    Sliding Glass Doors - water comes in the bottom frame

    So I have water that comes into the bottom frame of the sliding glass doors any time it rains.

    I'm pretty sure this can be fixed. any Geo recommendations of door installation specialists or handymen?

    Sometimes the track gets filled with water- I think I have seen small through-holes drilled at the bottom to let the water out but, as said above some pics would help.


    Besides, best to give the handyman some guidance because he may not be able to figure out where the leak is coming from.

    I had a similar problem due to some screw holes on the external part of the lower frame. Just filled them up with bathroom sealant and they were fine for many years. Typhoon mangkhut sort of made everything a bit obsolete because the rain was coming so hard and squeezing through my ageing rubber side seals...but for your average HK rain, the sealant still works.

    It’s worth trying before splashing out on a contractor.
