HELP! Concrete Pad NOT level


I had to have a concrete pad removed a second time (see previous post: Concrete Pad)

They poured the third pad last night. I told them one side of the pad sloped into the garage but they said not to worry.

Went to wet down the pad this morning and guess what - the water came streaming into the garage! The area that slopes into the garage is about 10' x 3.5' so it's not a big area.

What can they (I) do?

Q1: Would a 'patching compound' be exceptable? I would think a thin layer of 1/8" to a 1/4" could be blended to the garage side of the pad.
Q2: Do I demand they re-do again!?!

HELP! Concrete Pad NOT level


My Q2 was do I demand that they tear out the pad and re-pour a new hopefully level one?

Go with response 2. If you're able, demand that you or someone of your choosing inspect the form work before pour. It's not that big of an area to run a level around and verify which way the water will flow....

Oh and by the way...Ron is right.
