Fairfax contractor almost always installs their flagstone and Slate patios on a 4-inch concrete base. In rare exceptions, we will install square cut flagstone on a base of 21 A. Typically these dry set flagstone patios are installed in the Virginia city limits of Vienna because of their strict lot coverage policies. The 1st step in installing a flagstone patio is to remove any soil, existing patio, or deck in the area to be utilized for your new patio plan.
Once your lot has been graded to the necessary levels, we will start the installation process. Fairfax Contractor will take your approved patio plans and spray paint them out into your yard. The next step in installing your flagstone patio is to excavate for any stairs system that may be required to egress from your house to your new patio. After excavation of your patio stair system is complete, it will be needed to be inspected by local building officials.
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. Once the concrete has been laid for your flagstone patio, we will start to veneer 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.
