The selection of light colored caulk is increasing for its modern aesthetics and surface temperature, yet black caulk is still the most durable and requires less cleaning and maintenance. In the 10 years since the introduction of our light colored caulk, we have found it necessary to adapt our procedures for application, cure time, sanding and general maintenance.

To learn more about this we invite you to read our "White & Gray Caulking: Installation Guidelines" or please call one of our Product experts for more information: 941-756-0600
