Flagstone Materials These stone materials are known to be an easy material to work with due to the flat mildly rough to smooth nature that comes from the splitting layers of sedimentary stone. Flagstone is not a stone itself but just the category name for this flat surface building material. Granite, slate, quartzite, sandstone, limestone, shale, and other types of stone are quarried around the world and made available for builders in the USA and Canada. Flagstone is available in literally hundreds of different solid and mixed colors, shapes, and thicknesses.
Select or Standup Grade: This size flagstone is the top choice for outdoor living areas, pool and spa decking and entertainment area surfaces, patio, and large pathway construction. Skilled masons can saw cut angles to fit the architectural or structural designs and needs of the project. Of course, larger workers can always reduce the large pieces to smaller stone size units where needed. A Select grade can also be set into a pathway and informal patio areas without a concrete slab, as the sheer size and weight of each piece combined with a proper setting of the stone will keep it solidly in place.
Patio Grade: This size is most useful in pathway and patio construction where a slab is available for setting the stone and then using mortar to hold it firmly in place. There some types of granite and quartzite stone that just do not come in a large supply of select grade flagstone sheets where the using patio grade is the only option. The colors and texture of the stone make it very desirable for the project location so the extra work is well worth the satisfaction for the finished look.
