Sliding patio door track
I have a question regarding our sliding patio door. We had hard driving rain over the weekend. I noticed a small amount of rain water in the track of the sliding glass door. Not much, was able to wipe up with a paper towel.
Should rain water be on the interior side of the sliding door track? According to comments from the manufacturer, the answer is yes. Just doesn’t seem right to me.
For clarifications, this door is going to go out onto the deck, but the deck hasn’t been built at the moment. There is no ground next to the door, it is elevated above the walk-out basement. From what I can tell, the water came in from the exterior side of the track, assuming from the water dripping down the glass.
