What is Flagstone?
Flagstone is a sedimentary rock that splits well along the plane, making it an ideal product for paving walkways, steps, and patios. It is usually composed of feldspar and quartz, and is durable and appealing to the eye.
Benefits of Flagstone
There are many benefits to using flagstone as a paving solution. The product does well in a wide variety of climates, is durable, and is unlikely to crack or warp. In icy climates it allows for better grip than other surfaces, and properly installed it allows water to drain down through the joints rather then pooling or flowing to the outer edges of the fixture. Flagstone resists termites and other insects, is easy to work with, is commonly available, and works in a wide variety of areas.
Flagstone comes in a variety of colours, styles, shapes, and textures (although prices do vary). Price variations are due to availability, transportation costs, variability of the stone, whether it is cut or uncut, and several other minor factors. Typically, prices range from $3.90 to $11.00 per square foot. Including project installation costs usually brings the cost per square foot to $15-$30.
