Additional colors and shades may be available from other companies. Because slate is broken down from larger rocks, the slate pieces can be broken into pretty much any size homeowners’ desire. Homeowners can choose pieces that are all the same size or even mix and match sizes to create their own unique look. When slate is broken down into pieces, the shapes that result vary greatly. Homeowners can request certain shapes or request a mixture of several different shapes to achieve the look they desire.Additionally, slate can be broken down into various thicknesses depending on homeowner’s preferences. Larger pieces can make for a sturdier patio, but they are also heavier and more expensive.

What are the Various Uses for Slate Patios?

What are the Advantages and Disadvantages of Choosing a Slate Patio?

There are many great reasons why homeowners should choose slate, or any other kind of flagstone, for their patio. It looks great with nearly every home. It comes in a wide variety of colors, textures, shapes and sizes, and it easy to install and maintain. Flagstone generally last for many years, but if it does crack, individual pieces can be replaced.

Secondly, it can become very slippery when it gets wet, making it a safety hazard. Also be aware thatslate is often not readily availablein large sizes and that it requires sealing for stain resistance.

What Factors Affect the Price of Slate Patio Installation?

A licensed and bonded patio builder with several years of professional experience will almost always cost homeowners more money to hire than a general mason with fewer years of experience. Homeowners need to evaluate their budgets and the difficulty of their project in order to ensure that they hire the right professional for the job without spending more than they need to.

Because slate varies so much in terms of color, texture, size and thickness, the cost of slate can vary as well. Thankfully, professionals who routinely work with slate usually know where to find the best quality slate for the lowest prices.

If homeowners request certain specifications that make a project more difficult, such as heavier stones or an irregularly shaped patio, the project could be more difficult and end up costing homeowners more.Larger patios require more materials and time to complete so they will almost always cost homeowners more than smaller patios.

Project costs can vary significantly based on which part of the country they are completed in. Homeowners who live in areas with a higher cost of living will generally pay more for the exact same materials and labor than people living in other parts of the country.Job prices can also vary depending on the particular time of the year. Companies may charge higher rates during the busy times of the year and lower rates during the off-season.

How Can Homeowners Save Money on Slate Patios?

First of all, they should call around to get quotes from several area companies to see who can provide the best rate. They should also choose cheaper materials and wait until the off-season to have their patio installed, if possible.
