Just so, can you pour concrete over brick patio?
Pour the concrete over the brick patio and to the edges of the form surrounding the brick surface, filling the form to the top. Spray the concrete with concrete sealer, then wait 72 hours more before using the new concrete patio.
Similarly, can you lay paving slabs without cement? Although building your patio over a concrete slab helps to ensure it won't settle unevenly later, you can build a patio without cement. By laying flagstone, tile, brick or other sturdy, flat pavers on a well-prepared base, your patio will be less expensive and more water-permeable.
Subsequently, one may also ask, can you tile over paving slabs?
When tiling a floor the surface needs to be secure and firm. Only way to do it right would be to pull up the pavers and lay a slab then tile. As above – the issue is not the weight, it is that the pavers will move about, causing the tiles to either crack or come loose (even if you use a flexible tile adhesive).
What is poor man's concrete?
We have a few companies locally that offer "poor man's concrete". I'm not sure exactly what it is, but I've seen it in driveways and such. It's a white powdery material they dump and flatten out and when it gets wet, it's supposed to harden like cement.
