The importance of caulking your Longueuil home or business
Caulking is used to seal gaps and cracks found in the envelope of your building, around your doors, windows, siding and other areas around your building. Gaps and holes allow the intrusion of water, air and insects into your building that can cause the following damages:
Repairing water damage can be extremely expensive and time consuming. Extreme temperatures and different weather conditions can damage the seals around your doors and windows and allow water to leak through. If noticed on time, water infiltrations can be terminated at an early stage by simply replacing your old caulking.
If not treated on time, water damage can result in mold and rot that may travel through air ducts and can cause poor indoor air quality and illness, as well as heavy damage to your home.
Loss of energy
Applying caulking around your doors, siding and windows lowers home energy bills by stopping air leaks, which otherwise allow heat to escape in the winter.
Sealing cracks and small gaps will help prevent small insects such as ants, lady bugs and bees from entering your home during spring and summer.
Signs that your caulking has to be replaced
There are many signs that can indicate when it’s time to replace your caulking.
Look at the caulking joints around your doors and windows. Expired caulking will look dry, cracked and broken in some places. It may look yellow or simply have a faded shade. The caulking will have no flexibility.
Poor quality caulking
Low grade caulking material that may have been applied unprofessionally in recent years may have holes and air bubbles along the caulking joints. In such a case, it will need to be replaced.
Do you feel cold air currents when sitting by your windows? Cold air drafts coming through your closed doors and windows are likely the result of failed caulking.
Dampness around your windows
You may want to inspect your caulking when noticing water and moisture infiltration.
Insects near your window
The appearance of spider webs outside your window may suggest that your home is losing energy, as spiders prefer building their webs near warm and dry spots.
When was the last time your building was caulked or inspected for caulking?
If you are not sure whether your caulking is up to date, try to determine the date of your last home inspection or when the last time your Longueuil home, condo or business was caulked. Loose glass panes that move or rattle in a window may be an indication that the caulking is expired or missing.
