my front porch low in the middle

I have a small front porch, 4x8 ft. concrete.
My problem is that the center area is lower than the rest causing water to settle. It's approx. 1/8 " lower, maybe a little less. I would like to know if there is a process to level the porch without replacing it.

Any & all feedback would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

There is some sort of leveling compound you can use for concrete. I don't know more, but someone will be along to cover it in detail for you.

As chifte mentioned there are products available but costs do vary. There's a couple of products available for what you are looking for at Home Depot

One is Vinyl Concrete Patch by Quikrete to be used with a Concrete Bonding Adhesive to ensure a sound adhesion. This can be feathered. Cost is about $10.00

The other which I am not sure of it's exact name but is located in same area of store is about $22.00 - I beleive this has fiber reinforcement added to it.

Hope this helps!
