Bottom of sidelights rusting, leaking into home


It is coming in where the bottom of the sidelight meets the horizontal brown weather strip door bottom. you could try clearing as much rust as you can and caulking with a heavy duty clear caulk along the top of the brown door bottom and up onto the door some.

Poorly flashed and installed door and poor or no no proper flashing for the 3'-4' canopy over the door. Very common with builders that just use a carpenter to install a door. Many better builders hire a certified window/door subcontractor (mainly for insurance and liability problems from mold and moisture damage in the wall).
