Stoneshine Resolves Travertine Problems
If your travertine is dirty or dull-looking, scratched, etched, cracked, chipped, or otherwise damaged, don’t replace it! Stoneshine can restore your travertine, not just making it look better, but making it look brand new again.
About the holes in travertine...
Travertine naturally has holes that run throughout the stone, and that's why it comes in what is known as "unfilled" and "filled." With unfilled travertine, the holes remain exposed for a rustic, earthy finish. With filled travertine, the holes are filled in, giving the stone a smooth finish.
Stoneshine can fill holes in travertine, a process called “travertine floating,” to give unfilled travertine a smooth appearance or to repair filled travertine with holes that have become exposed. We use tinted filler and then blend the repair site with the surrounding area, honing and polishing it to match the finish on the rest of your travertine.
Travertine Refinishing and Sealing
Travertine comes in a honed (matte finish) and a polished finish. These finishes need to be cared for and will from time to time need honing to remove scratches and etching or it will need to be re-polished and sealed. Stoneshine provides services that will keep your travertine looking like new. We can clean, hone or polish and seal your travertine and give it a custom finish.

For certain types of travertine, our skilled technicians can apply an enhancing sealer to intensify the color and enrich its natural beauty.
Regular cleaning and janitorial services are valuable for simple, day-to-day care of travertine floors. But over time, their processes leave floors with grout lines that just won’t come clean, shiny scratches, and increasingly obvious traffic patterns. As these problems develop, you become more and more dissatisfied with the appearance of the floors until it’s time for another round of professional restoration. With our regularly scheduled maintenance program, your floors can look great all the time, without the need for periodic restoration.
