    Where to Apply Acoustical Caulk:

    Acoustical caulk should be used around the perimeters of walls, floors and ceiling before tape and spackle is applied. When installing one layer of drywall, caulking should preferably be done between seams. There is no need to caulk the seams when two layers of drywall are installed as long as care is taken to stagger the seams. Additionally, caulk around electrical boxes and recessed lighting before applying the plates. Acoustical caulk should also be used around windows and doors before installing moldings.

    Before Starting to Caulk:

    Ensure that all surface requiring sealing are cleaned, dried and free of debris.
