I'm working on repainting a room. I've repaired a few wall areas where the wall was brittle etc. from moisture (house is 60 years old). There's an area alongside the window where I've chipped out some brittleness also. Is there some type of filler or compound I could fill in there? The area would be too tricky to use joint compound.

Sad to say, an inspector told us that our basement has the beginnings of a black mold problem. I heard this can be a catastrophe, costing a fortune. Is there a safe way to handle the problem without getting trapped into a complete basement remodeling project?
I'm very interested in making my home more energy efficient, both for the environment and for cost savings. I've been thinking about installing new windows but I'm feeling overwhelmed by the choices available. What are the most important things I should consider when looking at a window installation?
