Patio. Wednesday , July 12th , 2017 - 22:41:16 PM
One of the more expensive things you can do is add a small outdoor fireplace to your patio. Do some comparison-shopping to see what you can get for what price: outdoor fireplaces can be huge or they can be small and portable. Adding a fireplace to your patio will encourage family and guests to hang out outside a little bit longer. Picture it now: the air outside is cold, but you and your family and friends are all bundled up and roasting marshmallows by the fireside. Yum! What a fun way to spend a cold winter's night!
So, what is the solution? 1.The contractor can assume there will be waste on the job and only use the best shaped pieces, ordering extra. This should be figured into the costs. 2.The pieces of bluestone can be saw cut to make them perfectly straight, also an extra cost due to the time involved. 3.Let your contractor know you are aware of this problem and that you expect a good job regarding this situation.
Most of the time, they are not square. Look at a bluestone patio, and stand at one end and look at the lines of the joints. They should be straight and even. Yet because bluestone is not always cut properly at the quarry, the pieces are not exactly straight. If used as is, your joint lines will not be straight either.
