In reply to Decking over concrete patio by David S. on June 22nd, 2001 10:14 AM [Go to top of thread]

There were some messages on 6/18 that might help.

I would use 2x4 sleepers 16" on center, either on edge or flat and shim under them where the deck is low. Then you just deck on top of it so you end up with a very thin framed deck sitting right on the patio. Or, if the entire outer edge is irregular then you could support the sleepers with an "edge band" of framing. This could be set in place in the dirt outside the irregular edge or set on the irregular edge, level on top and the bottom scribed to the irregular patio.
