REcapping Cement Patio? Is there such a thing?

OK, I haveconcrete work I need to do. But I am not going to do it. (know NOTHING about concrete which is why I am here) Sidewalk in front of house MUST be removed and replaced. Walkway from sidewalk up to the patio in back is in GOOD shape BUT slopes towards house (has been this way as long as I can remember, but NO water issues in house), back patio is up down all over the place. IS it possible to have the back patio "Capped"? Meaning pour enough concrete over top of it to level it all out.

As I said I am not going to do the work but would like the info so when talking to someone about it I know what I am talking about and won't get screwed.

Thank You

we use a proprietary polymer-modified conc mix but there are other mixes avail from any const supply house,,, you could also use an 2", 3", or 4" unbonded conc overlay but this takes a bit more skill & knowledge of how conc reacts while curing.

we wouldn't use any apron store materials because we guarantee our work
