    Hi all

    We had windows and doors installed a few years back. Great lads, great jobs - no problems.

    There was a concrete step flush with the exit to the utility so the French door doesn’t have a drip edge.

    But now I’ve removed the step - putting in a patio and wondering what the best advise would be in retrofitting a drip edge.

    appreciate any advice. Thank you.

    Doesn't look like there is enough room under the door to install a drip edge,

    Could install flashing or glue uPVC trim around the edge to stop the wall getting wet.

    Thanks for that. How would that look, do you think? There’s a lip of concrete that will need to come off also. It’s more or less of anyway.

    Still waiting to hear back from the window company but I’m open to having the door removed, and drip edge installed if that’s a better job.

    Ah - there’s always work needed to be done.
