Leaking problem on slab foundation.

Hi, We are redoing our back porch, It is built on a slab of what seems to well formed concrete. Our walls for the porch are built on top of the slab but water is leaking under the wall between the slab and the wall. We have storm drains to direct water away from the house. My husband is using silicone caulking to try to seal the problem. Any other suggestions?

Leaking problem on slab foundation.

How high above the outside grade (ground level) is the concrete floor slab?

I assume the water is lwaking under the ouside porch wall and not the wall between the house and the porch.
