    Post Repairing Blue Stone Patio set in Concrete

    The previous owners of our home had added a blue stone patio but the landscaper set it in cement. Through the last few years some of the stones have either cracked or come loose to where I can pull them up. Now with the added issue of the patio settling I think I'm at a point where the patio has to be redone. I would like to salvage as much of the blue stone as I can, but I'm finding it difficult as the cement edges are making it tough to loosen the stone. I would love any suggestions to help me free the stone. Right now I am using a mortar chisel and hammer and not getting very far. Otherwise, it looks like I'm just going to have to lose the blue stone and rip it all out.

    Saving old materials, from lumber to stone, is great, if it pencils out, IMHO. Besides materials, there is labor and there is time. I don't know about your labor or time, but mine has never been free.

    And even if your labor was free and you manged to salvage 50% of your stones, and then end up buying 50% new stones to complete the job - will the stones match?

    I would just demolish and remove the old stones, then start anew.
