Cutting a Concrete Patio


Had a patio installed about a week ago. Evidential the wood used to frame it in was warped so the patio is uneven. Was looking at masonry saws to even it out but am worried it would chip the concrete and make it worse than it is now. Will a masonry saw cut a nice clean edge and if so how long should I wait before attempting this?

call your guy back & have him saw an edge,,, 4" grinder'll do that part OR buy some landscaping,,, hasta works wonders probably already paid the total bill, right ?

since its diamond blades that cut, wait another 3 wks,,, you'll also need to round off the edge corner ( aris ) OR expect chipping just from normal use,,, if you knew as much as jomama, you'd do it tomorrow

Actually, I think you meant "yesterday"..........

I'd agree with your first advise though, call the people you paid to do the job first.
