Marble has many decorative and structural uses. It is used for
outdoor sculpture as well as for sculpture bases; in architecture
it is used in exterior walls and veneers, flooring, decorative
features, stairways and walkways.  The way in which the stone is
used may be a factor in limiting or controlling the severity of
exposure.  The use or function of the marble may also affect the
feasibility of applying certain treatments, but type of use is not
the primary factor in the major types of deterioration and damage
to which marble is susceptible.

Marble itself can be of two types, one composed of calcite and the
other of dolomite.  Dolomitic marble is much more resistant to acid
attack than calcite marble.  The color of marble ranges from the
brilliant white of calcite to black, including blue-gray, red,
yellow and green, depending upon the mineral composition.

What is the difference between premium grade travertine, commercial grade or A grade?

The grade of travertine is most of the time determined based on the holes within the stone. Holes within Travertine stone are part of the stones nature and criteria. Within the travertine industry today, the rule of the thumb is ...the less holes there are within travertine stone, the higher the quality. Travertine pavers with barely any holes in it are considered A Grade or Premium Grade quality while porous stone with a lot of holes in it (looking like a sponge) is considered commercial quality. Obviously price differences apply. Also keep in mind that there are Travertine tiles which come with a honed and filled finish. A filled travertine finish indicates that the holes were filled. Since the filling is always the same color throughout the tile it is fairly easy to tell apart the filling. In these cases, the difference between Premium Grade and Commercial grade lies in the amount of filling used. A honed and filled travertine tile with a whole lot of filling is considered of lower quality compared to a tile with minimal filling.

A benefit of travertine is that it's easier to fix than marble or porcelain. Travertine is often comparable to porcelain and marble in appearance, but it is so much easier to fix travertine over these other flooring types. Replacing travertine affordably is much more reasonable. You can often find a travertine tile that matches with your existing flooring with ease. This can save you a lot of time and money in the long run. Porcelain and marble tiles can be difficult to match exactly when you are looking for a quick fix. Installing travertine floors is also much simpler than other flooring types. It can be cut and shaped much easier than porcelain or marble, which is a major advantage. This is especially important if you are looking to repair or install travertine tiles on your own.

It is also environmentally friendly.  Many homeowners are constantly looking for new ways to join the “Going Green” trend. Choosing more environmentally friendly flooring options can be a great place to start. Travertine is much more eco-friendly than porcelain, because it is a natural material. This means that travertine tiles do not have to go through the manufacturing process.
