Are you looking for a caulk?

Customer:

sure, that sounds right

Rick :

Ok, urethane caulking is a better option than silicone for bonding to both wood and concrete. There a many good products here is a high quality product at Home Depot
Urethane caulk

Rick :

But I don't know if you have a Home Depot nearby

Customer:

i do.

Customer:

So just blow or take out all dirt, make it clean and caulk it up?

Rick :

Dap also makes a good option at HD

Rick :

You must have a clean surface or the caulk won't bond well.

Rick :

Keep in mind that urethane caulking can stay tacky for 24 hours and should not be applied in cold weather (below freezing) but this time of year is fine

Customer:

appreciate it. thanks
