I have a “fiber composit” lap siding home and the gaps between the ends of some of the siding boards drives me nuts to look at.
I have caulked but it doesn’t seem to help much (falls out or tears). My neighbor has the same siding but he has what look like plastic gizmos wedged into the gaps and painted over. The “gizmos” overlap the gaps.
I’ve tried Lowes but the only thing they have similar, are metal gap fillers that are put on prior to putting the siding on. They have flages on the back side…. so I can’t install those.
Am I nuts or are there actually plastic gapfillers with “teeth” that can be used after the fact?
I’m going to have my house painted in a month or so and would like to fix the gaps.
