Patio slab, mudjack or tear apart?
I've determined my patio poured slab slants towards my house at the North East corner.
Typically during windy rain storms a small trickle of water appears along my poured concrete wall (4in long by 2 in wide) at the same spot. I have a rec room downstairs.
We had a forecast for rain with wind today so I covered my entire patio which is 12 x 12 with a plastic tarp, taped it and pitched it away. I added a extra piece of tarp on the North East corner of the patio.
There was NO WATER trickling in my basement today at or near the problem area.
1) Should I mudjack the patio slab? Eventually the patio will start to sink & pitch towards my house after 3-5 years because of the frozen midwest ground.
2) Pull the slab out, grade the former slab area with brown landscape dirt, add fine street gravel, then pavers of my choice?
Will pulling the slab out cause a bigger problem with a basement leak? Reason being the former slab area is now exposed, but graded + pitched with dirt/gravel away from my house?
