I have a 16ft by 20 ft concrete slab patio. It is 4 years old. There are no cracks or crumbling anywhere. It is approximately 5 inches thich. The problem is that is has way too much pitch. When I sit on it I feel like I am going to roll off. Can I have a legit contractor come out and just pour over the old slab to even it out? Thanks

Without seeing it I would have to guess yes & no.

Yes you can have a contractor come out to look but no you won't be able to feather the concrete to nothing it will eventually fail at the edge.

...But you could place 3" of new & there are new products out there, I haven't tried, that let you go down to one inch.

It also depend on why the pitch in the first place and a myriad of other potential problems.
