  • Dicor lap sealant non lev non sag

    Silly question. I just finished caulking the vertical seam above gutters with Dicor. I have about 3/4's of a tube left. My question is can the non leveling, non sag be used on the roof around vents and front and rear caps.

    Sure, it just won't smooth itself out like the self-leveling.

      Thanks. Is there a secret to keep this stuff from hardening in the tube?

        The only thing I have found is to use it. I tried about everything that I could find.

          You can try this. It’s been working for me for many years. Clean the tip off well. Take a strip of decent black electrical tape and put over the tip in two directions. I then wrap some more tape around the caulk tube stalk and up above the end of the tip. Sounds harder than it is. Make sure the tape is pressed tight. I’ve used caulk put away like this 2 years later with no issues. Dicor included. I have 5 tubes of partially used caulk sitting on my shelf, wrapped like this. I’ve tried the nail in the end, and electrical twist connector. They are a waste of time.

            one caution .... just make sure that silicone based caulk is not used on a rubber roof .... it will literally eat a hole in the roof material

                I have some little rubber seals that look and act like a condom. Just roll it on the tip. Should be perfect but it doesn't work, SIGH

                  The obvious question is what are you using the little "condoms" for?

                    They are labeled as caulk tube seals but my description explains it without a picture.

                      Saw them a few months ago. Was thrilled with what I believed would be a perfect - reusable solution. Bought 'em... came home... tried them... FAIL.
