Luxurious Travertine and Marble Pavers Surround Florida Pools
Stone is a popular material in the construction of swimming pools. Since the ancient Greeks and Romans discovered the sleek and versatile use of marble and travertine, those stones have been associated with luxury and culture. Combine that with the growing trend of homeowners installing private swimming pools and demand for that stone material in deck pavers and pool coping has increased over the years.
There are over 8.8 million private pools in the U.S. alone. Swimming is one of the most popular methods of exercise in the country, coming third to walking and exercising with equipment. Private swimming pools are a key feature in outdoor entertaining. Americans have embraced the idea of creating their own private and luxurious pools for use in leisure and exercise activities.
Just under 40 percent of Florida homes also involve in-ground swimming pools. It's not that surprising when one considers the fact that Florida can enjoy their pools year round. That said, the winter months are a popular time for home owners to either install a new pool or renovate an existing one. This construction demand frequently involves the use and installation of travertine and marble stone in and around the pool.
Marble is significantly more expensive than travertine. However, since travertine can offer a similar look and feel as marble, it is increasingly in demand for budget-conscious homeowners. The benefits of travertine are:
· Soft and smooth texture that feels great underfoot.
· Weathers and ages well.
· Versatility in design.
