sunporch decking support


Heres the plan:I hve a 4.5ft x 28 ft sunporch that is adjacent and shares the roof of my lower floor of my 28ft house which sits on pillars.I want to replace the decking for two reasons,its starting to rot and it bounces.I have three or four pillars underneath each wooden beam which is supporting the decking(2x6s).I want to replace the decking with stone slabs which are aprox 1-2ftw x3-4"thick x4.5ft long.So iam looking for advice on what would be the best way to support the stones and their weight.
