Flagstone is a natural stone that is popular for stairways and walkways because it gives a natural look; however, it is more expensive than pavers. This is because pavers are a manufactured material, where each brick or piece is a uniform shape and size. Where flagstone needs to be excavated from a quarry in slabs, pavers are made in a factory using raw materials and rock particles. Both are quality materials that will last for years to come, but a natural flagstone will last longer than a paver.

Both pavers and flagstones create a distinct look. Determining which is right for you will depend on your budget, your personal style, and the project’s goals.

What is Flagstone?

Flagstone is a flat stone that has been broken up into different shapes and sizes. The most popular types of rock for flagstone used here in the Midwest are sandstone and limestone. We can complete anything from outdoor stairs or steps to various paved walkways using different rock thicknesses. This will increase your home’s value and curb appeal, and you will also appreciate the stone’s natural beauty each time you use the space.

What are Pavers?

Pavers are a highly durable manufactured stone.  Most manufactured stone come with a lifetime product guarantee and does not require a regular maintenance plan, which is recommended for flagstone. When it comes to your outdoor living area’s design, pavers offer you virtually endless color and customization options.
