Pennsylvania flagstoneIn the long run, proper installation affects how safe, durable and attractive your stone patio will be more than any other factor. For this reason, be sure to get it right — even if it costs more upfront or the patio takes longer to install. Typical project length: Once you receive a permit, installation times vary from about a week to multiple weeks, based on the complexity of the project and site, type of stone and installation (dry-laid or wet-laid) and size of the patio. Wet-laid stone patios and projects that require grading or drainage will take longer than sites with fewer challenges. Likewise, patios constructed of irregular stones that require fitting together will take longer than those made of uniform cut stone or precast pavers.Best time to start: Stone patios should be laid during the dry season, when they can be installed start to finish on dry soil and when the ground is not frozen. The same conditions apply for installing wet-laid stone patios. Additionally, wet-laid stone patios should be installed in relatively warm weather to speed up concrete drying.
