Hi Alexis,

A closed backer rod is a rope that we recommend to place in a check, crack or seam to fill up the void. This way you are using less of the caulking.

If you would like I would be happy to send you some information about this product.

Feel free to email me at info@iwoodc.com and I would be happy to get this right out to you.

Have a great day!
Kelly
