I am joining this diy chatroom because when my husband died a year ago in August, I was left with a home that was in dire need of lots of fixes. I find myself needing to learn how to do a few of those things. How to use the tools and how to take care of all the things that used to be my husband's to do. I found this site when I went to google looking for information on how to do mold/damp remediation and crack repair in a concrete block basement. I discover from one of your threads that I am going to have to dig on the outside in order to save the two walls that have spider cracks and not just seam cracks. I would like to know at some point what product is best for sealing the outside walls of my block wall basement. At this point, I think I am overwhelmed with the amount of work that it is going to take to fix this basement. I know hiring it done will cost in the thousands, but perhaps I can hire some high school students to help me dig. I am totally out of my element.

I welcome you also.

Offer condolences on losing your significant other.

There are very good advisers on this forum.

And all want to help with even the most minor , or the major problem.

Remember the only stupid question is the one not asked.
