The problem of caulking in cold conditions has been a constant challenge for craftsmen in the construction sector. There is a solution that allows the caulk to flow freely and sticks well, but it must be kept warm enough for the temperature sensitive items to work efficiently. This problem has been solved by the Caulk Warmer.
Warm caulk is easier to work with and fills more easily. This results in better adhesion and sealing. You can also avail professional caulking assistance to do caulking in your house. The options available to keep caulk warm up until now have been innovative, but inefficient at best. Caulking contractors tell many stories about how they kept caulk warm or warmed up for days.

These methods include keeping caulk warm in a bucket of water and running trucks frequently during the day with the tubes inside the defrost vents. A contractor even placed a gallon-sized can of metal under his truck's hood, close to but not touching the engine. Before leaving for work, he put about five tubes caulk into the can.
This allowed the engine heat to warm the tubes. Glaziers are perhaps the most ingenious of all. They sometimes place extra tubes under their arms while trying to keep warm. Caulk manufacturers once sold large heated boxes that kept caulk and other temperature sensitive products warm on-site.
However, they were too bulky and costly and are no longer available. The Caulk Warmer is now a better option. It combines a lightweight economical heat source with an adjustable heat reflecting shield to keep heat in the bag. This keeps caulk and other items warm.
