Basement window - gap between brick and inner membrane
First off - I am very glad to have found this site. I`m a new home owner and don`t have a lot of experience with repairs but I`ll try to explain my dilemma.
I just purchased a brick home built in 1959. I was outside, investigating the basement windows and it looks like they were installed too far back. The result is (at some points) a 1 inch gap between the brick and the inner membrane of the house (batting/flashing?).
I purchased some great stuff expanding foam and my plan was to squeeze it in there to make a seal. Is this advisable?
If this is unclear, please let me know and I can elaborate/upload a pic.
Thanks very much,
