About Flagstone Delivery
Popular types of flagstone include familiar stones like sandstone, quartzite, bluestone, limestone, travertine, basalt and slate. This Landscaping Network guide compares these common types in color and texture, and lists the pros and cons of each. As you will see, flagstone is available in many colors, including beiges, reds, blues, greens, browns and grays.
Since it is naturally layered, flagstone is resistant to peeling or deterioration and it holds up to decades of use. However, most types should be sealed to avoid staining and fading.
Keep in mind that because flagstone is natural, not manufactured, you are limited in color and type to what has been quarried. Some types are not always readily available, and anything that is difficult to find and/or in high demand will be more expensive.
Cost of Flagstone Delivery
Flagstone is fairly expensive because it is a high-quality, natural material. The price varies based on the type of flagstone and color, how much you need and your geographic location.
Flagstone is either priced by the square foot or the ton. For materials alone, prices range anywhere from $150-$1,000 per ton (covers 80-90 square feet) or $2-$12 per square foot. Most varieties fall on the low to middle end of those ranges. Sometimes delivery is included in the cost; sometimes not.
If you plan on hiring a professional to complete your project, budget $15-$20 per square foot on average, or occasionally as much as $30 per square foot. That includes the base material, flagstone, and all labor and site preparation.
