Concrete patio cracks

Because my concrete patio has developed several cracks over the past 20 years, I wanted to have a deck built over the patio raising the deck by 6-8" above the existing patio. Any problems doing that! My current patio is 25'wx20d...not sure of the cost?

You will have to make sure you have adequate air circulation between the deck and the patio slab (if it left in place) or the soil if it is removed.

Welcome to the forum Leighrich.

Letting us know what “6-8&quot” is would help.

Posting pictures would be even better yet.

Is this an wxposded deck?
How close to any door openings would this make the deck?

Very vague post. No real information provided, in order for anyone here to offer any help.
