concrete path - remove or cover up with new slabs?

United Kingdom Gb

we're about to lay some slaps around an existing concrete path which is a little 'ugly' but we're bought some slabs and now wondering if we should cover the old stuff or have it removed?



Doesn't this depend on whether laying slabs on top of the concrete will raise the level too high - and look right? My husband recently laid a new brick path and took away thr old concrete slabs so that he could lay the base flat. It made a much better finish to the job. I know it's a lot of work, but consider what you want the end result to look like before you decide.

Is the path next to the house? Consider the hight of the new path in relation to your airbricks.
