Let us guide you through the decision-making process and explore the differences between travertine and porcelain pavers, including the installation process, applications, benefits, and quality of the product.

Understanding Travertine Pavers

Travertine pavers are crafted from natural stone, giving them a timeless and elegant appearance that adds sophistication to any outdoor space. Here’s what you need to know about travertine pavers:

Installation Process

The installation process for travertine pavers involves preparing the ground, laying the pavers in the desired pattern, and filling the joints with sand or gravel. Unlike some other paver materials, travertine pavers may require additional sealing to protect against staining and weathering.


Travertine pavers are versatile and can be used for a wide range of outdoor applications, including patios, pool decks, walkways, and driveways. Their natural beauty and durability make them an ideal choice for creating luxurious and inviting outdoor environments.

Travertine pavers offer several benefits, including

Natural Beauty

Each travertine paver is unique, showcasing the natural variations and patterns of the stone. This adds character and visual interest to your outdoor space.


Travertine pavers are highly durable and can withstand the elements, making them suitable for outdoor applications exposed to sun, water, and heavy foot traffic.

Cool to the Touch

Travertine pavers are naturally cool to the touch, even in hot weather, making them comfortable to walk on barefoot.

Low Maintenance

While travertine pavers may require occasional sealing to maintain their appearance, they are generally low maintenance and easy to clean.

Understanding Porcelain Pavers

Installation Process

The installation process for porcelain pavers is similar to that of traditional pavers, involving preparing the ground, laying the pavers, and filling the joints with sand or gravel. Porcelain pavers are typically thinner and lighter than natural stone pavers, making them easier to handle and install.


Porcelain pavers are highly versatile and can be used for a wide range of outdoor applications, including patios, pool decks, walkways, and rooftop terraces. Their sleek and modern appearance makes them a popular choice for contemporary outdoor designs.

Porcelain pavers offer several benefits​

Porcelain pavers are available in a wide range of colors, textures, and finishes, allowing you to create custom designs that complement your outdoor aesthetic.

Weather Resistance

Porcelain pavers are resistant to water absorption, freezing, and thawing, making them suitable for outdoor applications exposed to rain, snow, and temperature fluctuations.

Low Maintenance

Porcelain pavers are easy to clean and maintain, requiring only regular sweeping and occasional washing to keep them looking like new.

The people here are super helpful. I did not know there was turf for different needs and uses. They came out quickly for an estimate, walked me through the process and kept me in the loop. The installation guys were always nice when they were on the property, and they cleaned up after they were done. Our dog is enjoying her new backyard! Thanks to the owners for also taking a personal touch in thanking me for choosing them. I have recommended them to our neighbors. You also don’t break the bank.

They did a great job of working with me and my needs. I had a driveway and 2 walkways of concrete removed and replaced with hand set paver stone. The company is also affordable when compared to the completion. The crew of 4 that did my project really knew what they were doing and went out of their way to get everything just right. Even taking extra steps to allow for plumbing in our yard. This 800sf project was done in just over two days. I would highly recommend this company and would use them again. Thanks, Green Living Services and crew.
