Before we get our first blast of cooler weather, make sure your home is prepared by sealing any gaps or cracks with DAP caulks and sealants. If your home is not properly winterized, outside weather conditions can cost you money by allowing moisture to get inside or warm air to escape through gaps in door jams or windows. DAP has created specialty caulks and sealants to protect your home from the elements, helping you stop drafty windows and doors, foundation erosion caused by leaky gutters, and by sealing pipework leading outside.
In addition to winterizing your house, DAP caulks and sealants provide superior performance while repairing or remodeling a house - and choosing the best caulk for the job is imperative. For example, a bathroom remodel requires a sealant which can withstand water and protect the joints connecting your bathtub to your floor or your sink to the counter. Otherwise, you could quickly develop issues with mold and damaged materials. DAP 3.0 Kitchen, Bath and Plumbing High Performance Sealant is mold and mildew resistant making it an ideal choice for quick tile repairs and for sealing tubs, showers, toilets and countertops.
Using a paintable caulk like DAP Alex Plus gives you a flexible seal that blends in to highly visible, high traffic areas in your home. Whether you’re winterizing or remodeling, you can trust DAP to have a product for any job as you work on your home.
