Where stucco meets wood window trim

charlesmartorelliMarch 2, 2013

I just finshed installing new windows and adding wood trim around the windows. On a few of the windows the trin is not flush with the side of the house. I was planing to add some caulk between the stucco and wooden trim so water will not lay on the wood after it rains. Is caulk the correct stuff to use, I see on most of the preimun calks stay flexible. Would I want the caulk to be hard after it sets.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

You want the caulk to stay flexible.
Hardened caulk has no 'give' and will crack and/or pull away with thermal expansion and contraction.
