French door leaking on new build

Brandie May
2 months ago

We have a 72" Masonite inswing French door on the back of our new build home. Every time it rains there are puddles on the subfloor. GC can't figure out what the issue is and has requested a brand rep come take a look. One of the helpers mentioned that he has never seen an uncovered French door not leak. I am not going to cover this door. Would an outswing door be less likely to leak? I was thinking that maybe the wind would actually push in and give the door a better seal during a storm. This picture was taken after a heavy storm, the water is only on the sides during an average rain. Thoughts? Suggestions?
