Laying flagstone over slate

We bought a house with a mismatched patio. Part of it is slate and part is flagstone. We like the flagstone best. Is it possible to lay flagstone over slate? sballard

What is under the slate?Will it hold up to the extra weight?Is the slate in good condition?Sorry,I always have more questions than answers.

The slate was laid on concrete and is grouted, and it actually is in good condition. sballard

I don't see any reason why you can't put the flagstone on top of the slate.:D
