Is it OK to use travertine as outdoor patio pavers in New Hampshire?

I'm worried that the holes would allow a freeze-thaw. Is it ok to install travertine stone over compressed stone (Nit-Pack)?

Hi Caroline, Did you decide on your pavers? Would love to hear what you discovered. That's one thing we don't worry about a lot on the west coast.

It's practically impossible to find non-natural pavers that look good. Limestone requires a cement slab and travertine is too porous. Hope that answers your question!

Hi Caroline - Can you give me an idea what color ranges you were looking for? We have some options that would work in your climate and doesn't need the concrete slab.
