I had a stamped concrete patio put in our backyard and it has already cracked in two places in just 3 weeks. The contractor was an idiot and a jerk and put the expansion joints in the wrong places. The stamp is also done improperly and looks somewhat unsightly.
I want to know if I can put pavers on top of the stamped concrete. Also if I do, should I set them with mortar or should I use sand. I will have to use thin pavers ~1" thick since the concrete comes up to the patio door on the house. I was also thinking of putting slate tiles since it would be a thinner material, but I guess I would have to seal it fairly often. Any advice would be really helpful.
