Caulking and Sealant

Pros and Cons
Caulking Pros & Cons
Sealant Pros & Cons
Silicone sealants are very flexible, meaning they keep a watertight seal in areas that frequently change temperatures. However, unlike caulk—they are not paintable and not as easy to clean. To clean off smudges of sealant, you will need solvent or high-pressure scraping. Also, sealant gives off potent fumes after application.
What Our Clients Say
To find out if your windows need new caulking, you should take a look at the exterior of your windows. If you can see a gap between the glass, seal, and frames—that is where further damage starts, and you need to get it fixed as soon as possible. Not doing any actions when there are apparent gaps can lead to more significant problems in the future.
The answer to this problem is resealing the gaps with caulking to prevent water damage to the interior walls, causing cracks and unnecessary wear. You can place towels as the first-aid type of action, but you should definitely get it fixed as soon as possible.
Caulking is proven to be better than rubber gaskets for sealing. Different companies use different sealing styles, but rubber gaskets have had problems with shrinking and cracking over the years, which is why our company always chooses caulking and sealant instead of rubber gaskets from the start. You can call caulking contractors to replace your rubber gasket to prevent damage.
A good quality caulking job can last up to 5 years, depending on where the window is facing. If it faces UV rays directly, you must check them every two years to make sure.
It is not necessary, but if you haven’t replaced the caulking in more than two years, you might as well replace it when you repaint your house.
We make sure we do the job right. Many caulking contractors in Calgary can overlook critical items and make mistakes like not removing old caulking and replacing it with new all-weather caulking. If the old caulking is not removed entirely, it will cause damage.
