Do I need to remove all the current caulking in the problem area? A video would be helpful you have one . ANHWP July 28, 2022 at 4:54 pm Hi Pat, thanks for your comment. You should remove all the old caulking material and make sure the area is clean before applying the new caulking. New over old will not bind or seal properly and will fail to provide a good weather-tight seal. Comments are closed.
