Hello everyone. I also have leak on the top of my patio door. There is a small deck and patio door above this door as well, with about a 2 foot gap between deck above and top of leaking door, underneath. I looked under siding and it is dry. I think the water is coming in somewhere around my j-channel and drip cap. Should I put a piece of flashing above the drip cap and j channel this divert the water? See pictures. Any help would be great! Thanks. Tim

How did that water get all over the siding, where you doing a water test?
Looks like someone tryed to micky mouse some form of Z moulding over that door. I'd bet for one thing it's angled back toward the wall and does not go up behind the siding and just sits on top of the brick molding. I'd remove that piece of siding and see.
Also if that water is from rain then someone messed up when step flashing your porch roof allowing water to get in behind the siding.
The water got in the siding from alot of rain coming down today. I'm not sure the proper way for the z flashing to be? I took a few more photos to try and show you moreso what it looks like. When I look above the patio door, underneath the siding, there is no water seeping in there from above. Therefore the water must be getting in below - around the top of door/j-channel? What are your thoughts? The drip cap goes up behind siding and is angled away from the house.

What exactly do you mean by "step flashing" my porch?
