Silicone Caulk Removal


I have a half brick front house. The seams between the wood siding and brick have been caulked with silicone. The silicone caulk has separated from the siding and needs to be replaced. I am having problems removing the silicone from the brick. I am open for any ideas that will help make this job easier

Silicone Caulk Removal


You can use a sharp tool or even a razor knife (wear gloves) to avoid damaging materials. Add some water at times and go nice and slowly to keep the control.
