I think it is a trick question. You cannot put in on cement, but you can install it on concrete!

How long must you store in on the concrete prior to installation so it does not shrink? I guess by now he/she knows the answer is YES.

Ok Bob, now your being silly, everyone knows you acclimate it until it's done shrinking....

yeah I did not do this once and ended up with 1/4" joints. Had to go back and fill these the next day. What a lot of extra work.

travertine tile


How do I get grout haze off of newly layed travertine it is spotted and dirty looking. Rented a machine from Home Depot and used honing powder and it did nothing.

Have you used vinegar and water yet. Vinegar has acetic acid which got the haze off our tiles.
Hope this helps
