Bad Caulking

Dawn Smith

A pale finger with purple fingernail polish indicates a woman’s finger pointing at caulking on a log home. This image shows two horizontal logs that seem to be in a state of disrepair. The logs have copper stains and mismatched caulking, suggesting they need to be maintained better. There are clear signs of damage, such as cracks, missing pieces of stain, and chipped wood on the face. The caulking around the logs near the trim also detaches from the wood, indicating that it was not appropriately applied. The caulking is of two if not three, different colors. Overall, this is a clear example of poor quality by a contractor who needed to take the time to restore the log home properly.
