this corner of the patio had settled by more than 2 in. over the years. that meant a big reservoir after rainand water in the basement. so we filled the reservoir with exterior-grade self-leveling compound. after the first batch hardened, we poured on a thin coat and gave it a slight slope so water would run away from the house.
the slope of the deck is dependent on the architects choice for the depth of the stepdown and the engineers recommendation for minimum slab thickness at the balcony perimeter. the minimum recommended balcony width is 5 ft 1.5 m , with most residential balconies 5 to 7 ft 1.5 to 2 m wide.
ponding of concrete deck floors by john l. ruddy from the 3rd quarter 1986 issue references popular figure 1. figure 2. and deck forming a typical corner bay. the first quadrant of this corner bay is loaded with a uniform concrete weight equiva-lent to the load imposed by a uniform slab thickness. figure 6 depicts sche-

pool decks: puddling, drainage and slope. this slope will generally carry water off the deck area and little or no puddling will occur if the concrete finishers did a reasonable screeding and finishing job. even a 1% slope will work, but it is not as desirable as a 2% slope. basically the aim is for the water to drain off of the deck well and to not puddle.
calculate the ideal slope. the standard formula for the slope of a concrete patio is a 1/4-inch drop for every foot of length. if the slope is more gradual than this, you may run into trouble getting water to run off properly.

the recommended slope for flat roofs is usually 1% 1/8 inch per foot or 2% 1/4 inch per foot according to the professional handbook of building construction, published by john wiley and sons, new york. a 2% slope will probably ensure better drainage.we could also find no slope tolerance for use when a floor slope is specified.
pool decks: puddling, drainage and slope. a 2% slope is considered the desirable slop for a pool deck. this slope will generally carry water off the deck area and little or no puddling will occur if the concrete finishers did a reasonable screeding and finishing job. even a 1% slope will work, but it is not as desirable as a 2% slope.
so the water flow is mostly parallel to the house but slightly away -- about a 15 degree angle away. the problem is that the lowest point of the patio sits below a retaining wall and water pools up in that one corner. the patio comes out 11 feet from the house and the best drainage point is 6 feet from

some decking products with limited drainage recommend sloping the deck frame to a 1/4 vertical per 12 horizontal pitch. this slope is small enough to escape detection by the naked eye, but enough to force water away from the house.
proper drainage slope based on the international residential code is a minimum fall slope of 6' away from the foundation for the 1st 10'. proper clearance above grade to the top of foundation / bottom of exterior cladding is a minimum 4' for masonry areas with a minimum 6' clearance above grade at siding areas.
use the divided measurement as the total amount of slope for the deck in inches. a deck that projects 9 feet out from the house needs to slope 1.8 inches from the house to the farthest edge for proper drainage.
according to plumbing code, drain pipe has to be sloped a minimum of 1/4-inch per foot and a maximum of three inches per foot or vertical. a slope of less than 1/4-inch per foot will cause constant drain clogs and a slope of more than three inches will allow the water to drain without the solids. calculating the slope of your drain pipe is easy.
drainage of all of the water, even with a slope of 1/4 in. per ft 20 mm per m . in addition, there is a tolerance to the elevation of the drain, which establishes the low point of the surface as well as the slope from the specified slab surface elevation. once a slab is placed, it is also exposed to ambient conditions
add slope to concrete for drainage the seven trust community . add slope to concrete for drainage i have a large concrete patio over which a ground level deck will be installed - the patio itself is in good condition and pitched as one would expect, away from the house but also toward one end of the house.
a 2% slope will probably ensure better drainage.we could also find no slope tolerance for use when a floor slope is specified. aci 117-90, st andard specifications for tolerances for concrete construction and materials, gives a level alignment tolerance of 3/4 inch for top-of-slab elevation of slabs on grade.
i made the mistake of sloping it in 2 directions along the x and y back to front and right to left. in doing this, i didn't realize that while my slope from back to front is a subtle 2.5' and my slope from right to left is a subtle 2.5', the difference in elevation of the back right corner and the front left corner is about 5'.
dig up the pavement between the lines with a jackhammer. begin by placing the tip of the jackhammer on one of the lines, and work in toward the center. tear up about half the trench from one line, then go to the other line and tear up that side. remove the chunks of concrete as you break them up.
outline the area where you have issues with water runoff. tap stakes in the ground at the corners of the area and run string between the stakes. this is the area where you will install pavers to create a patio. dig out the soil inside the outline down to a depth equal to 6 inches plus the thickness of the pavers.
the drainage of water. these floors are complex in terms of design and construction requiring the careful selection of a suitable drainage slope percentage, drain layout, construction methodology and materials. the surface of all concrete floors are wavy in na-ture, being comprised of both hills and valleys along any line.
pre-stressed concrete roof decks consist of concrete usually precast panels that is pre-stressed using integral steel tendon reinforcement. the unit is compressed to counteract flexural bend tensile stresses which usually result in a cambered unit a slight curve that results in the centre of the unit being higher than the supporting ends .
if your patio used to drain well after a heavy rain, but now seems to collect water, you may have a clogged drainage system. over time debris can collect in the drainage channels and cause a blockage. roof overhangs and downspouts. if rainwater is flowing directly onto your patio from a roof overhang or downspout,

the standard formula for the slope of a concrete patio is a 1/4-inch drop for every foot of length. if the slope is more gradual than this, you may run into trouble getting water to run off properly. slopes that are steeper than this are fine, but you may also wish to consider the ease of mobility on a concrete patio that is too steep.
in the perfect scenario, a concrete patio is poured so that it slopes gently away from your home. this naturally directs water both away from the house and off the patio. in areas of high rainfall it may be necessary to install a drain at the lowest edge of the patio so that water drains off and away from the patio.
