Did you know? Your facility is likely susceptible to cracks, gaps, and joints that form between materials, allowing moisture and drafts to penetrate the structure.
Caulk, a waterproof filler and sealant is formulated to seal these openings to prevent the intrusion of air, water, pollution, dust, insects, and noise. At Waterproof Caulking & Restoration LLC, we specialize in waterproof caulking services designed to safeguard your building envelope.
The exterior of a property acts as a protective shell that keeps out water and pests. However, normal wear and tear caused by seasonal expansion and contraction, can cause construction materials to deteriorate over time. Old caulk can also lose its elasticity, leaving cracks and gaps that create energy waste and increases the risk of property damage due to water infiltration.
Waterproof Caulking & Restoration LLC offers all types of exterior caulking. Silicone caulking is the most widely used exterior caulking product. With a 50 percent elasticity rate, silicone caulk expands to accommodate building movement.
Exterior waterproof caulking services can be used to seal a wide range of areas including- window frames and sills, expansion joints, masonry, concrete parts, door frames, and inside corners formed by siding. Any place on your building where two dissimilar materials meet generally requires a caulk joint.
Interior waterproof caulking services protect against drafts along walls and intersections, and prevents water intrusion at plumbing fixtures. Quality latex and fire caulking can be used for a range of purposes, such as sealing vents and pipes, expansion joints, control joints, kitchen countertops, baseboard and trim, concrete floors, and tubs and showers. Interior caulking can be used wherever two different materials meet, such as around gas and electrical entrances, around air conditioners, and where brick and wood meet.
The material used to seal gaps and cracks in the home depends on the size of the openings and their location. Caulk is most suitable for gaps and cracks that are less than ¼-inch wide. The most commonly used types of waterproof caulking include:
- Bathroom Caulking – A bathroom caulk can make sinks, showers, and tubs impervious to water for many years. It can also help prevent mold, mildew, and water damage by properly sealing bathroom fixtures.
- Latex Caulking – Latex caulk adheres well to drywall, wood, and masonry. Painting over this type of caulk is also possible.
- Fire Caulking – Fire caulking, also known as fire-stop products, help seal joints and openings in fire-resistant wall and floor assemblies.
