Ballpark number, $4-5/SF assuming decent access - $1-2/SF more if existing heavily reinforced rather than just wire mesh, needs substantial subgrade rework to support concrete properly, or hand wheelbarrowing rather than direct bobcat or equal and truck access to remove old material and bring in new concrete. This does not include extreme hot or cold weather placement - so basically 45-90 degree conditions assumed.


I would be considering WHY the oldneeds to be replaced unless you are doing something fancy like concrete stamping or such - if broken up, consider mix changes, subgrade improvement, or stopping using destructive type of icemelt which may have causes damage in first place. Basically, a concrete patio or sidewalk should last about 20-30 years in places with severe winters (lots of freezing and thawing) or near salt water, and 40-60 years in milder climates before it starts breaking up.
