I am considering putting in a brick paver patio. Already have a cracked concrete patio already 25 years old. Would it be better to tear the old up and then lay the pavers, or can I just lay the pavers over the concrete with a good layer of sand between pavers and the concrete? Any suggestions would help.

If you haven't done it already, it is the great way to lay pavers. Add some sand or paver base to low spots created by the cracks in the concrete. They don't sink when sitting on concrete.

I did this to a 12 x 12 patio that wasn't cracked, just to raise the grade near the house. It beat the heck out of tearing out the concrete and messing with lots and lots of paver base.
