    Unless he uses a flexible seam sealer. It won't look quite as nice, but at least it won't crack out.

    BTW, good score. :thumbsup:

    It's a little more expensive for the seam sealer, but that's what the manufacturers use. I'd use silicone if I didn't give a shit. My only worry would be paint sticking to it for the long term. Filled seams are usually right at eye level, and cracking sucks.
