We used to have an small cement "deck" about 5 ft x 6 ft with stairs from
our back door.
We replaced this with a pressure treated deck that is 10 ft by 24 ft. the
concrete stairs were removed but the cement patio or landinf that the stairs
sat on remained(in fear of disturbing foundation.
Well, with heavier rain, we now have water puddle up about 2 or 3 inches
deep by our basement door where the bottom step of the wood deck is located.
It does look like the grading of the cement walkway that run along our house
by this are may be level or slightly down towards our house.
1) Can I just simply lay new concrete over this are near my backdoor to
change the grade and help water flow away?
2) Do I have to break up the old walkway and put in the newly graded one?
2 is most likely, correct?
