Flagstone - Bluestone
Quarried in New York State and Pennsylvania, as well as in the Shenandoah Valley, bluestone is a highly durable natural stone. When installed properly and sealed for protection, homeowners can expect bluestone to last for decades. This natural material presents a range of colors, from blue to gold, brownish, reddish and slate gray. Bluestone pavers come in various shapes and sizes, including random cut, rectangular and square pavers.
Bluestone is a versatile natural stone. It can be used in many ways and applied to many residential and commercial building projects. It is a perfect choice for the outdoors due to its durability and hard wearing qualities. The main advantage of using bluestone pavers is the magical effect they create wherever they are laid. They are easily installed, they come in many shapes and sizes and they are very cost effective. Their toughness and long lasting textures are also huge advantages. Bluestone has a rough natural texture that makes it safe for any flooring application, even around pool areas. It is a very high dense material and it has the natural ability to withhold harsh and unfriendly weather conditions.
Bluestone is a porous natural stone, but, over many years, it will lose its natural beauty due to the water if it’s not sealed. Using a porous stone sealer will not only protect your pavers but it will enhance its natural color, adding depth and shine.
