Ex­te­rior sid­ing and trim:

Choose a hy­brid or polyurethane

The Family Handyman - - BEST PRO TIPS -

On your home’s ex­te­rior, high-qual­ity caulk is crit­i­cal—it locks out wa­ter, pro­tect­ing your home against rot and peel­ing paint. Al­though some in­ex­pen­sive acrylic la­tex caulks are rated for ex­te­rior use, we rec­om­mend hy­brid caulks be­cause they of­fer bet­ter ad­he­sion and flex­i­bil­ity. For match­ing the ap­pear­ance of ma­te­ri­als like stucco or rough-sawn wood, we like Vulkem, a tex­tured polyurethane.
