We've recently had a new wooden front door and frame fitted by the
builder who did our loft extenstion. It's a terraced house with no
porch or covering around/over the door.
The door is set into the door frame which has a stop all around it
that is about 15mm thick. There is a 2-3 mm clearance between the base
of the door and the frame behind the stop.
The door is letting in water under heavy rain which is seeping under
the door onto the carpet in the hallway.
I've complained to my builder who says that it will let in water if
there is "driving rain" and that there is nothing he can do about it.
Before I get into a discussion about this with him, can anyone advise
me about the best way of sealing the door at the bottom?
I've seen on friends houses a metal strip that runs across the base of
the door frame.
