What Makes Paramount Stone Better Than Travertine?
Travertine is an attractive form of limestone, which made it a popular choice for what used to be high-end remodels especially for hardscaping and pool decks. The problem with travertine is that it’s not the best material for wet surfaces and it’s high maintenance. It is extremely porous and can show signs of wear and tear after a while. It is also susceptible to staining and etching which means preserving the stone’s natural beauty can be a nightmare. Travertine, like any glazed tile, is slippery when wet. Coatings and texturing can increase the SCOF (static coefficient of friction) of travertine from .10 to .30 and texturing the stone can raise that number to .60 or .70 at best.
Here’s what makes Paramount Stone the ultra-premium choice for the new standard in high-end remodels and the uttermost sought-after natural stone in the industry: We’ve solved all the problems with travertine while maintaining the elegance and beauty of the natural stone. Our proprietary method of texturing brings our SCOF score to an average of 1.05, which exceeds the commercial requirement for slip-coefficiency. Take a look at all the features and benefits our stone has to offer.
