Travertine Pavers Cons
More expensive than concrete – Since travertine goes through a more vigorous manufacturing product and is a natural stone it can cost 20% or more above the cost of concrete pavers.
Needs to be sealed – Travertine pavers, if left exposed, can be damaged by the weather. The surface can erode or cracked if not sealed. In addition sealing helps prevent mold or mildew from forming.
Can be damaged – They can also get worn down and chipped if passed over by heavy items or exposed to high foot traffic. This is why, though they are used outside, they aren’t used for outdoor areas with high traffic, such as driveways or walkways.
Need to use the proper cleaning products – Care needs to be taking that one doesn’t use corrosive chemical agents that may damage this stone.
