Hey just bought our first house and am a little lost. Excuse my ignorance upfront and thanks for any help in advance.
There's a large concrete pad in our backyard with maybe an inch gap between it and the foundation of the house. It is filled with a sort of felt like material and then there was a layer of caulking or similar material filled in over that. The problem is that over the years the caulking has deteriorated and is pretty much gone leaving the felt like material exposed. As the felt is exposed, it has absorbed water. So I want to re-caulk this gap but the felt is wet. What should I do?
Try and remove the felt, fill the gap with something and re-caulk it?
Wait for a couple of hot days and hope the felt dries out?
Caulk over the damp felt?
Any help is appreciated.
