    This guide from Silva seems really useful, but it's not that specific:
    http://www.silvatimber.co.uk/media/pdfs/cladding/how-to-install-western-red-cedar-cladding.pdf

    It says:
    "Use high-performance acrylic-latex, acrylic, acrylic-silicone,
    polyurethane, polysulfide or terpolymer rubber caulks or
    sealants to seal gaps around windows, doors, corners, and
    other exterior joints that are exposed to potential water
    intrusion. "

    That covers almost every caulk out there! What caulking/sealant do people here usually use for cedar cladding?

    Cheers
