Travertine Filling and Installation

Q: I found a pile of travertine tile in my newly purchased house. It’s not used anywhere in the house but would like to use it for a bathroom floor. Problem is, many of the tile have holes that go through, some as big as a dime. Is there anything to do to make this tile usable?

A: What you have is "unfilled" travertine. It can be filled with polyester fill or what is called traverfil. This is really not a do-it-yourself project so I would suggest you call in a PRO to have it filled as well as installed. Visit the Find a PRO section at to find a prescreened, quality professional in your area.
