Noce Travertine Pavers

The Tri-State area is still feeling the effects of Hurricane Sandy months after it has passed.  Many homeowners in the New Jersey and New York coastal areas suffered tremendous damage to their property.  Wooden decks and patios were torn from their foundations and houses were crippled under the storms winds.  Those people fortunate enough to only suffer exterior damage still need to overcome the challenge of rebuilding.  With many clients in the area Elegant Tile and Stone sent representatives to survey the damages.  What we found was our travertine and marble pavers were the only installations that did not suffer any damages.  How could this be possible when so much damage happened in many cases right next door?

To answer the question a deeper look into the history of travertine and marble pavers is necessary.  These paver products which originally became popular in the Florida area show insight into their stability and security.  The total number of Florida hurricanes encompasses over 480 tropical or subtropical storms. More storms hit Florida than any other U.S. state, and since 1851 only eighteen hurricane seasons passed without a storm impacting the state.  In the most hurricane affected state in the country travertine and marble pavers stand the test of time and durability.  By offering them at the premium grade level to pass industry standard testing, Elegant has brought these pavers to the Tri-State area.
