I'm considering installing a deck over the old concrete patio pictured below.
My first thought was to lay the deck on top but because it is cracked and has shifted over the years this probably isn't a good idea.
I could place support beams around the perimeter of the patio but what is the best solution for supporting the interior? Is drilling holes through the concrete realistic?
I could have the patio removed but this would likely be far too expensive.
Thanks for the help!
