Best Recommended Grouting Material For Travertine


Dear all we just finished installing a feature wall in travertine and would like to know what would you suggest to use in order to fill in the gap between each slab.

i was thinking of Mapei Kerapoxy Design

We would like to match it as close as possible to the travertine colour and want to have the grout flush with the travertine not like it is on tiles.

Thanks

Why epoxy on a wall, glutton for punishment?

Inner is probably thinking, that being a wall, it is not going to get much foot traffic, unless it's a hell of a party!
Again, whatever you do decide to use, with Travertine, always PRESEAL!
