Exotic wood is probably the most common material used for decking. However, there are other materials such as bluestone that are also great for patio cladding. Here are a few reasons why you should choose bluestone as your terrace flooring!
Elegant, blue stone is a coating that naturally seduces with its beauty. Very aesthetic, it doesn’t limit the choice of decoration. In fact, it offers several surface treatment options. You can find soft, sandblasted, aged, bush hammered, flamed or rough sawn surfaces on the market.
Blue stone is also available in several formats. You can therefore choose to lay your terrace with a square or rectangular blue stone. In addition, the appearance of blue stone takes on a patina over time. Your blue stone terrace will therefore not lose its beauty over the years.
Blue stone is hard, non-porous, extremely compact and dense. It therefore offers good resistance. Thus, the bluestone terrace does not have to fear bad weather, heavy loads or temperature fluctuations. The blue stone also perfectly supports the rain. So you don’t have to worry about water congestion on your bluestone terrace.
The frost does not damage the bluestone either. The blue stone terrace can then be exposed to frost as much as necessary without losing its colors.
Since blue stone is very resistant, abrasion and compression have no effect on it. Despite the stains and bad weather, your bluestone terrace will always retain its elegance over the years. You can therefore rely on your bluestone terrace to have a long service life.
Choosing bluestone to cover your terrace is therefore a long-term investment. In the foreseeable future, you will not have to make any further expenses for building a terrace. Like a good wine, the blue stone terrace improves over time.
Caring for bluestones differs depending on the time of year and the degree of soiling, but is generally very simple. All you have to do is use plain water to liven up your blue stone patio. In the spring you can add a small amount of bleach to plain water so that you can clean your bluestone terrace.
If you discover grease stains on your bluestone patio, combine detergents with clean water to make them go away. You don’t have to hire a cleaning service to look after your terrace. You can do it very well on your own and it will save you money too.
The decision to use bluestone as a terrace surface has several advantages. This implies an elegant, resistant, durable and easy-care terrace.
