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.
As temperatures rise progressively higher in the coming months, there's a distinct possibility homeowners will be getting their properties prepared for an exciting spring and summer season. Amongst many spring cleaning and landscaping projects, one might choose to take into consideration taking a second look at backyard pools and patio areas.
Travertine, Marble, Slate, and Limestone provide an unmatched combination of natural beauty, affordability, luxury, and durability for a variety of projects. Generally these materials come in tiles that range from 3/8’’ to 5/8’’ thick depending on the format, making them excellent options for interior applications as well as exterior applications where there is an available concrete surface to install upon and the tile will not be exposed to freeze-thaw cycles.
