Hi All,
After the heavy rain we had recently. We seem to have a leak at the top of our French doors. Could this be the lintel itself or maybe the brick work above? All the other lintels in the house seem dry in comparison.
dry in comparoson.
Cheers

How long have you lived there?

Or did you have the opening made?

Lack of a cavity tray might be the problem.

Hi HWK, thak you for your reply.
We have been here around 5 years with no real problem. The doors have been installed for around 3 months. We are in the process of asking them to come out to see if it was caused by their team.
After looking into it a bit more I think you might be right. Or maybe the pagoda is blocking the weepholes.
