My tub is plastered into the wall with caulking. Recently, I have noticed that the caulking is dissapating and loosening up the tub. Fortunately, I have not see a change in my water flow. I want to


Unfortunately this is usually caused by a leak and the drywall is wet , and or the tub is sinking due to water damage to floor. If the drywall is solid then use a utility knife to remove old caulk, then after area is clean apply silicone caulk around the tub. apply neatly but with plenty enough to fill the void. I then spray a dish soap an water mixture on the calk then remove excess by pressing thumb down and sliding it long caulking. This presses it into the gap and also removes excess, which leaves you a neatly caulked tub.

Cant move caulking gun handle


There should be a thumb release on the shaft at the handle end, press with your thumb and then pull back with the other hand on the shaft. If you have a used tube in the gun, it could be that some of the caulk came out the inside of the tube and hardened so that you cannot pull back the shaft, you will now have to cut the tube off with a utility knife to remove the old dried caulk

Applied DAP latex with silicone caulk around exterior window sill in dry condition. No rain for 7 days. Rained last night and tiny string of bubbles surfaced on full length of caulk application. Paint:...


Try using the dap window caulk. The window was probably washed just prior to you applying caulk and was not totally dry. The dap I mentioned should work in this situation. I used to use the cheapest caulk I could find...mistake! There are different caulks that do different things, add moisture and... I'm sure you get the pix.
My answers are short and sweet. Common sense mostly. If you are trying to get something for nothing...Don't waste my time! Remember if something sounds to good to be true that it usually is. I've spent many years of my life trying to cheat the system and was pretty good at it. This all changed when I discovered that people were doing the same thing to me. What comes around, goes around. Karma! Now I assist people in making win-win deals...that are legit!

How do i use the Stanley caulk gun?


All Caulk gun are used the same way no matter which model you have, hear are the instractions
  • Load a tube of caulk into a caulking gun, making sure it's well seated at both ends

  • Use a utility knife to cut the tip of the spout. Cut off as little as possible, taking into consideration the size of the 'bead' of caulk you need. Some people like to cut the spout at an angle, while others cut it straight; it doesn't make a big difference

  • If using caulk that comes in a cardboard tube, look for a second seal at the base of the spout. Insert a nail or awl through the spout to puncture the seal. Many caulking guns come with such a puncturing device. (Plastic tubes usually don't have a second, inner seal.)
