Several different types of caulk are available in the market today. It’s important that you pick the right type of caulk for the job you have in mind. For example, bathroom caulk won’t be as effective for your windows as exterior caulk designed for use outside the home. Some homeowners and contractors prefer the look of clear silicone caulk (as opposed to colored caulk) so it doesn’t draw attention from the home’s facade. However, the choice of whether to pick colored or clear caulk is up to you.

While some caulk can only be applied in warm weather (40 to 80° F), certain rubber or silicone caulk can be applied in weather as cold as -20° F. The rubber or silicone base prevents the caulk from freezing in cold temperatures.

You can buy caulk as either a squeeze tube or cartridge. We recommend using a cartridge and caulking gun so you can apply an even bead around the perimeter of your windows. Silicone caulk is not only long-lasting, but it effectively fills in gaps that are leaking cold air into your home.
