Hi all,

I'm planning to refinish my front door with sikkens 7. Before I start I want to fill some gaps in it to prevent drafts and water ingress.

There is sone kind of silicone already in place, which blends in really well, any idea what it might be?

Check the pictures out for a better idea.

Cheers!

Luke

Avoid bog standard silicon, paint will never stick to it. There are modified versions like CT1 which does a brown colour but have not used it for what you need
 
Some form of exterior caulk, maybe? The stain has taken really well over it.

My thoughts exactly, it looks just like wood in some parts. Whatever is in place is flexible and had lasted a good 5 years, so would love to know what it was.

I'll have to have a look into ct1 sealant I think.

Cheers
