Part three of our series on DIY Travertine Installation Techniques: Coconut Grove, FL – DIY Travertine Tiles Installation

Below is the process Martin in Coconut Grove, FL used to install our Premium Select Walnut Brushed & Chiseled Travertine Tiles on his screened porch:

I decided to keep the current porcelain tiles and lay the Travertine Tiles over top.

1. In order to create some traction on the porcelain tiles, I made slices with an electric saw, both horizontal and vertical across the porcelain tiles.

2. Due to the lack of freezing temperatures in Miami, I decided to mortar-set the tiles. I do not foresee this being an issue.

3. I was able to lay all of the tiles in one day, even cutting the larger pieces and finishing the borders.

4. Since it is a high traffic area, I sealed the area after two days of letting the mortar set.
