❍ There are many benefits such as;

Slip-resistant even when wet, durable and resistant to high heat to the extreme cold. A professional installation to ensure the bedding is properly and firmly done and your flagstone will be set for decades without cracking, moving or bending.

❍ Nothing is perfect so of course there is a few draw-backs.

Flagstone installation is hard work, but mostly for your expert contractor! Preparing the sand and gravel bed for flagstone, individual stones with a different size by several inches and vary by weight. Thus, in order to have a perfect level finished patio designs that will stand the test of time, the mark of a connoisseur contractor is preferable.

❍ Pavement or concrete can be;

Dyed, textured and stamped while curing. For example some designs will stamp geometric shapes, wooden planks or textures to imitate natural stone or brick. Unlike flagstone, pavement & concrete is a complete flat and solid surface, the growth of weeds is unlikely to occur.

❍ Your draw backs are;

Stress fractures from weathering, roughness of the concrete created to make it a non-slip surface can be truly armful if someone is to trip’n fall. If you decide to change your patio design or expand your home, concrete/pavement offers no lineage, you can’t simply make room by removing or adding a few flagstones.

To summarize, both flagstone and concrete offer customization to fit your space and your taste. It truly all comes down to your preference and budget.
