Covering Existing Patio


Hi All,

I have an existing concrete patio (plain slab), that had been painted at one point, but it is really in need of some modernization!

Wondering what the best cost-effective options are for giving the patio new life?

Stones? Tile? Pouring concrete over the existing concrete (love the stamped concrete look)?

It's fairly large in size (nearly 1000 square feet). I was hoping to be in the $2,000 range, but that may simply not be feasible.

Would love to hear recommendations!

Thanks,
Todd

Cant stick tile on a painted surface. Maybe lay pavers or bust it all out and start over.
