toilet flange broke..

new member here so my first ? is a bit complicated?
pulled off the old toliet and the wax ring crumbled as did most of the original flange including bolts
Solution= new flange/ superflange ontop of the old one and seal it.
the new flange on top of th old flange doesn't sit flush with the floor.. possible problem? how do i solve it?

Also to screw in the new superflange requires cutting into tile and concrete.. ... no problem with tapcon screws and a bit.

however the concrete doesnt meet flush with the original flange. there is a 1/2" gap to 3/4" inch gap around the pipe. I could drill the superflange in but it migh "break" off concrete and i'm stuck with no real anchor..

are the superflanges wiht wider bases? but then i'd stll have the problem of the new flange sittingin top of the old flange and not beign flush with the floor(cant raise the floor house is 90 years old and I aint touching it.)
help... befor ei cal the plumber ask for a free estimate and then do it myself incorrectly so i save money.

Thumbs up

I'd call the plumber for the free estimate and then do the work he was going to do to save $$$!
