Caulking provides two beneficial purposes. The first beneficial purpose of caulking is to cosmetically enhance the appearance of a project by closing existing gaps which creates a visually smoother transition. The second (and most important) is to provide a seal between two areas or surfaces to keep water from getting into the building or, during the winter months, freezing between the two surfaces which can damage either or both of the adjacent materials.
