8 reasons to replace old window caulking
There are many reasons why homeowners should inspect and replace their old door and window caulking, especially if regular inspections have not been done and the house caulking is already old and worn out. Here are 8 reasons why you should replace your window caulking without delay:
1. Prevent water damage.
Water damage can cost thousands of dollars in repairs. If your window caulking joints show signs of cracking, breaking or deterioration, water may increasingly seep through the path it finds. Water infiltration will gradually damage wood, concrete, bricks and mortar. Little by little, building components affected by the water will be weakened or begin to deteriorate, and eventually, breakage may require extremely costly work.

3. Protecting your health and that of your family.
One of the main purposes of window caulking is to prevent the invasion of moisture. Water damage can lead to mould and fungi appearance, responsible for allergies, asthma, lung problems, and other health concerns. Functional window caulking prevents water and moisture from infiltrating your home.
4. Improving the appearance of your home.
Professional window caulking will keep your windows looking new and fresh. During a window caulking replacement, the visible joints are smoothed, small defects are erased, and the entire unit is cleaned to obtain a beautiful visual appearance. A professional caulking company will also make sure that the window joints colours are matched to perfection, thus enhancing the house’s appearance.

5. Increasing the value of your home.
During the process of selling your property, buyers may require an inspection of the property by a home inspector. Many realtors can testify that many homes on the market don’t pass home inspection due to the neglected appearance of door and window caulking.
In addition, and as previously mentioned, selling a well-maintained property with a fresh appearance is far less complicated. The value of your home may be increased by showcasing effective/professional window caulking.

It is essential to prevent the intrusion of insects and/or rodents into a house/building. Cracks and gaps around your windows, doors and walls will attract them if the window caulking or general caulking is damaged.
7. Window Caulking can limit carbon dioxide and dust intrusion.
If you live close to a highway or high-traffic road, dust, air pollution and carbon dioxide may enter your home through gaps and cracks around your windows and doors. A well-insulated dwelling prevents these pollutants from entering.
