the siding came down, and bottomed out on the garage door trim. When
the caulk failed, water seeped under that siding into the sheathing
and header. When we repaired, we slipped flashing behind that
siding. That should help "some", albeit with masonite siding (aka
sponge), it can still do a lot of damage if it gets past the caulk.
I have to believe there is better caulk than basic acrylic latex (dap
alex painters). I'm hearing the siliconized or dap ultra 230, or ge
groov, or big stretch, or white lightning, or SW 950A is an
improvement. I don't mind spending $4 or $5 a tube if I know it's
going to add value to the $1 stuff. But if I'm going to do that, I
want to chose one that truly adds value and not just marketing hype.
