On a couple of windows on the cooler side of the house, mould is
growing on the frame sealant. This was a branded sealer which I put
in about 4 years ago, as the original was mouldy. Anyone know of the
most effective sealer to use indoors, for the joint between UPVC
frame and plaster of the wall, which will not let mould grow on it?
Does it have to be silicone? - cannot overpaint that. As the windows
are rather large - '60's house - its a bit of a chore raking the old
stuff out. Any advice appreciated.
Agree with previous posting - silicone stuff is only suitable for
waterproofing showers etc. and its a b*gger to get off if you ever need to!
Good quality water based frame sealants will typically have mould inhibitors
anyway (the Unibond stuff I'm currently using in my bathroom for that
purpose certainly does). It does get grubby over time though and best
Try normal frame sealant, no need for silicone sealant it's horrible
Frame sealant is water based and paintable so you will be able to
paint the reveals right up to the window frames.
