About Caulk

Caulk is used to seal gaps and cracks. It prevents the entrance or exit of air, water, dust and insects through construction materials.

What is Caulk?

Caulk is a product used to seal cracks between similar or dissimilar building materials. Caulk is usually applied with a tool called a caulk gun. Caulking sealant can be used for both interior and exterior applications. It prevents the passage of air, water, moisture, dust and more. Caulks can vary on both elasticity and durability.

Common places in a building where you will find caulking sealant used include around windows and doors, in kitchens and bathrooms, and when finishing woodwork.
Why use caulk?
Gaps and cracks happen in all types of construction. Caulks are good to use to fill those cracks. Caulks help keep buildings energy efficient and keep water, insects, dust and more from entering a structure. Caulk is good to use in areas with minimal expansion and contraction because it is fairly rigid once it dries.
What are the benefits of using caulk?
Caulks defend a building from unwanted air, water, pests and more. Caulk keeps these items from both penetrating and exiting through construction material joints. Caulking sealant is easy to use and easy to clean up. Additionally, caulks can be painted, making them easy to blend in to a finished construction project.
In what geographies can caulk be used?
Caulk can be used in all locations throughout the United States. Some caulks are better for indoor or outdoor use, and other caulks are UV resistant. There are several caulk products that are designed to withstand extreme temperatures, making them suitable for all climates. To find the right caulk for your application, talk to your local Service Partners professional.
Can caulk be used in residential or commercial construction?
Caulk is used in all types of construction. While some caulks can be used in many applications, there are some caulks that are considered specialty caulks. There are specific caulks for bathrooms, concrete, gutters, roofing, interior and exterior projects. Caulk can used by everyone from homeowners to insulation professionals.

Caulk Benefits

Caulk defends a building from unwanted penetration of air, water, moisture and more. Caulk can be painted and is easy to clean.

Seal Gaps and Cracks

Any gaps or cracks in a structure can allow air, water, moisture, dust, insects and more to pass through. Caulk is used to fill these gaps and provide an effective seal. You can pick a specific type of caulk to fit your application and materials. Caulk is usually applied easily with a caulking gun.

Easy to Clean

Service Partners sells a variety of types of caulking sealant. However, all of these caulk products are easy to clean. Water-based caulk cleans up with soap and water. Siliconized acrylic latex caulk dries quickly but it also easy to clean up. So while you’re able to effectively seal cracks, you can clean up any excess easily.

A Variety of Types

Caulk comes in several different varieties including latex, acrylic and silicone. Latex caulk can be painted, has minimal odor and works on porous and nonporous surfaces. Silicone caulk is more flexible and holds up to extreme temperatures and sunlight. Acrylic caulk is the most common caulk because it is versatile and easy to clean.

Caulk Accessory Types

Caulk is available in latex, acrylic and silicone varieties. Each type has strengths and weaknesses that make it appropriate for different applications or materials.

Latex

Latex caulk is more durable and elastic than acrylic caulk. It performs well in both interior and exterior applications. Latex caulks clean easily with soap and water, have minimal odor and are best suited for constant gaps. While latex caulk can be used on porous and nonporous surfaces, it does tend to weaken in extreme temperatures and sunlight.

Acrylic

Acrylic is the most common caulk. It is versatile and works well to seal joins in most interior applications. It’s also very easy to clean. Acrylic caulk can also be painted and works well on windows, doors, walls and baseboards.

Silicone

Silicone caulks provide one of the best seals; however, they do not adhere quite as easily to porous surfaces like wood or masonry. It is more flexible, holds up to extreme temperatures and sunlight and is very durable. Some types of silicone caulk can be painted. To clean silicone caulk, you’ll need mineral spirits.
