Step 2: Sanding Joints
Step 3: Sealer coat #1
Once the travertine has been completely cleaned, sand is both dry swept and wet sanded into the expansion joints (cracks) to help stabilize the travertine. This is a critical step, as the sand keeping the pavers from shifting and holds them level.
(Note some travertine is grouted, in which case sanding is not needed.)
The final "finish" coat of sealer is then applied to give you paver that natural shine and luster that brings our beauty of your pool, patio or driveway. An optional coat of shark bite traction grit can be applied to reduce slipperiness, recommend around pool decks.
Step 4: Sealer Coat #2
The first "flood" coat of sealer is applied. This heavy coat of sealer is absorbed deep into the travertine and sand joints. The sealer "locks" in the sand to stabilize your pavers for years to come.

For professionals only! We recommend using extreme caution when selecting a professional to seal your Travertine.
