I've done this, but I have questions first

In reply to how to build & secure a new deck on top of an existing porch by Mickey on August 7th, 1998 04:23 PM [Go to top of thread]


I have done this exact thing before, but before I go into an explanation, I have some questions:

Will (can) the new porch floor be higher than the top of the existing concrete?
If so, by how much can you raise it?
Are you planning to support a roof or other structure over the entire new porch?
Do you live in a climate that receives snowfall?
How old is the existing concrete?
Does the existing concrete have a footing, or can you tell how deep the concrete goes?

Regards - TomR
