Colors

Travertine comes in many colors, from red to ivory to gold. Generally, you'll want a lighter color to best reflect the Arizona sun. 

Size

Travertine pavers come in several different sizes, allowing you to create an array of patterns and/or mosaics in building your deck. Or, for a more modern design, use simple large square pavers. 

Grading

Travertine comes in three different grades: premium, standard, and commercial. The number of holes and color consistency determine the grade. Ask for clarification from any builder who does not specify what type of travertine they intend to use in your yard. 

Price

Travertine is neither the cheapest nor most expensive decking material. Pricing begins at $12.50/SF and is dependent on size, type and installation.
