Keep Your Caulking Warm – On the House

Keep Your Caulking Warm

By on May 4, 2014

Gabriel Daniel Fahrenheit, who invented mercury thermometers and after whom our temperature measurement scale is named, was born in 1686.

With temperatures steadily rising, it’s time again for exterior repairs and maintenance. But some caulking and adhesives thicken and become harder to use when the mercury dips a little.

To remedy this, we Carey Brothers get a jump on cool weather first by keeping such caulking and adhesives inside –where they remain warm and toasty. Then, when it’s even a teensy bit cool outside, we slide a piece of foam-pipe insulation over the tube and/or gun to keep it warm and pliable and at a workable temperature.
