A common scenario is a home with a small concrete patio or slab that a homeowner wants to extend and add a patio. The question we get asked all of the time is can you build over the existing slab or does it need to be removed?

The answer most of the time is yes that the existing slab is actually a great foundation for the new pavers. You can also incorporate Travertine or even flagstone on existing concrete.

The only times you would not keep the existing concrete is when you have a challenge with the grade or the threshold of the house door is too low to accommodate both the existing slab and the additional height of the patio material.
