Unsightly Travertine

When the owners of a residential property and horse farm in Ocala, Florida first had their True Italian Travertine tiles installed, the floors were beautiful and elegant. However, they later discovered that some of the tiles had been unevenly set and weren't quite level with the adjacent tiles. They became increasingly dissatisfied with the appearance of their travertine as traffic and use took a toll on the finish. In time, the reflective quality of the polish faded and there were places where the floor had become scratched and etched.

Our Travertine Restoration Process

First, we ground the floor to level the uneven tiles. (In the stone and tile industry, this is called lippage removal.) To remove the etching, scratches, and damage, we honed the travertine. Then, we polished the floor to restore a glossy, gorgeous shine and applied an impregnating sealer to inhibit staining. The homeowners were very pleased with the results.
