PROcaulk -"Does it Work?"

Posted: Updated:
MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

If you're a do it yourself kind of person when it comes to home repairs, the PROcaulk tool could make your handy work a little more professional looking, with a lot less aggravation.  The PROcaulk package is a three piece applicator set designed to help caulk the perfect finish for any edge.  I get some help from John Miller, who has been working part-time as a carpenter for many years.

"I've used similar tools before, and they seem to do alright.  We're going to try this out and see how it works," says John.

The kit also comes with a tube of caulk and a caulk stripping tool to remove that old caulking.  Se we get rolling with the PROcaulk.  First we use the stripping tool to clear away the old stuff.  Well, we try to use it to no avail.

Not impressed with the stripper tool, we hope for better luck with the PROcaulk edger.  After selecting the appropriate edge from the several options available, John applies caulk to the seam and puts the PROcaulk tool to work.

"Just lightly pull it across and that seems to work fairly decent," explains John.

We try it on inside corners as well as outside corners.  With a little bit of finesse, we have success!  Alone, the PROcaulk does a fine job controlling the mess.  The tool collects a good amount of excess caulk.  If you don't mind a messy finger, you can use it to apply elsewhere and edge again with the PROcaulk.

"For somebody who doesn't have a whole lot of experience with doing caulk, this product's pretty good.  I would recommend it to somebody who doesn't know a whole lot about it," John adds.

John admits it's a great new addition to the toolbox, but don't throw anything away yet.  He urges…

"You still can't beat a caulk gun-just can't beat a caulk gun.  But it does work.  I give it thumbs up."

The PROcaulk seals its way to a YES for this week's "Does it Work?" test.  The PROcaulk package, complete with eight edges, a tube of caulk, and the caulk removal tool cost us $20.
