Air leaking from doors
Air comes in from the edges of patio glass door when its windy outside. If it is not windy i don't notice any air leak. Is this normal? If not, do i need to replace the doors or is there any easy way to repair this problem?

not normal. replace the weather stripping on the frame

Thanks for the reply. Good that i don't have to replace the doors. That would have been a budget breaker.

not saying that. your attempt to fix it will address that issue. It is possible you have really cheap doors. Even then you should be able to weather seal them.
