Hi Bob,

Mr. Villa I need advice. I enclosed my carport and am turning it into a sunroom. My only hold up in finishing the project is this, I installed a set of french doors as an entrance from the outside and the person I had pour a slab for me did a good job of leveling it out except where the doors are. I noticed when I installed the doors that there was a slight rise where the middle of the door sits and that when it rains I get water leaking in around the bottom corners. I used this liquid tar that you squeeze out of a tube the same way you do caulking and that didn't work. Then, I thought by laying down ceramic tile that the combination of cement, grout and sealer would do the trick but to no avail. I have small cracks in the grout and am wondering if filling those in would work or if the water may be coming down my "j" channel (I have viynl siding on the house) and then getting under the wood and entering the room. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you. Respectfully, Joe.
