Question

Garage door area rain water backing up issue


Hi all, thanks for lending me your helping hands again...

Here is a photo.

(click on these pictures to zoom in)

As you can see, at our garage door area, every time when it's raining, there will be a big puddle forming, as the water can NOT effectively go into the drain. It gets worse if there are some leaves blocking the drain. Is there any good solution to solve this problem? Many thanks!

You have the perfect storm to make sure you get the max. amount of water into that garage.
That driveway needs to be regraded and or a trench drain sysem installed that goes across the whole lenght of the aprin.

That drain you have now is all but useless.

cut a floor train inside the garage and tie into the one that is not getting any water.

That's a great idea to saw cut it and trench drain it. Thanks guys! By the way, what type of concrete saw or tools do I need to do that, and would I be able to rent such tools from local home center (in case they are expensive to buy them)? Thanks!

Rent to small a hammer and you'll be there all day trying to break out the center of the two cuts.
