What is Honed vs. Polished? Seems like an easy questions for most but if you're not familiar with different tile finishes than it might not be so simple. We want to help clarify that for you so you're selecting the right finish for your project. Honed and Polished are both standard finishes for tile when talking about natural stone Travertine, Marble, Granite, Limestone, or Slate.
When calculating the amount of Natural Stone Tile or Pavers you need for your project ordering the correct amount of overage is an important part. There is a rule of thumb within the industry when working with Travertine, Limestone, or Marble Tile which is ordering at least 10-12% overage for your project. This overage is important to cover waste, miscuts, and any material that is broken or chipped during installation or when pulled out of the pallet. The main focus for this is making sure you have the correct amount of material to properly complete your project and that you're not left short which can cost you time, money, and frustration.
