What state or area did you do this?
I have a 1950's house with a brick patio with an older aluminum roof. I want to redo the total back patio along with a side area with a firepit. I am limited to a raised deck due to encroaching roots from a 100 year old red leaf maple that is affecting some of the outlying brick
