    What is the recommended caulk/product to use to keep out water between vinyl material and concrete slab? My garage has siding material all the way down to the concrete slab and I have used silicone caulk to seal the gap between the siding J Channel and the concrete, however after about a year the caulk seems to break down and stop doesn't form a good seal any longer. Picture is below of the wall. I'm trying to prevent water from outside from seeping under the wall inside. Picture is below. Thanks in advance.

    You will need to learn how to remove a little siding and add a flashing from behind the siding to over the edge of the concrete.

    Look into product/materials by the name of Butyl, Quad or Vulkem.
