Interior door. I plan on sealing it. Hope I'm not too late after today's rain
Even with sealing it the water can get in. Sealant should help that the water shouldn't soak into the panel of the door. But it can get into the particle board that sits at the top. I know there is a frame, so that should stop the water from dripping directly onto it.
Anyways hope it works out

you can get a cheap fiberglass exterior door at home depot for $199. Definitely not 5x the price of the door in the picture though it is about 4x the price of the cheapest prehung interior door at home depot.

You were right about the door. Completely warped. I had to force it open and couldn't come close to closing it. Had to take off about half an inch from the jamb.

What's the problem with a 2x4?
