I have exposed brick and I need to seal the joint between the wood trim of my window and the brick. I am also sealing where the brick meets the baseboards in the interior of my apt. OSI Quad has a "clay" available at home depot which is a perfect match. Not only is the color perfect, but it also has a matte quality and is not so glossy as other products. The problem is that it says "exterior use only" and is harmful if inhaled. If it was not the middle of the winter I guess I could open my windows for 2 weeks, but its 20 degrees outside. Are there other products that can be used that are both clay, not overly glossy and can be used inside.
I want to replace the windows along the front of the house. The rooms are the kitchen, living room, dining room, and a master bedroom. I don't understand the ratings on the tag and whether I need the most expensive ones in the store. Can you suggest a way to get windows that save on heating bills without having to use our entire remodeling budget?
