    Hi guys, I had some windows fitted a couple of years ago. Stood on the sofa today I have seen what a shocking job of sealing up they've done!

    There's a draft coming through for sure. I have a cartridge of intumescent decorators caulk (firemate) open and a tcartridge of unibond bath sealant open. In the interests of saving the planet and being a skinflint would either of these be suitable for filling the hole of should I buy a cartridge of something specific for.the job? Cheers

    If there is a chance of moisture I would use the sealant otherwise the caulk.
