Flagstone is a natural material made up of sedimentary stone that is split into “tile-like” layers in order for it to be easily laid. Flagstone consists of six identically shaped pavers, each with its own unique pattern, in six beautiful color blends that easily fit together to create an authentic look of natural flagstone at a fraction of the cost. This paver is installed in the same way as our other pavers, however, Flagstone requires the application of a Polymeric Joint Sand to fill the joints.
We strongly recommend using Techni-seal RG + Polymeric joint sand which is especially designed for use with the Flagstone’s wider joint. Regardless of the polymeric joint sand used, it is critical that you follow the manufacturer’s specific application instructions to ensure a successful installation. We can guide you through the process and offer expert advice before performing a professional installation that will stand the test of time. Determine your budget when you approach us with a budget, we can assist you within those boundaries to the best of our ability.

Benefits of flagstone paving- Environmentally friendly, Now more than ever, we have to be highly aware of how our choices affect the environment. Flagstone is a naturally occurring sedimentary stone that is quarried for construction use. This means that besides quarrying and cutting, there are no major environmentally hazardous manufacturing processes taking place for its use. It is also naturally occurring and sustainable.
Strength and durability- Chips, cracks, and breakages are highly unlikely due to regular force and daily treading. Also, natural elements are a breeze for flagstone. It is produced naturally, taking the burden of heat, wind, and rain out in relatively hostile environments.
Minimal maintenance- This is particularly true for flagstone paving applied outdoors. Flagstone is often covered with a type of sealant that will further protect it and also prevent excess dirt and grime sticking to it. There is little need to wash it or sweep it regularly. This is primarily true because of its natural aesthetic, which is more forgiving when it comes to cleanliness.
Non-slip- Because of the texture of flagstone, it allows for better grip when treading. This is particularly beneficial around the garden and pool when it comes to children and pets running around.
Color and cuts- Flagstone comes in a variety of natural colors that are easy to locate. Shades of peach, orange, yellow, brown, beige, and grey are very common; however, even blues and greens can be found. Besides color, you can also have your flagstone cut into irregular shapes that create a rustic mosaic look or you can choose to have more uniform squares.
