Here is the jist of my new job as a caulker: to fill the gaps in between the concrete. This is on a balcony between two patio doors.
First, look at the gap:
Stuff it with stuffing:
Use the big gun get some caulking on there:
Add more and more:
Smooth it out with high tech equipment like cedar shims (cut to size) and some watered down dish soap (it keeps the caulking from sticking to the shims...who knews???!!!)
And keep smoothing until it is an impermiable masterpiece!
Then enjoy the view from the 25th floor and knowing that someone has bought this condo/balcony for $750,000 and I get to be in this spot for a few moments and get a good view of things. (the joint I was working on is in the lower right corner)...and they are not all this nice a view, or easy...
