I have 2 very newly installed ( < 1yr) jeldwen sliding patio doors (aluminum clad) , and I found that they are leaking air on inside around the bottom and side edges of trim. I am wondering whether this is a problem with the installation/product or if its something that I just have to caulk up myself from what visible?
The first one I had installed was leaking air (could feel it on cold windy days) in a gap where my hardwood floor met the frame of the patio door (see arrow 1 in picture) which I caulked up to stop. Arrow 2 and 3 show the areas where I can feel the air on both doors.
How can i know if there was a problem with the installation or if this is just normal for patio doors?. I know that this door is supposed to be very tight according to energy star label at least. Should I just caulk the trim and areas on the inside where I can feel the air or is there something else I should be wary of (lacking expanding foam on installation or something?).
Thanks for any help.
