Can the holes in travertine be filled?
Yes, the holes in travertine can be filled during the installation process.
How do I prevent staining on my natural stone tiles and grout?
The best way to do this is with the right sealer. Discuss with your installer or ask for a recommendation from one of our tile and paver experts. Keep in mind, however, that we do not sell these products in our factory store. Also, be sure to a neutral, non-acidic cleaner on your tiles to prevent the sealer from being stripped away.
