One of the biggest differences in flagstone and paver patterns lies in their journey from raw to final product. Both these flooring materials have undergone totally different production processes to give the final output. Talking about the flagstone, it is directly comes from the natural quarries. No fabrication or machine work is done to form the flagstone. That’s why it was also popular with the name quarry cut paving stone. On the other hand, the production process of the paver pattern is entirely opposite. A big stone block was first to cut into various dimensions with the help of a machine.
