Hi

I am planning on laying stone flags to an existing patio area to replace existing concrete flags.

Would you ever consider laying over the top ?

The existing concrete flags have been down 30 years and there is no recent movement.
The existing concrete flags are in good condition with no cracking.
There isn't a problem raising the patio height
The existing flags are in pretty good condition and generally flat.

Thanks in advance

Whilst it might seem an easy way to go, you know in your heart that the right way to do it is to pull up the existing and re-compact with some type 1 and lay the new on a fresh substrate. :thumbright:
