Flagstone Installation Vaughan
Depending on the specific needs of the customer and other factors, Action Home Services will find the best method of installation of the flagstone. The flagstone or natural stone may be installed on top of the screening or concrete base. In both situations, the sub base has to be prepared in a similar way as preparing the base for the interlocking pavers. The soil has to be excavated by at least 6 inches or more depending on the type of soil. Then hard rock and screening material have to be added. After this, concrete is formed and paved. Once the concrete cures, flagstone could be installed. It is important to add some cement underneath each flagstone to make sure that the flagstone can stick to the concrete. Finally, gaps between flagstone need to be filled with cement or polymeric sand.
Different Natural Stones
There are a lot of different shapes and colours of flagstone, however the most popular ones are random flagstone and calibrated & cut flagstones from Banas Stone. Each of these flagstones has its own positive and negative sides. For instance, random flagstone is relatively cheap, and it is sold by weight. Also, it has a variety of different colours which you will not find from other companies. The interesting fact about random flagstone is that it is almost impossible to find two stone of the same colour. On the other hand, calibrated stones are easier to install and have square or rectangle shapes. Besides, you will be able to find two stone of the same or very similar colour, so it is easier to match it to your house colour. Both of these stone looks great, so every homeowner has to choose the flagstone which suits their needs the most.
