Caulking Tutorial

Caulking is one of those things when working on a house project that might seem unnecessary or even a little daunting to do. It can get messy really quickly and when you are at the end of a project, you kind of just want to be done and don't really want one more thing to do. Caulking can totally change up a space though and give it a finished look whether it's baseboards, trim, moulding, staircase, shiplap, board and batten, etc. It's also great on bathroom projects and outdoor projects. I'm going to show you how to caulk baseboards and this is the easiest way I have found to do it. With just a little practice, you'll be a pro in no time! 

Supplies Needed:

Caulk - This is the kind I use the most. I prefer white over clear because it's easier to see what you are doing. You need to make sure that it is paintable. 

Caulking Gun 

Spray Bottle 

Old Rags - You'll need to get them wet

Scissors To Cut The Tip Off Tube Of Caulk

Start by prepping your area, make sure to wipe everything down so there is no dirt or dust. Then you are going to load your tube of caulk into the caulking gun and tighten it until it's locked in.

Once the tube is loaded, you can cut the tip off the tube - you will want to cut as small of a hole as possible and make sure to cut it at an angle. The bigger the hole, the more caulk will come out which can result in a big mess! You can always cut the hole a little bigger if you need more, but it's best to start out small. 

 

When your tube is ready to go, you simply push down the handle and run the tip along the edge of the baseboard where the baseboard meets the wall. You can do as little or as much at one time that you'd like. I usually do about 10-15 inches before I stop and do the next step. 

 

Grab your spray bottle and squirt the line of caulk that you just laid down and then run your finger over the line to remove any excess. Take your wet rag and run the rag over the line to smooth it out and to dry up any water. Wipe your finger on a different wet rag and move onto caulking the next line. I like to keep one rag to wipe my finger and one rag to smooth and wipe the area I'm working on. 

You can start the next line right where you left off and once you follow the steps above it will all blend in seamlessly. 

These baseboards that I'm working on will need a coat of paint after I finish caulking, but depending on your project this could be your very last step and you could be done. Check out the before and after below - such big difference! 

I've had quite a few people reach out and ask me about caulking so hopefully this tutorial helps! Shoot me an email or DM if you have any questions. For more links of our favorite products that we love, check out our Amazon page.

  • As a victim, I was ripped off when I invested in cryptocurrencies because I got into the wrong hands and had $845,000 in BTC stolen from me. I was about to lose up after hearing that it couldn’t be found or recovered, but fortunately I came across an online post about a recovery specialist named Jeanson James Ancheta wizard. I contacted him and did some work with them just to give it a try. I never thought it would be feasible, but to my greatest amazement, they were able to recover $545,860 of the money that was taken from me.

    Hello everyone, I wish to share this information with the public . It’s advisable not to trade with an individual or a bitcoin investment platform if you are not sure about their reputation. A few months back, I was seeking an investment opportunity but I ended up being scammed of $187,000 in Bitcoins.
    I was depressed and disappointed in myself until an article popped up about Captain WebGenesis, a cryptocurrency recovery company that helps scam victims get back their lost or stolen Crypto, and to my surprise, they were able to recover almost all the funds I had lost. I’m sharing this out of excitement as I know there are many people out there who must have had an encounter with these swindlers.
