Caulking: Not The Kid From Home Alone

So what exactly is Caulk? According to Wikipedia, caulking is described as several different processes to seal joints or seams in various structures and certain types of piping. The oldest form of caulking is used to make the seams in wooden boats or ships watertight, by driving fibrous materials into the wedge-shaped seams between planks. A related process was formerly employed to join sections of cast iron sewerage pipe.

When it comes to caulk provided in our Cabinet Hardware inventory is used for installing or repairing countertops. We sell Color Matching Laminate Caulk by three great companies: Wilsonart, Seamfil, and Colorflex. Below is a review of all three:
