That is not level pick up one end until the bubble is right dead centre between the two lines, that buddy, is the slope we wanted.
Hello here is a pic of what i am gonna start or is the slope to high. I know it is above the line level i took. Or should i drop the back piece more to the slab to get it even in hight. I just want to make sure the run off does not go into my foundation

Set your level right next to that board and take a picture of the bubble.

The most you need is 1/2 inch slope from the wall to the concrete.

Re: Advice for setting ip slab of concrete


I think your line is above the height of the deck like in picture 1. and you would just do concrete to that line.



If you want more slope just raise the line on the wall but taper the ends down so you are not creating a tripping hazard.
See in picture 2, the slope just changes for a few feet at the end.
