Why have your Marieville property caulked?
Living in Marieville, Quebec, the changing seasons are always followed by plenty of water coming in contact with our residential homes in the form of rain during spring, summer and fall and snow and ice during the winter. The most vulnerable parts of a structure that come into contact with water are gaps, splits and cracks, that invite water in and result in damages, rot, decay and mold.
Other problems can arise from poor caulking
When the cold season arrives, cold air can infiltrate a property through any opening in the building envelope and increase energy bills.. Small insects such lizards, flies or wasps can also enter your home if the caulking is faulty.
How do i know if my caulking is due for replacement?
The first step is to assess the current condition of your building’s caulking for signs of wear and degradation.
There is no caulking around your doors and windows
As described above, caulking is an extremely important step to protect your home. If there is little or no caulking around your doors, window and siding, it must be done as soon as possible.
Caulking is cracked, broken, dry
Over the years, elements such as cold weather, extreme heat, air pollution, the movement of a structure (buildings extract and contract) snow and rain wear out the sealants of the building. Caulking typically has to be replaced every 10-20 years depending on the caulking material.
If you notice wetness or moisture around your doors and windows, it may be a sign that your caulking is missing or failing.
Quick and easy test to evaluate your caulking joints
Poke the caulking joint with a pen or your finger. An up to date caulking joint will be flexible and bounce back. If the caulking joint is hard and dry, it’s time to replace it.
