:(I am needing some advice on some different ways to fix a sloping concrete pad. And yes it does slope back toward the house:furious:, causing water to leak in the basement around the perimeter of the floor. I have though about grinding the outside edge down to where the water would run away from the house and then seal and lay paver bricks over top. Not sure if this would work. Any and all ideas would be appreciated. Thanks to all in advance.

concrete patio

It is a 12' X 46' and it is up against the front of the house. It slopes back toward the house about an inch to inch and a half in ten feet. We have not put a roof over it yet, so it is open. :huh:

You may be a candidate for "mud-jacking" or "slab-jacking", depending on how you name it in your part of the country.

Either way you call it, it is a service that lifts slabs by injecting grout, or cement, underneath the slab thus lifting it hydraulically. they drill 3/4" holes into the slab fro above, attach a truck-mounted pump to a hose and then watch the whole slab rise to where you want it. Cost effective against new slab, but it is comparable to repours...a lot of factors go into it, but it wouldn't hurt to have a company quote on that to tell you those options may be.
