As we head into Labor Day, we're approaching the last great project weekend! One of the projects you may be tacking is sealing your home, just before the fall weather starts to set in.
The most important decision you will make is choosing the right sealant for your log or timber home. Many sealing problems are attributed to the caulking material itself, and most often the proper sealant was not used for the right job.
Basically, there are six types of caulks: butyl, oil-based, ethylene vinyl acetate, urethane, silicone and acrylic/latex. All are designed to do a specific job, and none are suitable for every application.
