Would you like to know why the Arizona Ivory Travertine Marble is the perfect natural stone for a residential build? Two words: resale value!
When it comes to building homes, the sturdier the build, the more that piece of property is going to cost, regardless of the location. At some point, quality will come into play and it will show in the property value of the home. The price of property is determined by location and quality. While location can’t always be helped, the quality of a home can be. As a developer or contractor, this is where you’ll want to consider incorporating a natural stone like travertine into a build.
Travertine is going to be relatively the least expensive natural stone for builders to invest in. Unlike other natural stones, travertine won’t require as much upkeep depending on the type of surface finishing you require. Also, travertine’s colors are more neutral, appealing to a vast array of buyers. Choosing a natural stone like travertine won’t offend potential buyers from purchasing your piece of property. Cream and Ivory are the main colors, but what gives travertine tile a little liveliness are the beige overtones that has a decorative swirl throughout the surface.
Travertine’s natural surface finishing is a honed, matte texture with a straight-edged finish. It’s a perfect choice for indoor and outdoor designs.
Affordable for Wholesale Buying
The best, cost efficient way for a developer or contractor to buy travertine tile—even if it’s already at a discounted price, is to buy in bulk. First of all, you’ll need to find a good wholesale distributor that will offer you the best pricing available. You also want to find one that won’t overcharge you in delivery costs.
Nalboor Tiles, located in South Florida, offers quality discounts and keeps a warehouse stocked full of travertine tiles that are ready to ship to your own warehouse or construction site at a moment’s notice. With some natural tile wholesalers, you may have to wait a few weeks—months even for your shipment to arrive. Some people have to wait that long just to get their supply of natural stone because oftentimes, the stone is quarried overseas. So the time it takes to cut the stone from the quarry and ship it to the United States, and then have it shipped across country (if necessary, depending on the delivery destination).
All this can take time, and in the contracting business, time is usually equivalent to cost. With Nalboor Tiles, the inventory is stocked right in our Miami warehouse, conveniently located near the ports to easily receive an ongoing supply of travertine shipment so that we never run low on supply.

Finishing constructions projects in a timely fashion goes a long way with satisfying clients—so much to the point where they may happily refer you to other potential clients.
Other Uses for Travertine
Travertine is also a versatile building material. Because of its porous properties, it’s widely used for outdoor décor for balconies, patios and flooring around pools and hot tubs. Its textured surface reduces the chance of a slip and fall in damp areas like bathrooms, laundry rooms, basements, and even outdoor kitchens.
Travertine also enhances a home’s curb appeal. If the exterior of a home isn’t attractive, oftentimes buyers won’t even bother to take the time to tour the interior. With most of real estate purchases happening online, many buyers often will buy a home based on how the exterior looks.
