Default Leaking underneath the Front entry Door

We had couple noreaster rain storms and as a result I saw water in my basement right underneath my front door. After some troubleshooting, I did notice that the J-Channel on the sides of the door are missing. Is this enough to cause a problem? Or should I be looking for something else? Lastly, the top of door is flashed properly.

Thanks,

Sanjay

I doubt a missing J-channel (alone) would have much to do with leaking if there is brick mold or exterio casing on the door assembly. I would look for missing caulk and seal alsewhere.

I assume this is vinyl or steel or aluminum siding?

Honestly you may have a drain issue going on elsewhere........ I would make sure all your rain gutters are not flowing in the direction of the home basement ......

Aaron,

Have you ever had anyone proof read your own lengthy website?
You should!
