Whether you use a silicone or latex caulk depends on where the product will be applied and the type of material it will be applied to. Here are some guidelines to help:
- Resistant to accepting paint
- Works well in joints near wet areas
- Adheres well to metal, plastic, glass and ceramic
- Generally accepts paint
- Cleans up with soap and water
- Adheres well to wood and drywall
When purchasing caulk, read the label carefully to make sure it will perform the job you need.
