I am going to install a 200 square feets area with travertine Stone Tile and I would like to know if it is best to seal it before installation to prevent the cement or grout to stick on these ?
What is the best way to get the best result ??
I don't think you need to seal before installing your travertine tile.
Although travertine has lots of holes in its unfilled state, it is pretty dense.
As long as you clean the grout off the tiles as you grout, you shouldn't have a problem.
If you really want to be cautious, you could seal before installation.
I would also seal the grout after installation, because its the grout that's really porous.
