I’ve attached a picture of our patio. I have no idea when it was installed or what the material is. As you can see, it’s in awful condition and practically unusable. We bought this house in a highly sought after area for a really good price. We have been saving and then doing one project at a time, paid in cash, since we bought the house 7 years ago. We only have 2 bathrooms to go (scheduled to start next month), and new siding (next year). In the meantime, I’d love to be able to come up with a short term, cost effective fix for the patio. It’s a walk out from the basement to our lake lot and dock. Eventually, we want to have it all torn out and put in an upper and lower deck/patio, but that’s last on our list. What can I do to make this useable in the meantime? I thought about rubber pavers (it would cost a little over $1,000) which would be worth it if it makes it flat and useable for the next few years, but given the unevenness of the surface, drainage issues, etc., I didn’t think it would be feasible. Then I thought about just trying to clean and fill in the broken areas with cement patches. I’m pretty sure that won’t work either though. Is there ANYTHING I can do other than tearing it all out to make it useable for a few years?
