How to Install a Flag Pole Mount on an Awesome Stone Surface

Generally speaking, a flag pole mount is pretty easy to install.  It is a little more difficult to install a flag pole mount on stone.  The wind can be very fierce and I didn’t want to drill into the stone, damage the stone, and then for the flag pole to not hold properly in the stone pillar.  Maybe I worry too much but I didn’t want to damage the house.

Directions:  How to Install a Flag Pole Mount on an Awesome Stone Surface

Materials:

  • Small Board (I used a piece of redwood fence board)
  • Screws
  • Flag Mount Kit
  • Saw
  • Level

Installation

My answer was to cut a board, install the board, and then install the flag pole mount on the board.  Easy peasy with my battery operated circular saw.  You know how I love my battery operated drills and circular saw.  Once cut, I installed the board on the stone pillar using screws and a level to make sure the board was straight on the pillar.

I used a small piece of redwood fence board as stated in the materials list.  I used my wonderful battery operated circular saw to cut off  the four corners of the board to make it look cute.  Sure I think boards can actually look cute bare naked without paint or stain.  Once cut, I installed the board on the stone pillar using screws and a level to make sure the board was straight on the pillar.

In conclusion, I installed the new flag pole mount on the redwood board.  I placed a flag on the flag pole and placed it in the new mount. My mission is complete and my tools have serviced me well.

I love the clean look and I really hate to see something directly installed into the stucco which can be damaged the wall of the house like I said in the introduction paragraph.
