Has anyone seen 4x8 sheets of Travertine veneer?

onabalconyMay 22, 2012

When I lived in Phoenix AZ I saw an amazing product at a "Home Show" and now that I've moved across the country and really need to remodel a bath I can't recall the name of the product let alone the distributor. Hoping that someone here can help jog my brain. Anyhow, at first glance, the product "looked" like a 4'x8' sheet of travertine stone! Actually it was a veneer product. The honest to goodness travertine stone was probably 1/4" thick and was adhered to a sheet of aluminum (and perhaps other layers, idk) making the entire sheet lightweight enough to be handled by the homeowner. It sounds bizarre but the product was gorgeous with so many pluses, no grout lines, real stone, lightweight and great for the diy-er. I live in Northern VA now and have googled my fingers to the bone but am finding nothing for residential applications. Thanks in advance for any tips, suggestions or leads!!

Ok, so I finally found the link below. It sounds much like what I saw at the Phoenix Home Show but without the 'honeycomb' feature. This company is in India but it's the only lead I've found so far...

So, I googled "granite veneer" and got this among others:

these seem cool. I'd be interested to see how they cost-compare to other alternatives--especially for water proofing.
