Travertine Tiles are the likely Google search term for people beginning their search for pool decking. Consumers usually do not know the difference between travertine pavers that are 1.25 inch thick and travertine tiles that are 1/2 inch thick. The common misperception is that travertine pavers are for outdoors and travertine tiles are for indoors. Travertine pavers can be installed sand set but the tiles require thin set or mortar.
However, an important thing to keep in mind is that Travertine Mart’s Tumbled Travertine Tiles can be used indoors and outdoors.
Our Tumbled Travertine Tiles has the same surface finish as the tumbled pavers which makes them ideal for pool decks. If installed with a flexible mortar product, tumbled tiles will perform great even in freeze/ thaw climates. They will be able to expand and contract with the cycles, preventing cracking that may occur otherwise.
