I'm planning on repainting the house next week. There are a few minor things i have to fix before that happens. One of them is a seam. This used to have a one car attached garage. The garage door was bricked up and the garage turned into a living room.

Now 20 or 30 years ago however long ago it was done, they filled the seam for the filled in garage door with some kind of latex based epoxy and painted it. And back then im sure it looked great. Fast forward to today and that filler has dried, shrunk, etc so i want to clean it out and re-do it before i paint, but have 0 idea of what i would need for something like that.

I would think i would want to clean that gap out and put some kind of fresh fill in there. I've read a couple things that say use masonry, i've seen some that says use latex and add a bit of sand. Does anyone have any experience with this?

I may have to go to youtube university.

You built a wall inside a garage right behind the garage door?

Need some details, pics would help.

I***8217;m guessing they just bricked the void to match the existing brick of the house.

I***8217;m also guessing they did not dig down to original foundation and tie in a new length of foundation to original. Causing seam to crack.

Did they tooth the bricks into existing brickwork or just build a 9 foot wall with no real support? Not good.

You will never get mortar to stay if wall wasn***8217;t built correct. They do make a masonry caulk, which you can find at any brickyard.

My biggest concern is you have a giant freestanding wall not tied into house properly in a hurricane prone area.

I have lots of experience with this ****. You need to explain what the 2 surfaces are and the size of the gap.

There are a range options. It won't be an epoxy. They typically nonflexible two part tough stuff. It's was likely "Mastic". Do you have that **** there. Like silicon but better and for bigger gaps. Comes in variety of colours but concrete grey is very common. Expanding polyurethane can also be good if it's a huge gap. This is how you typically do it in an expansion joint in a brick/concrete wall.

A "backing rod" (looks like thin pool noodle) it shoved in half way. Both sides are then Mastic'ed. Like silicon but comes in sausage typically and goes into a large version of a caulking gun.

Hold a tape measure up against it and take some photos pleae.

Polyurethane in a can (expanding foam) can be suitable ( and much cheaper) but you likely to get it everywhere it's messy ****. But you can trim it and get a tidy job if you know what you are doing and mask up the job first. Can be quicker than backing rod 2 thick beads of mastic.

If you are going brick to brick or brick to concrete you are likley looking at something like:

https://www.homedepot.com/p/Loctite-...8522/203156788

or

https://www.homedepot.com/p/FLEX-SEA...Sealant-4-Pack

I can't do all your research and that s what you need to do sometimes for a job. So you really want to look at the technical data sheets for the product like this. The hardware stores will often list the SDS for safety but you (also) want the TDS. So I'm askign about the materials and width because I looking at that in the TDS for this stuff:

https://cdn.paintsupply.com/wp-conte...-Sheet-252.pdf

Looks like page 2 goes up to about 1.5 inches. 38 mm but you have to read it all.

If it was a really thin gap I'd say silicon. If it was really big or uneven I say investigate expanding polyurethane in a can. I fit was a 3mm crack in concrete, then maybe epoxy.

Whatever you use it's likely you want both surfaces nice and rough and clean so the **** "keys" into the surface. No flaky bits of paint or old silicon, loose mortar etc messing up your bond. I've hit it with a small grinder or pressure wash, or scrap and chip it with a cold chisel if I wanted fresh brick. A wire brush if you can get to the surfaces will do after you get rid of the dusty crap.

Have to google the Technical Data Sheets.

Yeah was going to say look at backer rods and sealant.
Depending on the width of the gap might look at expansion joint covers, though that's more of a commercial solution.
Posting a picture would help.

Also Jimmy Pop is dead on if that new brick isn't toothed into the existing you have a much bigger issue.
