Caulking question(7 posts)
Trying not to wear out my welcome here, but I have two questions that I will post separately. First, to caulk or not to caulk...that is the question.
I have been doing my research and most postings say to treat cracks and crevices then seal with caulk. However, I have found some threads that say if you live in a detached house it is better to leave crevices open for the bugs to come out and cross poison.
I live in a detached single family home. Spidyj or anyone else who can help me with this, I'd greatly appreciate advice. Still trying to do all I can. Three months and biting...
Good question..I just bought caulk and live in a single family so I'll wait to read what others have to say. I was going to caulk a bedframe...
Place DE or other long lasting dust of your choice into cracks crevices and behind moldings and then seal with a SEALANT not caulk as it will crack and gap over time.
Oh darn...will go back to the store and get sealant.
Is sealant clear? Is there a particular kind? Is it applied with a caulking gun?
It can be clear or any of the other wonderful assortment of colors black or white. It is applied just like caulk the only difference is the word sealant on the product label and the elastomer-iciness of whats inside.
Thanks Winston! Will do.
