Con­crete and ma­sonry:

Choose a spe­cialty caulk

The Family Handyman - - BEST PRO TIPS -

A caulk spe­cially for­mu­lated for con­crete and ma­sonry will out­per­form gen­eral-pur­pose prod­ucts. Most con­crete and ma­sonry sealants are polyurethane or hy­brid formulas. But one acrylic la­tex prod­uct, Slab, also per­forms well, es­pe­cially on con­crete cracks that move a lot. Some con­crete and ma­sonry caulks are self­level­ing and can be used only on level sur­faces.
