Matte Caulk for Fireplace

Posted by jburr827 (My Page) on

Hey Everyone,

I recently caulked around my fireplace (where the tile meets the unit) with heat resistant caulk but am unhappy with the results as the caulk dried with a very glossy finish. There is no trim kit available so the caulk will be visible.

Is anyone aware of a caulk for this application that dries with a matte or flat finish? Would we have to use heat resistant caulk in this location or could we get away with the matching caulk for the grout?

I would appreciate any input I could get.
