what type of caulk to use?


newbie here. Caulking a joint made of wood, where the ceiling and a wall come together (this is outside). What type of caulk is best for this (silicone, all purpose, latex?) Would this be a good one? Would Volkem 116 be good (http://www.amazon.com/Almond-Tremco-...0714970&sr=1-6) or GE Contractors Silicone?

Also, what's best to caulk joints between bathtub and tile?

Thanks for your help!

In both cases use 100% silicone. More flexible and a better water barrier.

A good polyurethane like Vulkem (as you mentioned) or Quad is all I use for exterior wood siding applications.
