Flagstone Pavers- Houston Economical Choice


Flagstone pavers are excellent for Houston homeowners. They can be used for outdoor patios, gazebos, walkways, pool decking, or to add a beautiful border around your garden. If you want to spruce up your walkways, then choose a cut flagstone paver that is polished and elegant, or if you love that country charm, then go with the rustic look.

Pavers offers Houston plenty of options for your choice of layouts and colors. Consider tan and white or charcoal and cream. If you don’t have a preference, we suggest choosing a color that will complement the trim color of your home. For example, if your home is red brick, you may opt for a pink tone, or if your home has white trim, then choosing a dark color like charcoal will provide a nice contrast. However, dark-colored pavers in Houston heat will get hot quickly, making them unbearable to walk on, so you may want to consider a tan-colored stone for sunny areas.

If you use flagstone pavers for your patio or gazebo, we suggest granite or quartzite, which are more challenging than other cuts. One area where we don’t recommend flagstone is your driveway. Therefore, these pavers are thin and can't withstand years of being pressed on as you drive in and out of your driveway. In this instance, consider gravel or concrete pavers.

Pros of Pavers For Houston

pavers- houston

Easier to install: This is an excellent paver for Houston do-it-yourselfers because of its natural edges. They don’t have to align to give you a beautiful look.

Easy to repair: If a paver gets broken, you can lift and replace it without using grout or mortar.

Won’t Crack: These pavers can withstand Houston’s extreme heat without expanding or contrasting because they are less prone to shift.

Easy Upkeep: They are easy to maintain; all they require is sweeping and, on occasion, spraying them down with a pressure washer. If they happen to get moldy or covered by algae, mix a spray bottle with 20% bleach and 80% water and spray them off.

Long-lasting: If you’re looking for a paver that will stand the test of time, we know this because many ancient landmarks have been constructed from this flagstone.

Cons of Pavers In Houston:

Not Immune to Extreme Heat: Flagstone can still heat up when directly laid in the sun, especially if you choose a dark color.

Slippery: If you have children who love to run around a pool, you may want to choose another paver or keep it covered, as this stone can get slippery when wet.

Surface: If you use these pavers over sand, you may have to adjust the sand and level the ground. You can avoid this issue if you install your pavers with concrete mortar. With that installation, you will get permanent results and won’t have to make any changes or adjustments after the patio is finished.

Flagstone is an example of sedimentary rock. In general, Sedimentary rocks need sediment layers compacted by heat and pressure over a lengthy period. Therefore, they require today's heat, pressure, and sediment layers.

Cost of Flagstone Pavers In Houston


For materials and installation, you can expect to pay between $15.00 and $22.00 for pavers in Houston. However, this price also depends on the type of flagstone you choose. Houston homeowners can choose from six different types of flagstone pavers. The two most common are sandstone and bluestone. Sandstone can stay calm even when temperatures soar over 100 degrees. They have more of a rustic, rough texture look that is either the color of sand (hence the name) or dark red, whereas Bluestone has a hue of blue to grey, which looks great around swimming pools; another added benefit with these pavers for Houston pool owners is they have a naturally non-slip finish.

The average costs to install pavers in Houston are as follows:

•125–250 sq. ft. pathway costs $1,700-6,500

•300–500 sq. ft. walkway costs $3,700-$12,500

•300–600 sq. ft. driveway costs $4,500-$13,200
