Default french door leaking

Can I buy the swing door of a french door assembly? Mine is leaking; the seal around the glass has failed and the wood interior is water damaged.

If you know the manufacturer of the unit you can contact them
for guidance in purchasing a replacement.

If it is an older installation or you do not know the brand you will
probably have to replace the entire unit. Matching a new door
to an older door will be close to impossible .

Alternatively, if you can find someone with old fashioned door fitting
skills in your area they can probably get you a pair of new fiberglass doors
and fit them to the existing jambs.

Best of luck with the project!
