Home / Glossary / Caulking
Caulking is the process of applying a sealant used by painters and decorators, known as caulk, to fill gaps, cracks, and joints in various surfaces before painting. Caulk is a flexible material that helps create a smooth and seamless finish, preventing air or moisture from seeping through the gaps. It is commonly used in construction, home improvement, and painting projects to enhance the appearance and durability of surfaces.
