Concrete Patio & Maple Roots

We have a large silver maple that has many surface roots in the backyard. We are planning on ripping out our old, small concrete patio and replacing it with a new larger one.

How close to the surface roots can we get? Also, can we prevent the underground roots from heaving through the concrete in the future?

Any suggestions for other patio materials that would work better around maple roots is appreciated as well.

Thanks!
