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.

  • Into the realm of online trading, drawn by promises of financial independence and opportunity, little did I anticipate the harrowing journey that lay ahead. Armed with enthusiasm and a modest investment of $12,500 from my debit card, I embarked on what I believed would be a path to prosperity. Instead, I found myself ensnared in a web of deceit and disillusionment, as the trading platform I entrusted with my funds betrayed my trust. The initial allure of easy profits quickly gave way to suspicion and despair when I realized I was unable to withdraw even a penny from my account. Despite my relentless efforts, the platform remained unyielding, leaving me stranded in a state of financial limbo. Shock turned to anger when I discovered that $12,500, my hard-earned savings, had been siphoned away without recourse or explanation. My quest for justice led me down a path littered with cautionary tales and bitter testimonies—negative reviews that painted a stark portrait of deceit and exploitation by similar online trading platforms. Had I heeded these warnings, perhaps I could have averted the anguish that now weighed heavily upon me. Yet, amidst the despair, a glimmer of hope emerged in the form of recourse through regulatory bodies and the expertise of cybersecurity professionals. In my pursuit of restitution, I promptly reported the malfeasance to the UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), hoping to hold the perpetrators accountable and prevent others from falling prey to similar schemes. Concurrently, guided by recommendations from fellow victims, I turned to Wizard Web Recovery—a beacon of hope in the murky waters of cybercrime and financial fraud.Wizard Web Recovery swiftly became my ally in the fight for justice, offering not only technical expertise but also a steadfast commitment to reclaiming what was rightfully mine.

They imparted invaluable lessons on recognizing the red flags of fraudulent schemes, advocating for stringent security measures such as two-factor authentication and vigilant monitoring of online transactions.

As I reflect on this chapter in my financial journey, I am reminded of the importance of due diligence and skepticism in the digital age. The allure of quick profits must be tempered with caution and informed decision-making.
