Flagstone Pavers Cost

Flagstone is a generic term for sedimentary rock. Pavers made from this material may consist of sandstone, quartzite, bluestone, limestone, travertine, basalt or slate. The rocks are cut into rectangles, squares, hexagons, or inter-connecting pieces so that home and property owners can use them for various outdoor projects. 

Flagstone Pavers

  • The average cost of basic flagstone pavers is $10.68 per square foot.
  • The minimum cost of basic flagstone pavers is $8.50 per square foot.
  • The maximum cost of basic flagstone pavers is $12.90 per square foot.
  • The average cost of mid-grade quality flagstone pavers is $14.19 per square foot.
  • The minimum cost of mid-grade quality flagstone pavers is $12.08 per square foot.
  • The maximum cost of mid-grade quality flagstone pavers is $17.72 per square foot.
  • The average cost of the highest quality of flagstone pavers is $18.20 per square foot.
  • The minimum cost of the highest quality of flagstone pavers is $16.59 per square foot.
  • The maximum cost of the highest quality of flagstone pavers is $20.44 per square foot.

Types of Flagstone Pavers

Flagstone pavers are usually sorted by the quality type of the sedimentary rock from which they are cut. The lowest quality of flagstone pavers are made from limestone. Mid-grade quality includes sandstone, bluestone, quartzite and basalt. The highest grade of pavers includes slate and travertine. Each type of flagstone paver has its own unique characteristics:

  • Sandstone comes in shades of tan or brown. It is sourced from the southwestern area of the U.S. It is pourous and can be damaged in freeze and thaw cycles so it must be sealed.
  • Quartzite offers a smooth and glassy looking surface. It is sourced from Idaho, Oklahoma and Utah. It comes in a wide range of colors including green, silver, gold, tan, blue and gray. It is resistant to wear and tear, extreme weather, stains and slipping. It can be etched from sharp objects. It gets dirty easily.
  • Bluestone is similar to sandstone but comes in a blue to gray color. It is sourced from Pennsylvania and New York. It is dense, non-pourous, slip resistant and can withstand extremely cold temperatures. It must be sealed to prevent scratching, staining and chemical wear such as from chlorine or salt.
  • Limestone has an elegant look. It is sourced from Indiana. It is available in a range of colors that includes gray, black, yellow and beige. It is weather resistant and durable. It is heavier than other types of flagstone pavers and is susceptible to etching from acid.
  • Travertine is a sub-type of limestone. It has a pitted surface. It is sourced from Montana and British Columbia and comes in brown, tan, gray and blue. It is durable and stays cool even in high outdoor temperatures. It is difficult to maintain and requires frequent sealing.
  • Basalt is from volcanic rock sourced from Montana and British Columbia. It is available in gray, black and beige. It offers unparalleled insulation and sound absorption. It can become dull in appearance without frequent sealing or polishing.
  • Slate is derived from clay and has a flaky appearance. It comes from Pennsylvania, Virginia, Vermont and New York and is available in silver, gray, green and copper. It is less commonly used as a flooring due to its easy splitting and low resistance to staining.

Where Flagstone Pavers Are Used

Flagstone pavers are typically used for outdoor projects such as patios. They can also be used for paths, building water features, ledges, tabletops, outdoor kitchens and stepping stones. They can be used along with sand and mortar to be fixed into the desired location so that they do not shift or settle.

Benefits of Flagstone Pavers

Flagstone pavers allow a home or property owner to create an outdoor living and recreation area with timeless appeal. They also offer many other additional benefits, including:

  • Durability
  • Wide range of colors
  • Natural look
  • Plentiful natural resource
  • Possibility of local sourcing
  • Available in many shapes and sizes
  • Affordable when cost is averaged over its lifespan

What to Consider When Selecting Flagstone Pavers

The primary consideration when selecting flagstone pavers is the outdoor temperature and precipitation. Cold temperatures or frequent freeze and thaw cycles can cause some types of pavers to crack, fracture or split. Unsealed travertine pavers may pit when exposed to rain or splashed swimming pool water. Traffic can also play a role, as slate does not stand up well with overuse, but limestone can handle a large number of people walking over it. It is important to choose a paver resistant to the types of stresses they may be put through.
