I once heard Dr. Joseph Lstiburek use the term “pookie”, which made me chuckle. He was referring to a fluid type product used to seal something. In construction, we use a lot of different caulks, sealants, and adhesives, all of which are available in some sort of tube or bucket. A walk through the caulking isle at any hardware store or lumber yard can make your head spin, what to use when and where.
