Running wires outside


I need to run some wires outside (coax and electrical) and I have a few questions.

1. What kind of conduit should I use? I'm thinking PVC so it's weather resistant.
2. How should the conduit be attached to the house and how can I prevent air and water leakage?

going to need more info, do you have it going under ground anywhere? over head anywhere? first of all i can tell you youre not going to put coax in the conduit with electrical, but as far as raceway, and mounting give more details about the project, where is it going how high/low under over etc...
