I have a patio composed of large concrete pavers (roughly 2' x 6') (edit - more likely sections of poured concrete) - I would guess it is at least 10 years old if not much older. My second story deck is supported by posts on precast concrete footings which sit on the pavers. I'd like to redo the patio as the pavers are uneven and unappealing. What would be the best approach to redoing the patio without rebuilding the deck? Some potential approaches that have occurred to me:
- Pour a concrete slab over the pavers/sections of concrete slab
- Lay deck tiles over the pavers/sections of concrete slab
- Lay a fresh set of sand and pavers over the existing pavers/sections of concrete slab
- Use temporary posts to support the deck while removing and replacing the pavers/sections of concrete slab
How many of these approaches seem feasible? Are there better ones I haven't thought of?
