Why Travertine Decking is a Smart Choice in Phoenix
When it comes to choosing the right materials for your pool or backyard deck, there are several benefits for using travertine pavers – especially in Southeastern Phoenix. Some of the leading reasons why you should consider this type of material include:
- Decreased surface temperature: Nobody loves to walk over hot stones in their backyard – especially if you’re getting in or out of a swimming pool. The travertine pool decks tend to be 20 to 30 percent cooler than most natural stone surfaces or concrete. Of course, the darker materials will collect more heat than lighter, but this will not only keep your feet cooler, but can increase longevity as well.
- More water absorbent: While concrete is traditionally a great absorber of water, most tiles or flagstone materials are not. Since most swimming pools have children or elderly that use them in the Phoenix area, making sure the deck surface can absorb water quickly is a primary concern. Travertine decks have a better slip resistant rating than other tiles and stones.
- Non-Fading Natural Stone: While high-end paving materials are designed with fade resistant material, overtime and extended exposure to the Arizona sun says differently. Travertine pool deck material is a natural stone, with a permanent color that will not fade overtime.
- Incredibly Durable: While it’s considered to be a soft-stone, travertine is twice as strong as concrete. This makes this surface incredibly durable and does not require frequent patching like concrete decking.
