I live in the southeast and have a concrete patio that extends into a concrete floored screened in porch. The concrete has cracked in several places. The house is 10 years old and the concrete has several large cracks in both the screened area and the patio.

I would like to cover the concrete with a material such as tiles or slate. Can I cover a cracked concrete patio with tiles and/or slate? What is the best material?
