Caulking/Sealing

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I wanted to discuss caulking today. I was caulking a basement window because it had leaked severely during the last rain storm, and while doing so I decided to do all of them, which was 5. Anyway, I came across an interesting technique. So you all know that caulk/sealer is made of silicone, and silicone dries from the outside in, meaning it will form a skin before it hardens. Well I was experiments and noticed that if you just sloppily lay the caulk down, and wait about 20 minutes, you can almost sculpt the caulk. What I mean is that instead of leveling it with your finger and getting all messy, you can just form it like play dough after it forms that skin, to any shape, size, or form. This would also come in handy if you have a hard to reach angle that you need to seal. If you try this, please share your results!
