Hi all, I am after some advice regarding my concrete porch roof which I believe I have water penetrating and showing inside I thought it was getting past a poorly sealed front door but have resealed it and it's no better, i have included a picture of the same style porch and what's happening inside, what would be the best remedy for this? Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the reply, the seal is OK,the door is only partially recessed into the porch if that makes sense, and it's only across the top of the door and couple of inches down the side which is showing signs of water getting in. Thanks.

Is the underside of the porch wet just outside the door frame?
How did you re-seal the poorly fitted front door?

I've just been round to have a look the whole underside of the porch in front of the door has condensation on it this evening but no actual rain (it's been lashing it down all day) I resealed the door by removing the cloaking trim and putting sealant between the door frame and walls and refitting a new cloaking trim then sealing it all up.

Well some more photos might help. It could just be condensation from the cold porch roof concrete that's getting into the plaster.

How long has this been happening? What state is the concrete porch roof in? What about the join between the roof and the walls?
If the concrete is breaking up then it could be leaking so would probably need some sort of covering.
