What is the purpose of caulking?
Caulking is a flexible material used to seal air leaks through cracks, gaps, or joints less than 1-quarter-inch wide between stationary building components and materials. You’ll also spend less on energy consumption which intern saves money.
A properly caulked window saves the homeowner/property an average of 25-40% on their energy costs.
Mould builds up over time when water or mildew accumulates underneath the window or in between both the exterior and interior walls. (we suggest to get your windows caulked at any point the original starts to crack)
Re-caulking should be taken seriously, as openings left untreated can affect the homeowner far down the line
Window, Door and Structual Caulking (Exterior Caulking)
The primary goal of exterior caulking is to seal your exterior openings to prevent water and air from entering the property. Only apply exterior caulking after interior openings are sealed.
