Hi

We have recently had large glass sliding doors installed on our external ground floor balcony. The company who did the installation had to raise the frame up from the concrete balcony to level things up. This has left a gap in some places running along the concrete floor to outside.

I am now thinking of the best way to essentially draught proof and prevent rain bouncing in through those gaps (Largest places 1cm high x 10cm wide)
I wondered whether some expanding foam filler initially and then some kind of external sealant or trim over that ?

Any thoughts or advice would be very much appreciated

Thanks

:welcomeuhm:

sounds like a plan, just be aware that expanding foam expands... a lot more than you might expect. You'll have to be able to get a sharp knife in there to trim it back before siliconing a suitable trim on.
