a do it yourselfer

I purchased your video and i'm anxious to get started. I have an existing flagstone patio that has seen better days. I was able to remove all of the stone and i'm left with the old foundation which seems to be in pretty good condition. With a little effort i could chip away the remaining concrete ridges for a workable surface. i could also pour a layer of concrete over the existing surface for a perfectly smooth foundation. What are your recommendations? I am working with a patio in excess of 200 square feet and would rather not tear up the old foundation.

Dear Richard,

I think you should be able to lay right over your existing concrete. Unless it's cracking everywhere, you should be fine.

Great luck!
