Can you concrete over concrete?
Subsequently, one may also ask, is it OK to pour concrete over existing concrete?

Subsequently, question is, can you pour concrete over dirt? Pour concrete over a solid, well-drained base Because concrete slabs “float” on the soil, soft ground or voids underneath may cause unsupported areas to crack under heavy weight like vehicles. Pack about 4 in. of sand or gravel over clay and other poorly draining soils to provide even support.
Subsequently, one may also ask, how thick does a concrete overlay have to be?
The minimum recommended thickness is 1 to 2 in. (25 to 50 mm) for a fully bonded concrete overlay placed on a base slab that is practically free of cracks and in which the concrete is sound, clean, and of good quality.
Does concrete resurfacing last?
