Pennsylvania Flagstone is probably the most-used flagstone in the Northern Virginia area. Be it a flagstone patio or brick patios or walk way they are all built to Crescent ’s specific time tested designs. The first step in how to build a flagstone patio project is to design the grade and shape of the patio. The area must be graded so the water flows away from your property. Our masonry teams are trained to produce a grade of ¼” per foot. This grade makes the patio look fairly level but will move the water away from your home without a problem We then remove all grass and prep the area for our concrete pour. Any down spouts or sump pump out lets are attached to a new drayage system below your patio or walk way. WE never install a gravel base because this will only hold water because of the soil conditions in northern Virginia. When the forms have been approved by the home owner we pour 3500 psi concrete. This concrete pour may be reinforced with fiber, wire mesh or rebar depending on the local soil types. The patio or walkway is then capped with Pennsylvania square cut irrigator flagstone, brick pavers or material of your choice. Some home owners like to add a brick edge to their project. We set our flagstone in a mixture of type 1 or 2 Portland cement and fine masonry sand. If your patio or walk way project is to be capped in brick we would then use type S masonry cement and sand mixture. We also build patio fire pits, outdoor kitchens, built in barbecues, refrigerators, grills, and outdoor chimneys. Outdoor kitchens have been very big this year along with our outdoor chimneys. Lighted thin stone seating walls are used in many of our patio projects. If your outdoor plans include patio work why not add a fire-pit or outdoor chimney.
