Caulking before exterior painting.

20 Jun

Caulk all vertical seams where the boards come together, knott’s in the wood, and any cracks where water can penetrate. DO NOT caulk horizontally under your siding boards, yes it looks nice after it’s painted but it will trap in moisture which will rot the wood. Use paintable caulk and you will want to use clear paintable caulk against brick so you don’t get the ugly look of caulk smashed all over your brick. Another trick is to tape off the brick before you caulk to help keep a clean uniform line.
