Stone Flagstone Steps Landscape Construction

Flagstone steps provide a durable, attractive finish to the appearance of any doorway. Not only do they look good, they also add value, so contact us if you are planning a flagstone steps project. Most projects can be completed in one or two days.

There are four primary reasons why flagstone steps are a good choice for your property. They come in a wide variety of styles, are durable, aesthetically pleasing, and do not require much maintenance. We'll examine all four reasons below.

Flagstone Steps Are Durable

If properly installed, flagstones will stand the test of time. They are incredibly tough and do not suffer in heavy rains. In fact, the rough texture will provide enhanced traction and minimize tumbles due to slipperiness. However, the foundation must be correctly planned and installed, so contact us at Blackwell Masonry if you are looking for expert flagstone work.

Wide Selection of Styles and Colours

Flagstone steps are available in a wide selection of prices, colours and styles. Explore your native stone options first as they tend to be less expensive and are more likely to blend in with the environment. More exotic options will tend to be more expensive. Having installed many stairways over the years, we can assist you if you are looking for advice about pricing and  the best stones available for your particular project.

Low Maintenance Required

Flagstone requires little more than regular sweeping to keep its appearance. However, if you have a damaged stairway, it may be as a result of a poor initial installation. We have had years of experience with flagstone so call us if your property is in need of repairs. 

Flagstones Have Eye Appeal

Flagstones are pleasing on the eye. They are one of the more aesthetically satisfying stones to use on an entryway. A well installed, attractive flagstone walkway is sure to be appreciated by your neighbours and add value to your property.
