    Been there - done that!

    I would image you have a crew taking out the crete and they probably grind/recyle the old. All that money at one time being taken out.

    In my climate, i do take out a few patio's due to cracking etc. I have yet to tear out a paver patio/walk/drive due to cracking.

    Can't wait to see the 'after' pictures!

    Yeah, there are two absolutes with concrete. It is hard. It will crack. I'm sure it will look awesome when finished.

    As I read your stats for the job, I was figuring that the pattern was something simple!

    So what did you to to insure that the pattern met up properly as you made your way around the circle. Around a pool I always run a ton of lines. It doesn't look like you could run a ton of string lines on that job.

    I assume you subbed out the concrete removal/excavation. It had to be near 250 yards excavated if there is a 12 inch base.
