Hi there...I have a home that is cinder block on the first level...stucco on the second...the cement cap or lip that separates the two levels has cracked over the years...i would like to fix this but it might be beyond me...it there anything i can cap it with that is more pliable than cement??..the house is old and it seems to shift a bit with the change of seasons...i am afraid of moisture also getting in...any ideas??...thanks ..Deb
