Also caulk the space where siding meets the foundation to prevent cold from entering the house. In fact, caulk wherever two different materials meet, such as where flashing abuts concrete. A good choice for this application is a paintable 100% acrylic caulk that can adhere well to concrete and masonry or a polyurethane sealant designed for concrete and masonry.
