travertine polishing


Recently installed some travertine. Got it on sale for $1.99 SF...great deal.

I am in the process ofcleaning and sealing to give it a semi-wet look with dupont stone enhancer (this stuff cost more than the travertine,,,,lol).

However, I heard of a polished look....anyone done it before?

I was thinking about using a hand held buffer to clean it first (water or tile cleaner) then seal it with the stone enhancer.....then polish it with....?

travertine polishing


Why not just use the high gloss sealer?

travertine polishing


I am using enhancer pro. I like the look of the enhancer because it darkens the color of the travertine. I have used it on part of the house and it looks great, but I was told that if you polished the travertine, it will give it a more "industrial" professional looking floor (the finish looks more like granite or marble).

I guess I could apply your idea and use and stone enhancer first, then use the high gloss sealer as you have suggested. Thanks for the idea
