In the original Caulking for Beginners post in late June of 2011, I mused over whether the 5 year guarantee for the brand of caulk I chose and my desire to have thin, neat lines of caulking (instead of blobs…) might actually play out –
Well, the 5-year question has been answered – and after this, no further updates, as the place has been sold and this weekend, I took the last photos.
I’m very pleased with the performance of the caulk I chose and even more silly-excited that my first attempt to do the-all-by-me-lonesome job has held up so well.
Here’s the pics, taken on July 2, 2016:
Since Caulking for Beginners is my most perennial popular post – thought it only right to post the 5 year update with current pictures.
So go ahead, take a deep breath, read, gather your tools, fix a pot of coffee for leisure/pondering breaks during the project and relax – you can do it!
Oh, and Gloves – Don’t forget the gloves… unless you want to wait for it to wear off the fingers you used to smooth the line and make it look purdy…
