Cincinnati Caulking Services

Caulking is an essential part of home ownership to guard against potentially costly water intrusion and water damage. Windows, doors, kitchen, bathrooms, and concrete all frequently need inspection for water intrusion and possible caulking repairs.

The nice part about caulking? You can tackle it easily as a homeowner! It's a particularly accessible repair because it does not require expensive tools or materials, and with some practice, can be learned fairly quickly.

However, using the incorrect type of caulk or poor technique can result in continued, or even worsened, water intrusion.

Keep reading for more information on caulking as a Cincinnati homeowner or watch our video featuring craftsman Will Compres displaying proper caulking technique.

Find the Right Caulk for the Job

Walking into Home Depot, Lowe’s, or another hardware store and seeing dozens of brands and options can feel overwhelming.

However, sometimes making the selection can be as simple as knowing what to look for and reading labels.

Let’s break down caulking options by job type.

Concrete Sealing and Caulking

As shown in the video above, many of our craftsmen utilize a DAP brand concrete sealant and filler with silicone added.

The presence of silicone will be an important theme throughout your caulking selection process. Silicone improves caulks adhesion to rougher surfaces and also increases its resistance to water, a perfect fit for concrete caulking projects.

Kitchen and Bathroom Caulking

Perhaps the most common places you’ll need caulking in your home. Quality, waterproof caulking in the kitchen and bathroom will help prevent leaks and water damage.

Not only will you want to find a siliconized caulk for the best chances at waterproofing, you’ll also want to find a mold-resistant caulk. This will be critical for maintaining the caulk long-term, particularly around showers or tubs where water is constantly present.

You can use DAP’s Premium Kitchen and Bath caulk, which checks all these boxes and also can be painted, a nice feature if you’re looking to match the caulk to nearby drywall or tile.

Door and Window Caulking

Your requirements for door and window caulking, as expected, are similar to other outdoor projects: waterproof and weather resistant.

However, in this case, flexibility is also highly important as wooden door frames and window frames move and expand with changes in moisture levels and temperatures.

Many of our craftsmen prefer QUAD’s exterior sealant, which comes in a variety of colors and offers a particularly strong seal to prevent leaks.

It’s worth noting that caulk may not solve your leak. Many customers call in asking for caulking services to repair a leak. However, the leak could be due to an issue with wood rot, flashing, or other problem areas around a window.
