 Special Tip

Don’t care to paint your caulk? Use eXact color every time you need to caulk around custom painted surfaces. Our custom color caulk matches paint colors, won’t crack over the caulk like paint does, and is just plain easier all around. (Yes, it’s a shameless plug for our product, but really: who wants the extra step of painting every time?)
