Caulk by Brick and Trim?


What do you typically fill these gaps with? It is where the porch trim meets the brick.

Thanks for your help!

Thanks. I used that when I replaced all my windows in the house about 6 years ago, and it has held up beautifully. Didn't know if there was anything better these days, which is why I asked.

Re: Caulk by Brick and Trim?


Where brick meets trim I tend to use a clear silicone or one that goes on white and cures to clear. The latter makes it easier not to miss any spots and usually makes it paintable if needed later.

That would be a clear latex caulk. They can get milky colored again when they get wet but will again dry clear.
