I have a 27 yr old solid oak door unit with sidelights. The bottom of the mull posts that sit on the aluminum sill have rot. The sidelights have perimeter weather stripping on the exterior. I think water has gotten into the mull post base through the kerf that runs up and down each mull post. I've had a storm door on the unit for about the entire time the door has been there so I'm guessing water found it's way in at the bottom of the corner where the mull post meets the sidelights. I fixed the rotted sections and I replaced the bottom section of the weather stripping. The seam I created isn't going to help things. I'm thinking of putting a good size bead of silicone caulk over the weather stripping, at the bottom corners and about a foot up from the corner.....along the bottom of the sidelights as well.

Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Paul
