    Hey all, any recommendations for fixing this chip in a travertine tile that I have? I figure I can fill it with something that will make it hardly noticeable. I know its a porus rock, and it already has holes filled with a tannish colored something.
  2. Kitchen & Bath Remodeling
    I purchased 3x6 tumbled rough Travertine tile to do my kitchen backsplash with the intent of doing a Herringbone design. After purchase, my wife tells me she now prefers a diamond pattern :-) Easy enough for me to cut each of those 3x6 tiles into 3x3 but I'm wondering if so many cut lines on...

    Please help ASAP. I am getting conflicting information. The more I research and ask around, the more answers I get. I am having travertine installed in less than a week and I am stuck on preparing the subfloor. I am trying to do myself to save money. I am female but have a couple of strong...

    I am exploring using Travertine Pavers on a raised deck. They will be sitting on a grate that is attached to deck joists, so trapped moisture and upheaval will not be a problem. I will have landscaping fabric directly under the travertine to catch sand/polymer/stone dust or what ever I use...

    Hey everyone. I have a question in reference to sealing travertine tile. Do you apply a standard tile/grout/marble/granite sealer to the travertine?

    I have a fireplace with a white painted wood mantle/surround. Further within the surround (immediately surrounding fireplace opening) is a painted brick surround that is 5 inches wide on sides and top. I plan to attach split-faced ivory travertine strips over the brick surface (see picture...

    We're installing honed/filled travertine tile in our guest bathroom on the floor and on the walls for the tub/shower combo. Should travertine be sealed and if so should it be done prior to installation, after installation but before grout, or after grout? If it is done before installation...
  9. Tiling, ceramics, marble
    Hi all. Here's the deal: we pulled up sheet vinyl from our kitchen floor to find what we think is interior-grade plywood on the floor (2 layers, each about 1/2-5/8" thick). The only reason we think it is interior grade is because it doesn't appear green, as if it was pressure treated. We have no...
