Bluestone Pavers vs Travertine Pavers For Your Home

by Ferguson L. Design and build customised to your lifestyle.
Bluestone pavers are a popular choice for homes all across Australia due to their durability and its natural ability to withstand the harshest of Australian summers.

It is a cost-effective solution that is easy to install but can be vulnerable to staining if not treated properly.

Bluestone is an appropriate paver for almost all areas of your home, include the patio and poolside area.

They are salt-resistant which makes them a popular paver for your pool area, and can be backed up with a composite decking which is also more durable than timber. 

However, given its dark colour, it can become hot when laid in areas exposed to lots of sun, which isn't a problem with travertine pavers due to their lower iron content.

Travertine pavers are cool to the touch, are also easy to install and have a similar cost to bluestone pavers.

Bluestone is a solid colour and can match the colour and layout of most homes, whereas travertine is more pattern-based and light in colour, which may not be the best choice for every home. 

It does require proper pre and current installation to ensure that you maintain a premium finish that stands the test of time. 

Cupping is a real possibility with bluestone pavers however, due to stone density, paver thickness and moisture so take this into account when installing pavers and make sure you vet your pavers for any quality issues.

Looking after your pavers is also another deciding factor, in which the surface of bluestone can quickly generate dirt and debris over time. 

Specific grout cleaners will help bring new life to your pavers.

When taking into account all of the choices for your home, you need to understand your budget, the appropriate dimensions of your space as well as how these pavers can accentuate your home depending on surrounding colours.
