Find Entry Points

Should you use caulk or foam?

When to use caulk:

  • Cracks or gaps are smaller than 1/2″ x 1/2″
  • You need flexibility (because the joint might move)
  • Application of caulk will be visible
  • Application will be done on small, detailed areas
  • Inside or outside application

When to use foam:

  • Larger cracks/gaps
  • Hard to reach areas
  • Inside application (where there’s little to no moisture)
  • You need extra insulation in the area
