When choosing a suitable product, check the maximum gap size recommended that the caulk can fill.
Before caulking, you are advised to clean the surface thoroughly. It should be free from dirt, paint or grease.
Apply with even pressure and ensure that the caulk is evenly spread.
Clean any excess sealant with a damp cloth immediately after application.
Allow the surface to skin completely before painting.
Read the product labels carefully; different products require different amounts of time to skin and cure. The product should be sheltered from the rain until firmly skinned.
Cured product should be cleaned up. Depending on the product you are using, there are several ways of cleaning up. Some methods include using a putty knife to cut or scrape, sanding, or softening with acetone before removal.
