What do I do if the chinking is blistering?
Blisters are a phenomenon commonly found in the caulking and sealant industry. They form when moisture from the chinking accumulates in voids beneath the bead and gets hot from the sun.
Blisters appear as “bubbles” in the material and vary widely in size. Shield freshly chinked walls from the sun with white tarps. If this cannot be done, keep a close eye on the chinked wall for the first 24-48 hours. If a blister begins to develop, puncture a hole in the middle of it, and gently push the material back into place. 3-5 days later, touch-up the repaired blister with chinking..
