Freeze Thaw question -Great Video Guys

I recently purchased and watched your video laying flagstone Patios. I own a small landscape company in the St. Louis area and I am looking to start a few of these flagstone patios. I think I am going to try my first patio at my own home. After viewing your website I found you are much more knowledgeable than any other source. I like things done properly so I have done my homework on proper flagstone patio installation. I am very confident I can do a good job but I have one question. What about freeze/Thaw cycles? I know sealing the stone and getting proper fall on the patio are the keys to keeping the stone from popping off or cracking, but is that always enough? In St. Louis winter can be very taxing on our landscapes.
Thanks for taking my questions and thank you for making such an excellent video.
