Stacked stone and flagstone veneeer

lbphathead19September 20, 2012

We are debating between stacke dstone and flagstone veneer on our raised spa walls and the raised bond beam. Anyone have any thoughts on the 2. Will one take moisture better than the other? What other consideratios should I take into account or is it purely aestetics?

They should both endure the weather the same. The stacked stone will be more expensive

Flagstone comes in varying density-some softer, some harder-but it is still sandstone. Even with our Oklahoma Taupe (I am sure different yards have different "color" names)", hardness varies from stone to stone.
From a pure aesthetics perspective, vertical walls always look better with a stacked look than laying the stone flat.

I would seal the stone, regardless of what type it is.

This is a pic of our flagstone walls to give you an idea.
