    Can you install pavers or stone on top of a existing concrete walk? or would it be better to tear out and start from scratch. The walk way is fairly new in great shape and has no cracks etc. That is why I ask. I'm just looking to dress it up with minimal work. The work is to be done in NC if that matters.

    If not are there any other methods to make a plain grey concrete walk... look better.

    Yes you can lay on top but what will you do when you reach the ends and you're about 3" taller? Is that going to be an issue? First step will be shorter and the driveway will not meet up......assuming its in front of the house.

    Go to a Benjamin Moore......they have stains you can put on concrete if thats an option for you.

    You can put pavers or flagstone or etc. on an existing side walk. We will cut the ends off and replace with gravel and sand. Cut back far enough to allow for a gradual grade change to realign.
