I need some help and guidance on DIY repair for exterior of my basement windows (close to the ground). There are minor cracks around the joints where brick veneer and basement concrete foundation meets. I don't have any issues with leakage etc. But, I realize that it can cause issues in the long run. Please note that home is about 8 years old.
Please see the picture here:
I am newbie to the DIY concept. So, any details, links and references you can provide for the solution will greatly help.
Should I caulk/seal these cracks or apply a patch of mortar? In addition, should I also consider painting with some kind of waterproofing paint?
I greatly appreciate your help.
