Concrete deck waterproofing

I recently built a concrete deck garage that is now leaking through the roof/deck. I am looking for something that can waterproof the deck. I looked at Dryloc but it isnt recomended for floors, does anyone have any suggestions for waterproofing a concrete deck?

If I'm following you correctly, you put a concrete deck on top of your garage.

You should have planned for the drainage BEFORE you poured the concrete! Trying to seal it and make it watertight at this point is only going to be a temporary fix, at best.

Peronally, I would get rid of the concrete entirely, properly slope and seal the garage roof with EDPM or similar, then install a wood or composite deck surface on top of that.
