Filled and Unfilled Travertine
Travertine is a unique stone that comes in many different finishes. All travertine can be categorized as filled and unfilled. What this means is that travertine naturally has holes that run throughout the stone.
Some people prefer the rustic, natural appearance of unfilled travertine, while others prefer the more uniform appearance of filled travertine — the holes are filled in so that the stone has a smooth finish.
Professional Restoration and Maintenance of Various Travertine Finishes
Honed (matte finish) and polished travertine finishes sometimes need to be re-honed to remove scratches and etching and re-polished. Brushed, saw cut, and tumbled travertine need to be professionally cleaned. All travertine finishes should be sealed from time to time.
