Any ideas, rather proper construction, on this problem I am going to incur building my own paver patio. Currently there is an extension of the roof (kind of like a solid awning, wood, shingles, etc..) over a current cracked and sinking concrete patio that will be removed. In terms of support for that roof, should the posts rest on the pavers or should a seperate footing be creating to support the roof/awning? The roof covers an approximate 10' x 10' area. The patio will extend much beyond this area. Any suggestions would be appreciated!
