Flagstone:

Flagstone is a hard, flat stone, cut or split that is popular for patio floors because of its distinctive, natural look. Typical colors are red, blue and buff. Flagstone is extremely durable and can last for centuries. Bleach and water will remove most stains, but grease or rust stains call for harsher chemicals. Since flagstone is laid in pieces, it is easy to replace broken or cracked stones without tearing up the whole patio. Flagstone requires little maintenance beyond regular sweeping away of debris that could leave stains or mold on the stone. However, the size and heft of some of the stones makes flagstone somewhat cumbersome to work with. Also, in order for the patio to be level, the depth of the base must be adjusted to accommodate the varying thickness of the stone. Flagstone reflects the sun so that means it can get pretty hot underfoot, and it can get slippery if wet. Still, flagstone handles different climates well and doesn’t expand and contract when the weather changes. Flagstone laid in sand needs regular readjustments to keep it level as it settles, while a flagstone patio set in concrete results in a permanent patio that requires virtually no maintenance.

Limestone:

We offer gorgeous limestone pavers that will give your outdoor space a distinctive look. Available in several light neutral hues and in a wide range of sizes, as well as pattern kits, they’re the perfect choice for patios, walkways, terraces, and other exterior projects. Use them alone or pair them with any number of our other hardscape elements for creative, one-of-a-kind designs.

Pavers:

Pavers are a popular choice, even they’re not perfect. Brick pavers are known for their strength and durability. They’ll stand up to heavy use and rough weather without scuffing, warping or scratching. The interlocking system of pavers means the final product is even stronger than individual blocks. Sealing bricks protects them from stains. Brick pavers are as close to “set and forget” as any material can be. Sweep them when needed, and wash stains with soapy water if they occur. Pavers do require resealing approximately every 3 years. Occasionally a paver or two may settle disproportionately and need to be reset. Even with these few considerations, pavers require much less care than almost every other material. After all, if one brick gets damaged, replacement is a simple chore. However, pavers don’t allow for a great deal of versatility in design. They are available in a few different colors and textures, and some variation of design can be achieved by the layout. A brick patio is elegant and classic, and may be ideal for an older home that already has other brick elements. But the overall look of a brick patio is not modern a one.
