Caulking a window joint in a Lennar homeWhat is one of the most-used items both during the construction of your Lennar home and after you’ve moved in? If you guessed caulk, you’re correct!

Caulk is an extremely useful substance that has many different purposes. During construction, it is used to seal certain openings, prevent water penetration, and provide a neat finish in various areas – both on the interior and exterior of your new Lennar home. Over time, caulk deteriorates and will need to be repaired or replaced. This is one of the main homeowner maintenance items you will need to be aware as your home ages. Luckily, caulk is relatively inexpensive and easy to apply.

This section of the Lennar Home Care Video explains what caulk is used for and where it is applied, which areas you should inspect regularly for caulk deterioration, and gives a step-by-step demonstration on how to replace caulk. Click here to view this video to learn more about these topics and watch the instructional caulking demonstration.

As always, if you need help or have a question about your home, please contact our Lennar Customer Care Team for assistance.
