BLUE STONE PATIOS.

 

Patience required. Bluestones are essentially large rock puzzles, but we happen to be puzzle people. Plus, we love custom designing spaces that conjure memories of classic American homes. 

General Information

​​

  • Flagstones are another name sometimes utilized to describe irregularly designed blue stones. These designs tend to have a more natural shape and varying thickness. Due to this fact, we often recommend that irregular flagstones should be used for a beautiful walkway or path through your yard, versus a patio. However, we can recommend a unique design and strong patio that consists of both (uniform) thermal stones and irregular flagstone.

 

Facts

 

  • Bluestone can be found in several natural color varieties.

  • "Snapped" or "broken" bluestone, are positive terms used to denote a more organic edge on the slabs. 

  • Strength and durability of bluestone make it a good choice for high traffic areas like patios!

  • As bluestone is a natural stone a manufacturer can source the product without greatly impacting the environment.

  • Large bluestones can be broken into smaller organic pieces to add in niche positions. 

  • Thermal bluestone: each stone is identical in shape, design, and has a specific thickness. 

 

Maintenance and Cost

 

  • During installation, a sealant should be applied to protect against water and the chemicals commonly used in pools, de-icing, and on lawns. Bluestone without a sealant application is liable for damages from excess moisture, and absorbed chemicals can change the appearance of the stone.

  • Your overall project cost will be contingent upon the complexity of the project, materials, and labor.
