    The leak is either from the space directly under the coping that sits on the brick wall connecting my house with the next row house. I am going to caulk this area but am not sure if I shouldn’t use a flash mate silicone sealant or a polyurethane caulk based on a video recommendation. The...

    Hello! This is a new house, radiant heat embedded in 3 floors of 3.5-4" concrete. It was cured 2.5 months in dry, low humidity weather (a few spring rainstorms but generally 30-45% humidity) and water finish was applied. The pouring concrete crew was different than the sealer crew. Prior to...
