Caulk or not?


I just had an addition put up with vinyl siding and Andersen windows. The contractor didnt caulk between the J channel and the windows, he says he doesnt so if any water does get in there it can dry out and with Andersens install flanges, its ok.
Should I caulk to prevent water from getting in there in the first place?

You will probably get several different answers, but I always caulk
these areas. I use a paintable white silicone caulk. A few cents more per tube, but well worth it.
