Need more data. Is the leak between the door slab and the frame, or
outside the frame between it and the wall? And is this a NEW new house,
or new to you? If newly built, get the builder back in there- their door
guy didn't install door properly. If new to you, and you don't know how
to fix, buy a DIY book with pictures, or hire a good handyman and watch
him. Not rocket science, but hard to explain in just words.
The leak is between the door and the weatherstripping on the door
stop. It is a New new house. Getting the builder back in has been a
very difficult chore. I am threatening to go to small claims court on
another issue he hasn't fixed yet. (Been in the house since Sept 30)
Have you sent the builder a written description of the problems? If
not, it would be a good idea, and send certified mail. Make it nice,
business-like accurate description of prolem and ask specifically what
steps he will take to correct the problem. Do you know who, if any
sub-contractors did work? Hope you haven't already threatened to him to
take him to s.c. court - that probably won't gain points. Submitting a
complaint against his license would be a good next step if he doesn't
correct the issues. I wouldn't do any work on the issues myself unless
you give up on him, as he can then claim that you caused the problem or
added to them.
