concrete patio


Hello,
I am new to the forum. I was doing some DIY projects and came across this site. I am loving all the information on the site so far!

I moved into my house in Jan. The owners before me attempted to poor an additional concrete slab for the patio. They failed on this attempt. Anyone have ideas on a easy fix for this without busting everything up and starting over. I will post some photos in a minute

No easy fix for that,do yourself a favor and tear out and repour if you want concrete,or a bit pricey and a little more work but pavers would be my choice.

Looks like a "how hard could it be?" moment. Yeah, that "slab" has got to go. I'd go with some concrete that is colored and stamped. It'll cost more, and its not a DIY thing, but you'll be happier in the long run.

concrete patio


The concrete patio though finished horribly does not appear to be cracking, heaving, or sinking.

It looks like they did a really bad job of finishing it.

Depending on the height of the door sill that leads out to the patio and some other factors, I am not so sure that going right over the top with a new system would be out of the question.
