In Response To: Porch Post Replacement (burke)

If you live in an area where the ground freezes the pavers will continue to settle. If you're going to deck over the thing I'd go with the piers placed well below the frost line. My Father-in-law built a small house in Maine on piers. Years later he had to have a cran lift it up so he could put a foundation under it. Be like the man in the bible who built his house on solid rock and when the storms came, it stood.
