Why caulking is important...

This is the process of sealing joints or seams in various structures and some types of piping. The material, caulk, may also be referred to as a sealant.

  • Choose the right caulk. Caulk that keeps air and water out over time is a necessity when sealing around the home. For long lasting seal, we choose permanentaly waterproof, flexible, shrink/crack proof one-part urethane sealant. This is important to us, because if air and water seep through gaps left by cracked caulk it can eventually lead to water damage, and mold growth.
  • Cleaning the surface. Removing old caulk, dirt, and loose particles with a caulk removing tool followed with a precise wipe, using a cloth and caulk primer to ensure the space is clean. Masking tape can then be applied to either side of the joint to create a straight edge (removed immediately after caulk application).
  • Preparing the tube and sealing. The nozzle will be cut to desired bead size. Using a caulking gun, we insert the cartridge. With an even and consistent pressure we control the rate at which the caulk leaves the tube and apply a smooth seal to spaces inside and outside of the home.
  • Smooth the caulk and seal. Using a wet caulk smoothing tool, within the two to five minuet mark of application. We use the tool to create a smooth and clean look of the caulk.
