How to Fix "Holes" in Travertine

Holes in travertine are very common due to the stones honeycomb structure. Travertine tiles are like Swiss cheese and over time holes will appear. Travertine tiles are often sold filled and honed. This means that the holes have been filled at the factory and then ground down flat to a smooth honed finish.

Over time the factory filled resin can pop out and this will create holes and pits in the travertine tiles. Also, due to the unique nature of this natural stone, holes may appear out of nowhere if a heavy object has been dragged across the floor or if something is dropped on it. Another reason holes may appear is because of the natural nature of this stone, a void beneath the surface may open causing a hole on the surface of the stone.

Most holes can be repaired by the “do-it-yourselfer” with the right resin compound.
