    Hello I've been trying to weather proof my front door and have had advice to fit a threshold kit. I have now purchased it but I'm not sure it should go in to a upvc door frame? Does anyone know if anything should sit in the bottom of the door frame? Picture for info but not mine.
    I was actually looking for a L shaped cill / sill cover for the concrete threshold under the upvc door and ended up with this issue and still havent got the cill cover!
    Thanks in advance.

    I doubt if a threshold will work

    does the door frame have no external cill -that projects over the brickwork?

    have you checked if the drainage holes are blocked

    is the water getting underneath the door frame

    if the door was fitted without a cill, one cant be added now because it would add 30mm to the door frame height

    a pic from outside would be helpful -one showing the bottom half of the door and below it
