10 Pro-tested tips for choosing caulk
Proven tips for chosing caulk, because there are a lot of caulks on the market, and there are some things you should know when you’re choosing one.
Silicone-based caulks work well for kitchen and bath projects, but they cannot be painted and can be messy to work with.
Polyurethane-based products, on the other hand, are paintable; plus they adhere well and stay flexible without shrinking, making them the preferred choice for sliding, windows and doors.
Acrylic caulk should be used indoors, and not on projects requiring a sealant because acrylic caulk is not waterproof and tends to crack over time.
Clean the work surface carefully before you start caulking to keep prevent dirt and grit from getting in the way of the application.
