Sell House Fast - Lafayette LA: Have you already listed your house on the market for sale? Perhaps you are planning to do so in the near future. You’ll want the house to look as though it is in top condition and has been well cared for throughout the years you’ve owned it. A tube or two of simple and inexpensive caulk can be your best friend here.

Quick and Easy Repairs with CaulkMany things will be repaired by a few squirts of caulk and you can apply it straight out of the tube. A caulking gun is nice to have and is very inexpensive to purchase. The tube fits right into it and you will use the trigger mechanism to apply the caulk instead of squeezing the tube. There may be gaps along the tops of your walls or along the bottom at the top of the baseboards. This is a good place to apply caulking.

Molding cracks can also be filled with caulk as well as any places that you find in the house that have separated or become gaps due to the shifting of the house over the years and the shrinking of the wood.Use it around the tub and sink in the bathroom. Old caulking can become discolored over time and a new shot of caulk will give it a new look. Caulk is inexpensive enough to fit almost any budget so go around and see what you can find. You will be surprised at how much better your rooms look when you’ve filled in the gaps and cracks.

When you go to the hardware or home improvement store to buy your supplies, you will find a whole vast variety of caulk.It comes in silicon and latex. You can get it in black, white, and clear depending on what you will be caulking.White along a white ceiling, baseboards, window sills, and tubs is the best color to use when you are making an impression. Clear caulk will seal the cracks, but won’t look like they are sealed as the caulk is transparent. Ask the clerk at the store where you shop for the best caulk to use for the job you will be doing.

If you go to a big discount store you might have just a few choices. In the bathroom where there’s water flowing, use silicon in white. For baseboards and other areas not in common contact with water, latex will do.

Sometimes "quick" fixes aren't the answer to a problem. Masking material defects can place the homeowner at considerable legal risk. It's often best to seek the services of a local professional contractor or real estate firm to assess the situation and render advice or repairs.
