We have a 3 1/2" concrete slab under the area we want to put a deck. The slab is in good condition. Would we need to eliminate the concrete patio, or can we attach the 4X4 posts to the surface? What would we use to attach them? We live in northern Ohio.

No problem leaving the slab in place. Use a Simpson AB44 post base to attach the 4X4's to the slab. This will hold the wood an inch off of the concrete, so it won't absorb water and rot. The post base can be attached to the condrete with 2" drive pin anchors or small redheads.
