Garage Door Leak

On rainy days some water has been getting into the garage through the door. A previous attempt to stop this can be seen, some mortar in the edge but it didn’t work. 

I have tried using mastic, some 2×2 and damp proof membrane. The Dpm was stapled to the wood, the mastic applied and then the wood held tight to the floor with some screws. 

  
The timber wasn’t quite long enough so a few scraps with mastic should seal off the edges. 

I hope it works.
