French Door leaking.

I started to install new flooring in our dining room and discovered another leak around our french doors. I had repaired these doors before. But this time he majority of the leak was on the other side of the door that did not need repairing the first time. My question is this. I know a roof would probably solve this problem but would gutters do the same thing. I really don't want to install a roof so I'm wondering if installing gutters would prevent the leaks.

Doors shouldn't leak, and often the siding or the way the siding or doors were installed are to blame. You haven't provided much information to go on, so it's imposible to answer. Generally, no... you would not need to replace a roof to prevent a door from leaking! Gutters might reduce the amount of water splashing off the roof but that doesn't get to the bottom of why the door is leaking in the first place.

Add pictures of the door exterior so we can see your door and siding. How old is the door? Did you install it?
