Handy Tool Kit Series – Waterproof Silicone Caulk

Lamar-Hunt-Jr.-Caulk-300x225Leaks are serious business for a landlord.  A small leak today turns into a huge loss later on.  But not for Founder/Managing Partner Lamar Hunt Jr.  He carries a variety of leak stoppers around with him in his handy tool kit.  One such stopper is a good tube of silicone caulk.  Make sure you get the waterproof kind.  Lamar likes to carry white but clear can work just as well for stopping a leak.  Lamar prefers white because he may have to touch up caulking around a countertop or lavatory and the white matches their scheme.  However, a tube of caulk is nothing without a good caulk gun.  Get a gun that has a long metal pierce so you can start the caulk flowing if it has dried from previous use.  Also, don’t forget to place a cap on it.  If it did not come with one, you can purchase them for nothing.  Keep your caulk and gun ready for action to save you time and money.  For more real estate tips on the handy tool kit, see our blog athttp://lorettoproperties.com/.  You can also call us at 913-236-2902 if you have a property to sell.
