Flagstone: A Natural Touch
The appeal of flagstone is in the way it brings a touch of nature to outdoor living spaces, entryways and walking paths. Of course, nature has a way of getting out of hand as it invites unwelcome growth and decay, all of which can be prevented with proper flagstone care.
Why Flagstone Needs Maintenance
Natural colors in the sandstone family, including reds, bluish hues and light, brownish yellow (or “buff”), connect us with the beauty of rocky regions where flagstones are sourced. After they are installed on your property, that beauty is obscured by natural and manmade threats:
Grime. The sealant has a tendency to collect dirt, calcium residue and debris, discoloring or staining the surface.
Fungi. Mold and mildew can grow easily outdoors, especially in high humidity and low sun exposure.
Erosion. Over time, rain, freezing and foot traffic can erode the surface and cause flaking, encouraging separation.
The key to bringing out the natural beauty of flagstone is to preserve its bold earth tones through routine professional maintenance.

Other Flagstone Services
For deeply stained grout, we use a safe but powerful cleaning solution and gently abrasive brushes to completely scrub out the discoloration, bringing out the grout’s original color.
It’s natural for cracks and gaps to develop in the grout between flagstones over time. We use an exterior-grade epoxy to rebuild the grout, preventing water access that can cause separation.
Water, debris, and soil erosion will cause your flagstones to separate and become uneven. We can put the stones back together with a perfect fit and a long-lasting bond on an even plane.
Even with a relatively modest impact, flagstone tiles can chip or crack. We use a special epoxy for indoor and outdoor flagstone tiles that can repair the damage and match their natural color.
