Flagstone Patio | Laying Yorkstone Flags in courses

Reclaimed Yorkstone Patio

Traditionally, Yorkstone Flags were often laid in coursed rows of an equal width with random sized lengths.  We offer a coursing service on all orders, this involves laying the flagstones out in our yard according to the customers requirements.  Flagstones are then placed onto numbered pallets and delivered with a plan. Random laying patterns are also very popular. If using this method you may need to buy approximately 10% extra to account for wastage (cuts).

Preparing the flags this way can be very useful and will increase efficiency on site once they have been delivered.  A previous customer commented on this service “There is a great benefit in seeing the floor laid out in it’s entirety before it is brought to site.  Secondly, with the flags cut to your actual plan there is no wastage, so you’re not paying for something you will not use.  Finally, with the stone being cut to a uniform depth it is easier to manhandle & being cut to plan it is quicker & more cost effective to lay”

We have just received some photographs of the finished project…

Reclaimed Stone Floor laid in Lancashire Edwardian Terrace

tone Flooring laid in courses

We recently supplied the stone floor in the photographs below.  Each stone floor is unique, no two flagstones are the same and that’s the beauty of it.   All reclaimed flagstones were supplied calibrated to a depth of 35 mm for optimum use with the underfloor heating system.

When we supply an internal bespoke coursed floor none of the reclaimed flags are sandblasted.  Each flag is carefully hand cleaned using techniques we have spent years researching to ensure the flags retain their natural foot worn patina.

If you are planning to lay the stone in a random pattern you will need to order extra (approximately 10% for wastage).  Traditionally stone floors were laid in courses of an equal width with random lengths.   We offer a bespoke coursing service and will lay the floor out in our yard to fit room dimensions.  This saves lots of time and expense on site and means you don’t have to order extra for wastage.  Flagstones are dispatched with a detailed plan for laying on numbered pallets.

Yorkstone flags are extremely durable and will last forever but a good sealer will make the stone less porous and more stain resistant.  Use a colour enhancing or wet look sealer for a more dramatic look.  To protect the stone without changing the appearance use a matte look sealer.   Buy a range of sealers to try on off cuts before committing to the entire floor.
