What specifically do you want to know?!

Its perfectly OK to deck over the patio, and if the latter is sound ad very solid you can use it to your advantage.

Always be aware of you damp proof level if attaching to your house though and slope away from the house too (I think it is recommended 1:100 gradient).

If you are in the North West I know a good supplier who will talk you through the process. Let me know if so and I'll pm details.
