    Can anyone help with why my front UPVC door is leaking. I dont just mean dripping either, it leaks like a sieve, the whole of my front porch carpet gets absolutely saturated. We are currently renting and have had the bloke (bodger) who fitted it back numerous times and he just sticks more mastick in various places, but we're now in process of buying the house so will be needing to fix this properly.
    The water seems to poor in the bottom of the frame.

    Sorry pics so big, tried to make it smaller but it wont let me drag it. You can see the bottom "tray" of the door frame, thats where the water all seems to pool in and then leak through into the porch and saturate the carpet. If anyone can see whats wrong and advise Id be very grateful, thanks.
    RIP Lc Cpl George Davey
