When remodeling your home, it is easy to overlook outdoor areas like the driveway. However, it should be one of the areas that you should consider upgrading, too. After all, it is one of the first things people will see when they pass by or visit your home. The right material lets you transform your driveway into something as elegant and as luxurious as your home. Travertine is one of the materials you should consider if you want a driveway that can withstand extreme outdoor conditions in any season.
Travertine is a type of limestone that is typically used for floor tiles, but iconic buildings like the Sacre-Coeur in France, and ancient structures, like the Roman Colosseum have proven its durability for outdoor applications, too. You can never go wrong with travertine pavers if you want a durable driveway that can last for generations. Their longevity will ensure a cost-effective purchase and installation.
Suppliers of natural stone tiles offer travertine pavers that can be used for any outdoor area, including your driveway. Pavers come in different colors and styles, so you should be able to build a custom driveway that can effectively communicate your property's character, while making sure that your home's exterior looks elegant. A travertine driveway can make your home look bold and different from others in your neighborhood. The natural veining on each paver creates one-of-a-kind patterns that can provide a more bespoke appearance.
Travertine is durable, but in case it gets damaged, it will be easier to fix your driveway and change the pavers. Replacing it will be more reasonable and cost-effective, since you can replace a few pavers without worrying about the new ones looking mismatched with the existing ones. Installation is easier, too, since it can be shaped and cut easier, making DIY work an option.
A travertine driveway is considered more environmentally friendly because it is an all-natural material. This means the pavers never go through a conventional manufacturing process, and they are not treated with toxic chemicals that can off-gas or release harmful elements into the soil. Travertine is considered safe, too, especially if you buy chiseled or tumbled pavers that will provide a non-slip surface for your driveway.
