zedosix, why wouldn't you try it up there? I gets just as cold here as it does there? The drains are connected and go to daylight, but I didn't do it, the landscaper did.
This job was done for a Kiewitt guy that is a civil engineer that specializes in concrete. If done right, anything can be done in concrete! I'll take on any challenge.

I guess the biggest problem in our area is not just frost but a heavy clay subsoil. If the drainage is not properly attended to that concrete slab will move and crack the first year. I guess I'm just afraid to have to go back in and cango the whole bloody thing apart. Brick is just safer in my opinion.

We have clay here also. I pour on top of 2-4 inches of compacted recycled concrete, have #4 rebar 2' on center each way, and have proper expansion and control joints. Last year I had pool decks heave an inch and a half and no cracking.
