The previous owner tried to caulk the wood molding at the bottom but that gave away a long time ago. This has now gotten to the point that the sheetrock inside the garage on this wall is
becoming damaged and needs replacing. I tried making little cuts in the concrete here to divert the water away and it works if there is just a sprinkle anything more and I get what you see in the pictures.
Does anyone know of something I could do or use to block the water from coming in? I have thought of using thin brick pavers or some other sort of "hump" but im not really sure whats the best route. Id rather only have to do it once than to keep coming back and trying everything under the sun.

here's what we just did for a condo assoc - your solution's probably still a properly
installed slot drain but the abovegrade curb ( rainwater diverter ) is a less expensive alternate
We have a pool deck that is stamped concrete with a blue finish. I do not know what type of sealer was originally put down. Now the sealer is wearing off and some brown concrete is
starting to show. What should I reseal it with? Polyaspartic? acrylic? urethane? And can I use a precolored sealer to cover up the brown spots? Thank you very much.

no experience w/newlook but w/o question solvent is preferable to water,,, the amount of
contained ' solids ' are important - the more the better - eg, elitecrete's ' CSS ' is a 50% solids reinforced w/methylmethacrylate,,, imho, the best sealer avail to either pro OR diy'er,,, it must be cut w/xylene (2xy:3css) to properly apply it as its too thick straight out of the 5g can,,, as w/all sealers, 2 thin coats are better than 1 heavy.
I was so pleased with the DIY project on our back patio! I stained the concrete to look like tile. We used painter's tape to create the look of grout lines, and we used a concrete stain from Lowe's to stain the concrete. For a step by step tutorial, just click on the link below.

amazing, that's the most available choice to diy'ers - an apron/vest store or sher-wms,,, you
probably know training is non-existent in the apron-vest & only slightly better at the 3rd - good talking w/you yesterday !
some time ago we repaired several parking deck floors in brooklyn w/urethane top coat,,,
finished last deck late 1 nite & met w/owner's rep for his inspection next day,,, on the 2nd level down, we found a rat stuck ( for life as he was dead ) in the midst of the floor still in running profile,,, 5in1's are great tools !
