In new construction I am curious as to what is acceptable when it comes to caulking crown molding in the corners as well as on the sides of walls. Should every wall of crown molding need to be caulked at some point?
Caulking is the carpenters savior- it covers up all of the mistakes. A good carpenter would never need it as he would take his time and make precise cuts. Homebuilders are in a hurry to move on to the next house so little time is given to precise workmanship. You have a gripe, but it may or may not be worth the fight.
