That Geocel caulk is good. On Monday I used it where the staircase stringing had dropped and left a half inch gap between the stringing and the wall, double caulked it with the geocel, emulsioned the next day, been there this morning and no crazing at all which is pretty good considering the size of the gap, it goes off very quickly.

I'm not on commission BTW. :mrgreen:

Thanks for all the advice.I hadn't got round to ordering anything but had some spare time this morning to do some caulking and I found a tube of geocel painters mate caulk kicking around the garage so used that.

:lol:

It's just nice to have a dec centre who price match, have a consistent, non-variable (and healthy) discount, bonus deals , human beings behind the counter and a kettle too.

Way better than those oafs across the way at Dulux, who frankly didn't know the time of day. conf:

Agreed on the Siroflex. Good gear :thumbright:


Rather annoyingly Toolstation have stopped selling the standard Siroflex caulk which was amazeballs and have replaced it with some Everbuild crud. Same story with the Siroflex expanding foam. Only the everbuild replacement for that... well, there aren't words for how bad that is :angryfire:

The real trick with any caulk is for it to dry overnight before painting.


Agreed, the shrinking all happens during drying/ curing so just be patient.
