Standing water on concrete patio


My original patio has been extended. After the first rain, I noticed a large puddle of water on the patio. How can I correct this problem?

Standing water on concrete patio


Is it solid concrete ? Not concrete blocks ?
If its the add-on it sounds like they didn't slope it correctly

Standing water on concrete patio


Is there any way to correct the grade without having to redo the whole patio. Most of the work was done by me with the help of a couple of friends. I really do not have the money to start completely over. Is there a way fill in the area that is sunken?

A picture would help
But basically if the grade is wrong then part of it needs to be pulled up & regraded

Nope,.. Not really, especially if you want it to last...
Quick,+ simple way would be to grind a groove to drain it...
