Travertine Hole Repair

So this is more than a simple hole repair. An entire travertine tile was broken out to remove. In doing so, all the edges of the good tiles surrounding the removed tile were damaged. With a square edge, factory filled, butt install installation, we find this common, where in someone’s best interest trying to repair one problem, they create another problem. All the surrounding tile edges were badly chipped. Since the owner did not have any spare tiles, we matched as best we could the color, and reset a new tile. Then we used small pieces of travertine and set them with epoxy in all the larger voids remaining. Any remaining gaps we fill in with color matching epoxy. After cure we then ground flat the entire area. We then refinished to match the surrounding areas.
So we were called in for a special project at a popular local shopping Mall. The new sign that was installed did not hide the large holes left from the previous sign. This project was difficult as most of it had to be completed on a 12 foot ladder and the holes being filled were behind letters that had sharp edges.
So here we have a large hole that opened up when broken pieces fell out. We were able to reset the pieces in epoxy, fill any remaining voids and provide a level 5/5 repair by grinding and finishing the area. A Level 5 out of 5 repair is where we are setting new pieces, or overfilling an area with epoxies, and with larger areas this may be multiple colors as to mimic the natural stone color, and then using a light grinder and leveling the entire area being repaired.
