Question rain pooling on concrete patio!!

Hi,

I have a solid concrete patio 12 by 12 that was poured so that rain would run off the two corners not attached to the house. THEN we put a screened enclosure on it and now the water just pools in those corners and is a pain in the neck to squeegee out. We live where it rains often!

Can I re-slope the patio to run off the center of the far edge, where the door out is?

Thank you!!! The patio was painted but that was over nine years ago. Would that make a difference?

Drill holes or cut some slots in the corners to let the water flow.
