We are remodeling a 1998 colonial. The home was built with an uncovered front entryway and the bluestone decking deteriorated. We decided to improve the facade by adding a portico. The portico – held up by temporary supports on the old decking – was built before we could get a mason to redo the bluestone decking. Fast forward to today, the mason who is installing the new bluestone starts in two weeks. He thinks the portico contractor should install the posts and he will install the bluestone around them. The portico contractor wants to wait until the bluestone is installed and go over the top of them. Which is the right order of operations and why?
