Type of caulking to use


Hi all

What type of caulking do I use to seal around garage door sides and top seal?
Silicon, latex or something adhesive?

Thanks.

Depending on the gap size, I would use garage door weather stripping they sell at the big box stores in big rolls. Looks better imo. Or you can use a clear paintable flexible sealant. Just a suggestion.

Don't use silicone. Any paintable caulk will work. Just buy something with some stretchability.
