Where would I use a caulk gun?
Silicone caulking projects usually involve sealing wet areas such as bathrooms, kitchens, roofs and gutters. This stops any leakage and mould related to excess water. Fillers are best used for caulking skirting boards, and ceilings and sealing up any cracks in walls.
You can also use a caulking gun with construction adhesives to bond most common building materials such as timber, ceramics, metal and masonry.
The best way to apply silicone, fillers or adhesives with your caulking gun is to hold it to the area that needs to be filled at a 45-degree angle. Dispense the product by using an even pressure when pulling the trigger.
