    Paver recommendation needed

    Hi
    Does anyone know of a brand of pavers that has one that resembles beige tone travertine? We live in PA and I don't think real travertine will wear well over the years b/c of the freeze and thaw issue...I don't really want poured concrete or aggregate b/c it will eventually crack. Any other suggestions?

    Thanks!

    You are not going to find any man made paver that even comes close to travertine.
    I tried.

    so what did you end up going with?? I am actually reconsidering PA Bluestone but am afraid it will be too hot on bare feet...

    I live in Maryland and last fall put down 1600 sg ft of travertine pavers and had no problems over the winter.

    This is what I'm doing with my deck all around the pool. I'm placing buff sandstone in the middle. I've got concrete deck around the pool, but I wanted the buff sandstone in the area I'm doing my own deck so people can walk on it when it's hot...
