This week we are beginning a job on 1500 sq. ft. of travertine. It is a poor installation: The grout joint is about 3/8 inch and there is a lot of lippage, and as a matter of course around here, sanded grout. We did a sample area of 4 tiles last week. In spite of all that we were overcoming, the test turned out quite well. The owners liked it and they want us to proceed. Here are some questions that I have:
1.) How can I ramp up the areas of lippage so that we are not knocking off the edges with our klindex?
2.) We filled pin holes that opened up with tennax epoxy filler. This is not user friendly, in that it has to be done rather quickly. Might we use traverfill? The holes comprise less than 10 per cent of the tile. I am hoping that using traverfill rather than the epoxy the degree of polish will not be significantly affected.
3.) Any suggestions that will help us avoid scratching the tiles from the sanded grout?
4.) Any prayers would be duly appreciated.
