Dips on Concrete Patio

Hello All,

I am trying to tackle a water puddling problem on my concrete patio. Except a few hairline cracks the concrete pad is in great condition (55 years). The pad has a slight bow/dip at a few places and that leads to water puddling. I was planning on using Quikrete Vinyl Concrete Patcher to take care of these slight dips and in the process give it a slight slope (away from the house).

As per the Spec Data sheet the Patcher bonds to existing Concrete that is in good condition. Would appreciate any suggestions, alternate solutions etc for this. Thanks.

/S

Depending where you live (climate), you may run into bonding and durability problems down the road.

If you use vinyl patch only in the dips, your slab will end up looking like an old slab with a lot of blobs of newer, dark concrete on top of it (The vinyl patch is very dark). If you patch the dips, I would go over the whole thing with something like Quikrete Resurfacer too. This will make the whole slab look the same. I think you could use the resurfacer to fill the dips too.
Make sure to follow all directions to a "T", especially those involving surface prep and mixing. Good luck.
