We are going to go into slight detail regarding the difference between having a solid concrete pad under your new flagstone or brick masonry patio versus having what many companies offer as just a bed of compacted “sand” and granite sand. The correct way, speaking as master masons, is to have a concrete pad or substrate installed with a minimum thickness of 4″. This offers an extremely structurally sound base or slab which when using a 3500 psi concrete allows for a long lasting patio. When we put the flagstone, brick, etc. on top with the mortar it bonds to the concrete and becomes inseparable. We also create a slight angle of the patio (not easily seen with the naked eye) so when it rains or if you’re washing it off the water will drain accordingly. We never condone using polymeric sand for joints or substrates of sand and crushed granite. Using sand doesn’t create a solid base at all! You’re flagstone will break from the sand shifting underneath. Also the sand will washout over time from the elements. Sand and crushed granite is not a solid base like concrete by any means. What is your home on? Sand? Or a concrete pad? Imagine if your home was built on sand footings versus concrete footings.
