Patio cover up ideas
 
My back patio slab is 30x11 feet. The concrete has extensive cracks and is uneven. Breaking all this concrete is going to be my absolute last resort. I have the "walk maker" I was going to make a little walk way through my garden. To use this to cover the patio would be -165 molds.... 165 bags of concrete. Then unlocked into 16x16 inch pavers. This would mean I would need about 248 pavers to cove the patio... I was going to do this ten level it with mortar. This seems like it is going to be a costly project. Does anyone have any other ideas of what I can do? From the slab to the door is 8-10 inches.

Post a picture.

The best way is to cut up and get rid of that old patio and start over.

99% of the time a slab fails because of poor prep work.
