Recaulk and repaint compromised siding
Tasks and Notes
Caulk is used to seal some siding joints against moisture intrusion. The caulk along the horizontal junction between the siding and midline trim on the east side of the house is compromised. We recommend caulking and repainting the area.
If Not Addressed
Missing, cracked, or failed caulk can allow moisture to enter the exterior at vulnerable points in the siding, trim, or windows. Moisture issues will ensue such as rot, pest damage, reduced energy efficiency and accelerated wear.
Recaulking and painting the compromised siding could cost an estimated $20 as a DIY project or $100-$150 if done professionally. These costs will fluctuate based on the actual conditions the handyman encounters. Request quotes from at least 3 professionals.Mark as complete
