Have you ever had a hard time choosing the right caulking? There really is a key to choosing the right caulking, and it is amazingly simple once you understand what it is. That key is location, location, location. By knowing where you will be using the caulking you will know what type of caulking you need.
Here are a few examples of the more commonly used areas where you would use caulking. No brand names will be mentioned, rather you will see that an identifying ingredient is listed instead. Find this ingredient, and you will have the right caulking for your particular project.
One thing that you need to keep in mind about these different types of caulking is that all of them should be applied in the right kind of conditions. Those conditions are in dry weather, with a temperature range between 50 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit. If you are working in temperature conditions outside of that range, you will need to use a more specialized type of caulking, such as cold caulking.
