What I found after removing 4'x8' panel siding.
How do I fix water getting into my walkout basement from my patio?
Hi, water got into my basement from the patio outside my walkout basement of my 40 y/o home. The flashing applied 40 years ago rusted away. Big box store advised flashing and sealant. Unexpected storms hit last night after removing siding and installing flashing, water came in. Did I do something wrong, did I use the wrong flashing (I have been told that the old flashing wasn't 'L' shaped, but can't tell from the old stuff). What do I do now. We have unexpected company coming and will need the basement space, plus I will have to remove moldy dry wall too, so need to fix this correctly.

I want to remove my popcorn ceiling, but it has asbestos in it. How do I go about this safely?
How do I fill gaps at baseboard, should I caulk? If so, does anyone know how to caulk baseboards?

Two year ago I put in a sump right next to the mess but the mess keeps growing
