Everything You Need to Know about Travertine Wall Cladding

If you’re building a new home from scratch, or perhaps you’re renovating your outdoor area, you may be considering the use of stone wall cladding for your fencing and al fresco dining areas. Congratulations! Choosing how you’re going to decorate and protect your walls and fences can be a challenging choice, but now you’re faced with another difficult decision – which stone is right for you. 

We think travertine is a great choice for a wide range of applications, and wall cladding is no exception. With a selection of colours to choose from, it can suit almost any home and style. If this seems like something you may be interested in, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve compiled a list of everything you need to know about travertine wall cladding, to ensure you’re confident with your choice. 

  • What is it? 
    Our wall cladding pavers are made from the travertine stone, a member of the limestone family. Found near the hot springs of Turkey, it brings a beautiful Mediterranean appearance to your home, wherever you choose to use it. While it was primarily used as a building material as far back as 7000BC, it’s now the perfect choice for paving, tiling and of course, wall cladding. 
     
  • Is it durable?
    When using natural stone for any purpose, the first question many people ask is: Is it durable? We’re happy to report that yes, travertine wall cladding can be an incredible durable stone – provided it’s cared for properly. As soon as your walls are in place, seal them immediately, and you’ll find them far easier to clean in the long run. In fact, with the right sealant, they can become resistant to stains and discolouration, and look beautiful for years to come. 
     
  • Is it easy to clean?
    As we mentioned earlier, once properly sealed, they become very easy to look after. In general, walls remain fairly clean when compared to floors and pool coping. If you’ve noticed that your wall coping has become especially dirty – possibly after a long, dusty summer – then simply wipe them down with a natural soapy cleaner. However, acidic cleaners such as white vinegar should be avoided at all costs. 
     
  • Will it suit my home?
    Wondering if travertine is the right choice for your home? With a range of colours and shades available, you’re sure to find a stone that complements your property. Whether you’re looking for soft, off-white tones, walnut or even silver, travertine has the colours to match your personal taste and architectural style.
