The Basics of Caulks and Sealants

The problem is that there are so many sealants on the market that it can be difficult to choose between the two. In general, bathroom sealants do two things: seal against the ingress of moisture and create a comfortable bond between lighting fixtures and the materials used to finish the walls. 

Careful detailing will largely minimize the seal's reliance on both functions, but there are still times when it's needed. If you want to make your house caulk free then you need to find the best caulking provider.

While there are about a dozen different types of household sealants, bathroom seals fall into three main categories: latex, acrylic latex, and silicone.

Latex sealants are easy to apply and easy to clean because they are water-based and hold color well. However, they are not particularly waterproof or flexible, making them a poor choice for general bathroom applications.

Acrylic latex coatings are more flexible than regular latex and usually come in a fungicide-treated bathroom version. The fungicide will gradually leak from the skin over about 5 to 15 years, helping to prevent mold from growing during this time. 

These seals are a little more expensive than regular latex seals, but they can be painted and work well as regular fillers, so they are well worth the extra money.
