Caulking and painting


Is it best to caulk around edge of sink that meets wall and to caulk trim before or after painting?

Yes, and before, respectively. And bring your paint out over the caulk between the sink and wall.

GE Groov Tub and Bath is good paintable silicionized latex caulk.

DAP Alex plus is another one. Don't get plain silicone caulk if you plain to paint over it.

If you don't plan to paint it, I like GE silicone caulk.

Implied in above but I want to make really clear- DO NOT USE 100% SILICONE CAULK anywhere that will ever be painted.
Clear?
if it doesn't say paintable on it, it probably isn't , and will repel paint for a half life of a gigillion years. Really.

Yes it's a good idea to caulk where the sink meets the wall. Also when caulking your trim do it after the rim is primed. Never caulk bare wood, the bare wood will suck the moisture out of the caulk and it will crack.

About the same amount of time it is going to take to break down the trillions of tons of plastic sheeting we will be disposing of when complying with RRP
