door threshold problem

I have this door threshold that has holes (back door to yard). I am in touch with handyman. they say that it's not worth repairing. It's better to replace whole door plus frame which will cost quite a bit with labor and material.
any ideas and opinions if it's worth fixing or just replacing it?

IMO your money would be better spent replacing the whole prehung door.

After I swapped out my door bottom sweep I found that the same adjustable threshold was too tall.

I looked everywhere for a replacement since it was broken, had to fabricate a new one out of aluminum bar stock.

Judging by the amount of caulk I see in the photo I assume there is more rotten wood than just the little piece you can see on the threshold. Your handyman, who has actually seen the door, might be right with replacing the entire door.
