What should I use to fill the gap between my door frame and patio?

    Hello All!

    I've noticed a damp on my concrete floor coming from under the front door, so had a look and there is a huge gap between the tiles and the threshold as seen in the pics.

    Obviously I would need to fill it out with something that is waterproof to stop the damp. What would be the best material to use? Silicone? Mortar? Or something else?

    I'd really appreciate any product or technique recommendations to rectify this.
    Thank you!

    Guess water and damp is getting under.. You need that looked at but drainsge gully fitted along front to take water away would fix. Water building up under is getting in so filling the top won't work. That should have been sorted when slabs were laid [​IMG]

    Thank you for your reply! I have only a tiny damp spot and I am more than sure that it is coming from the gap. The solution you have suggested is a bit excessive in my situation and it is no longer possible. Could you be able to recommend a suitable filling material instead? Thank you.
