Leaky porch

Please help!!Our front porch leaks, and this would not be so bad except that it is above our new family room. Is there any product out there that can be applied to stop any water from getting in? We are prepared to put on a new porch but we want to do it correct so we can stay dry

I have similar problem. Mine got worse after the repour. I had a 2ft void beneath slab that was backfilled with rock and compacted. Now it appears that I will need to do waterproofing in this areas. Hopefully from the inside.

Hope you find a solution. Does you slab have expansion joints? You may want to try self-leveling caulk like stuff if you plan on replacing porch someday. I think this will only be a band-aid, but could buy you some time.
