Caulk is used to create a waterproof or insulating seal between building materials. Examples where caulk is used to fill a gap include: between a tub and tile, countertop and backsplash, or window and frame. Although applications may seem similar, the key to a successful seal is to make sure you use the correct caulk for the job.
A well-done caulking job can protect your home against moisture intrusion, drafts and heat leakage for many years. Completing this task now will make the transition to “cool season-mode” much easier.
