Caulking Wood Siding and Trims

Caulking is a material used for sealing joints in various substrates. The benefits of caulking are to provide an aesthetically pleasing finish to the substrate and to prevent moisture from penetrating, causing deterioration. However Caulking is not suitable for use on all substrates and when used on wood siding, can actually cause more harm than good, as shown below

Failed Caulking On Wood Siding

Caulking is not recommended for use on butt-joints on wood siding, as siding boards are designed to expand and contract with the elements in ways that the caulking cannot. For example, when heated in the sunlight the wood siding will expand both sideways and outwards.

This was a problem found during an inspection of painting preparation work on a recent repaint project. There was evidence of the caulking failing between all of the butt joints (see image above). The use of caulking was an attempt to correct other issues with the building, however, the caulking failed causing moisture to become trapped behind it resulting in wood rot and failure of both the coating and the caulking.

Another area that Caulking should not be used is on trim boards that sit on top of the siding. On most homes the trim goes up after the siding is installed, which creates a large gap that should not be caulked. It requires strip flashing instead of caulking to deflect moisture from behind.

The air needs to circulate behind these boards and the opening allows for any trapped moisture to be released. The bottoms of sidings boards should not be caulked for the same reasons.

Caulking should be used sparingly on any external wood siding projects, and as seen in the inspection described above, and not on wood butt-joints because of the expansion and contraction in the elements.

The caulking was used in an attempt to correct other issues, but it failed and offered no protection resulting in the costly requirement of having to replace all of the deteriorated wood siding and trim.


Information for Architects / Specifying Authorities

The Inspection and Guarantee program offered by APCA to Specification Authorities and Owners provides a two year guarantee of the workmanship and materials employed by the Painting Contractor who follows the qualifications and standards set out in the MPI Architectural Painting Specification Manual.

The APCA Guarantee Program was designed by the industry for the industry and provides a tool for APCA members to demonstrate quality and excellence of their work.

The goal of the inspection service is to provide all parties concerned, i.e. architects, project managers, painting contractors, and general contractors, with detailed and accurate reports, documenting procedures and products utilized in the successful completion of any and all painting and decorating contracts.

The service will monitor projects from start up to lock out, reporting abnormalities or variations from the specification to the Specifying Authority/Owner. All reports will be submitted at regular intervals, and a “Final Inspection” will be delivered prior to the APCA Guarantee being issued.

Here is how it works:

  1. APCA is notified of an APCA Guarantee job that is specified
  2. Contractor/Spec writers will notify APCA who won the bid
  3. APCA confirms that the painting contractor is a member
  4. APCA receives Request for Assignment of an Inspector with partial fee calculated on base contract amount
  5. An inspector is appointed
  6. APCA receives Product Submittal form, 09900 section and room finish schedule
  7. Inspections are carried out once products are approved and first installment fee is paid
  8. When inspections are finished, a deficiency list signed off, and final fee is paid, a Certificate of Guarantee and inspection booklets are provided to the owner, architect, and paint contractor. These booklets include all inspection reports, contact information, paint samples, technical data and maintenance requirements. (Final fees are due at the midpoint of the job.)

The program also provides no-cost industry standard technical advice and assistance to the Consultant, the objective being to assist in obtaining a superior and consistent quality performance, project after project.

Please notify us by phone, fax, or e-mail when you are specifying an APCA job in the future to aid our staff in facilitating the Certificate of Guarantee inspection process.

We value your comments, and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Certification Coordinator, Connie Pruden, at the APCA office.

Here is how it works:

  1. APCA is notified of an APCA Guarantee job that is specified
  2. Contractor/Spec writers will notify APCA who won the bid
  3. APCA confirms that the painting contractor is a member
  4. APCA receives a Request for Inspector (2017 Form) with partial fee calculated on base contract amount
  5. An inspector is appointed
  6. APCA receives Product Submittal Form, 09900 section and room finish schedule
  7. Inspections are carried out once products are approved and first installment fee is paid
  8. When inspections are finished, a deficiency list signed off, and final fee is paid, a Certificate of Guarantee and inspection booklets are provided to the owner, architect, and paint contractor. These booklets include all inspection reports, photographs, contact information, paint samples, technical data and maintenance requirements. (Final fees are due at the midpoint of the job.)

The program also provides no-cost industry standard technical advice and assistance to the Consultant, the objective being to assist in obtaining a superior and consistent quality performance, project after project.

First, complete the APCA Request for Inspector (2017 Form). Then provide the Product Submittal Form and use the checklist for your own records and information. The intent of this checklist is to guide you through the Certification process.

You will notice the non-member fee on the Request for Inspector Form. This indicates a higher payment and it must be noted that you will not receive an APCA Guarantee as a non-member, only the qualified inspections. Therefore, if you are the contractor who won the APCA job then you will need to process membership with APCA prior to starting the job.

Please notify us by phone, fax, or e-mail when you are bidding an APCA job in the future to aid our staff in facilitating the Certificate of Guarantee inspection process. We value your comments, and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Certification Coordinator, Connie Pruden, at the APCA office.
