  2. What should I use to stop water entering my steel building where the steel siding meets the concrete?

    Thank you.

    • Hi, Larry,
      We would need more information about the building to provide the best solution for this leak. You can connect one-on-one with a home improvement pro immediately through JustAnswer, a Today’s Homeowner partner:
      Good luck with that leak!

  3. (1) Cracks in driveway slab? Concrete man said only solution was to tear up the driveway and pour new cement- cost $8,000. Any kind of solution would help.
    (2) Besides my home I have a bunkhouse and trying to complete an patio. Friends have brought stepping stones and have a large circle with their names on stones–but need suggestion for dirt around circle. Water is a problem in West Texas, Thank you…Joyce
