I hope this is in the right forum, if not, I apologize...but here goes... On the front of my house, I have a cement step leading to my front door. I am planning on put a deck type step, using composite materials instead of the cement step. I am wondering If I need to remove the old cement step, or can I build right over it? Also, if I have to remove it, what is the easiest/best way to remove it? I am worried about damaging the foundation of my house while removing the old cement step. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. When i get home tonight, I will take some pictures of the step, which will maybe better help you understand what I am talking about. Thanks!
