Australians love the outdoors. The warm Australian climate is typically conducive to an outdoor lifestyle – meaning many Australians will spend their days at the beach, or in parks, or by the pool taking advantage of the comforts only a home can provide.
But what if your pool or your pool deck needs some love and attention? Do you need to make it just a bit more inviting for friends and family to enjoy? Are you overwhelmed by the many choices available to homeowners like you who are looking to make home life – specifically life by the pool, more comfortable?
Don’t worry, we’ve got just what you need – travertine.
Let’s explore the different kinds of Travertine available right now and how significantly they can change your pool surrounds for the better.
Why Use Travertine?
Choosing the right material for your outdoor pool can be mind-boggling. What with the many options available to you today. But why do we recommend Travertine?
Top Benefits of Travertine
Water absorbency is the primary requirement of pool surrounds because water is constantly present around swimming pools.
- Travertine absorbs more water than any other paving material.
- The light colour shades of Travertine are 20-30% cooler than other natural stones or concrete pavers, thus creating the perfect atmosphere for your pool paradise.
- It is slip-resistant preventing family and friends from slipping on the wet surfaces
- It is extremely strong and is heat-resistant so its colour won’t fade over the years making your pool ‘age-resistant’ as well.
- It’s made of calcareous rocks deposited from mineral springs so it’s environmentally-friendly and creates a stunning and bold look to any surface.
