We have a range of natural stones that are ideal for patio applications. Natural stone has a way of adding some real elegance wherever it is applied.
Flagstone or Patio Stone
If you have used earthy and rustic- styling in the indoor design of your home, flagstone can be great material for your patio; this will complement the appearance of the indoor areas and flagstone looks great in any outdoor space too. There are several benefits to using flagstone for patios such as:
- It has a natural, earthy look that blends in well with formal and casual-styled settings.
- You can choose from a range of colors and create the look you want in your home.
- These stones have a natural variation that lends the outdoor spaces a very elegant look.
- If you have an outdoor kitchen with a fireplace or fire pit on the patio, you can use flagstone veneer to complement the appearance of the flooring as well.
- It can be used as Stepping stones which have narrow packed joints that help create a highly-permeable surface that is perfect for patio installations.
- It’s hard-wearing and easy to maintain.
Types: Limestone vs. Sandstone
Like Veneer Stone, the Patio Stone we carry at BellStone is generally composed of Limestone and Sandstone with 90% being Sandstone. Sandstone is a sedimentary rock that was formed in layers by settling sand particles millions of years ago. The natural variations in Layers generally yield your thickness of Stone. Most of these stones are split with chisels at the Quarry. Some stone will “Flake”, but this is Natural where the two pieces of stone were split apart. In some rare cases, the stone can separate but generally, this is caught through quality control. We do try to provide quality materials, but it is important to know that our Flagstone was created by Nature and some minor flaking will occur. Limestone was formed through plant and animal fossils and generally doesn’t have the same layering effect. Therefore, this stone has to be cut with a diamond saw such as in Lueders 2.25” or Austin White Slabs.
Shapes and Sizes
In addition, there are several Shapes of Flagstone or Patio Stone. Most of the Shapes of Flagstone are an irregular broken pattern. Imagine dropping a plate and seeing the pieces. Depending on the specific material, Flagstone comes in thicknesses from ½”-2 ½”. Thin material such as 1” is generally used over existing concrete porches, pool decks, or cabana flooring. 1” stone needs the extra support of the concrete below similar to tile. 1 ½” stone is used for some of the same but can be used with a masonry mix underneath for support. 2” and thicker Stone is used for Pool Coping, Countertops, and Stepping Stones due to its thicker mass.
Flagstone can also come in Slabs either Lay-down or Stand-up. Slabs are pieces that are 2’-3’ wide and 3’-5’ long. Generally used by Pool Coping installers who like the longer pieces to create a custom look.
Flagstone Slabs can also be used for large stepping stones as well as Outdoor countertop materials.
There are also Pavers which are cut into square and Rectangles and create patterns.
