Just a quick question. I have installed a chair rail. I caulked the top part but was wondering if I should caulk the bottom part too? You can see the bottom part when standing, though. Need an expert advise.
Yes, I would caulk below the chair rail. No rule says you have to, but let personal pride in your own craftsmanship guide your actions.
The payoff will come some day when a guest in your home comments on the quality of your finish, your attention to detail — even in places people would normally never notice — and you’ll feel a great sense of pride.
Good luck with the chair rail!
