Our Flagstone Installation Procedures 

Flagstone is a popular alternative to interlocking pavers because it provides a durable and naturally slip-resistant surface that will last for years. 

You can use flagstone to create informal or formal patios, pathways, and porches around your house arena.  For a more natural and organic look, select the random cut or irregular flagstones. To keep an exceeding formal look, select the square-cut flagstone tiles (corners are always 90 degrees). You can install it in various repeating patterns.

There are some appraisal benefits in using flagstone:

Uniqueness

Each of the randomly cut flagstone as each piece is different, which means each space will also be different.

Durability

Besides the premium look of flagstone, it is also very durable as it is a natural stone.

Low maintenance

It requires a reasonable and budget-friendly cost to get going with the maintenance track of flagstone.

Permeable

This is certainly true with random cut flagstone as the material between the tiles can be with high-performance bedding or even plant material such as moss or turf.  

Here is the procedure for how we keep the standard in laying flagstone:

Game Of Stone Ca prioritizes making a well-prepared sub-base and base while building flagstone walkways and driveways. That simple technique bears our success rate constantly high. We prefer to take the whole day just preparing a stable and properly leveled foundation following this procedure:

First Of all, We start by excavating a minimum portion beyond the desired finish grade and creating a minimum of 3% slope away from structures.

After that, we check out the sub-base (the area beyond the excavated portion). If the sub-base remains wet, we will substitute 3-8” of it with crushed stone; and if the sub-base is rather dry, 2” of it will be replaced by angular sand.

Next, we add and rake 2-4” of the aggregate base material until flatten. And afterward, we compact the base and remove any remaining undulations.

When the base is ready, we install plastic edging, which will restrain the flagstones. 

Right after installing plastic edging, we start pouring concrete and using shovels and other tools to ensure no voids and screed and smooth the surface. 

Upon the base being dried, we begin laying flagstone individually by applying small amounts of wet concrete under each piece. The remaining work is to fill up the joints with the same wet concrete, and the job is complete. 

We follow the same procedure when installing a flagstone walkway, patio, driveway, or landing area. Usually, it takes us 3 days to fully install a 400 sq. ft. flagstone patio.
