Acoustical Caulk
« on: October 23, 2010, 02:30:43 PM »

I'm getting ready to install two 1/4 laminated glass storm windows on the exterior to help reduce some traffic noise from a busy street. I may also try the magneseal option on the interior depending on the results.

Question: Is SilenSeal acoustical caulk from the Green Glue Co. a good choice for sealing around the perimter or should I use something else?

Acoustical caulking is not designed for exterior applications, so save yourself the shipping costs and head on down to the home center.  Any high-quality exterior grade silicone caulk with good flexibility and a UV rating will do just fine.
