Not only does the caulk go in the corners where the panels join each other, but we also put caulking around anytime we have an opening in the wall or something added to the building, like a vent hood over a vent, or the drip cap over a door, around a window through the wall, a turbine vent through the roof. Anywhere that water could potentially come through an opening, we want to make sure it’s nicely, tightly caulked.
Caulk needs to be inspected once in a while. It’s unlikely that it would ever fail. We use a very high-quality caulk, but if it were ever to pull away from the smooth fiberglass surface, it’s not a problem to fix it. You just basically cut away what’s loose and inject some new color-matched caulk in there, and smooth it off with the thumb, wipe your thumb on a rag, and it’s done.
If you ever find something that needs to be touched up, remember, you can always call us for some color-matched caulk. You shouldn’t need it because, remember, if it was built by Shelter Works, it was built for life.
