Fairfax contractor almost always installs their flagstone and Slate patios on a 4-inch concrete base. Exceptionally, in rare exceptions, we will install square cut flagstone on a base of 21 A. Specifically, dry set flagstone patios are commonly installed within the city limits of Vienna, Virginia, due to the city’s strict lot coverage policies. Initially, the first step in the flagstone patio installation process involves removing any soil, existing patio, or deck from the area designated for your new patio.
Following that, as soon as we grade your lot to the required levels, we’ll begin the installation process. At this point, Fairfax Contractor will take your approved patio plans and spray paint them out into your yard. Subsequently, the next step in installing your flagstone patio involves excavating for any stair system you may need for exiting your house to your new patio. Upon completing the excavation of your patio stair system, local building officials will need to inspect it.
After we have passed the footing inspection, we will form up your patio with a combination of flexible lumber and 2″x4″ boards to create the form of your patio builders for your approval. Once approved, we will tamp the soil and pour a reinforced concrete slab. The reinforcement utilized for most flagstone patio bases is residential fiber. Lastly, once we lay the concrete for your flagstone patio, we will begin veneering the concrete base with your pre-selected flagstone choice. Most often, a combination of Portland cement, fine masonry sand, and water will create the bonding agent to lay the flagstone onto your patio.
