Caution when planning your patio:

Banas Flagstone Patio

One of the most important aspects of a patio or walkway is beneath the ground. If you are researching landscaping you probably know by now that the depth of base gravel is extremely important. What you probably don't know is that the type of sub-soil (clay, silt, sand, loam) is even more important to determining  the proper installation procedures of your new flagstone.


What is Square-Cut Flagstone?

Square-cut flagstone is stone that has been split into slices from 1/2"-3" then cut into square shapes using a large diamond tipped saw. Sometimes these stones are sent through a 'calibrator' which shaves the stone down to a specific thickness.







Flagstone and Mortar

Flagstone applied to a porch or concrete surface has to be installed with mortar. This application method is more complicated than dry laid stone. Stone surfaces must be kept clean, free of dirt and grime. Mortar will only dry and cure when above certain temperatures and joints must be packed full of mortar avoiding any air pockets.
