Removing Caulk From Siding
- Apr 09, 2018 -

Caulk  (sealant, silicone, glass silicone, glass silicone sealant) forms a seal around window and door frames to prevent water and drafts from entering your home. When caulk is applied, a bit of product may get onto the house's siding, making it look unsightly. To improve the appearance of your home, take the time to remove the dried caulk. If you happen to get wet caulk on the siding, allow it to dry before removing it.


Use a putty knife to pry away any loose caulk, which should break off of the siding easily. Work the knife under and around the caulk gently to avoid damaging the siding.


Apply a few drops of caulk remover directly to remaining caulk to soften and loosen the product.


Equip a utility knife with a new, sharp blade. Make a vertical slice into the softened caulk with the knife, being careful not to cut too deep. Peel the loose caulk away from the siding with your fingers.


Remove any stubborn bits of caulk from the siding with a pair of needle-nose pliers. Clamp the pliers' teeth onto the caulk and gently pull it off.


Clean any excess caulk or residue off of the siding with a soft, damp cloth.
