How to create pitch/slope in a cured cement slab??
We have always had a problem with water pooling at the bottom of the front stairway (entry to our home) after it rains. Sometimes, 2-4 inches. My husband tried to fix it by pouring a slab and adding a French drainage system. Unfortunately, I think he forgot to make a pitch or slope in it. The problem is worse now with water accumulating at least 1/4 of the way down the sidewalk as well. There is no way to enter the house now when it rains except through the garage. To make the matter worse, our house is sloped somewhat down from street level .
