Nowadays there is a wide variety of sealants available, but before choosing, you should ask yourself: what is a sealant? What is the purpose of a sealant?
The professional team at Apex Caulking explains it in this article; a sealant is an elastic caulking product that bonds two materials together. For example, a sealant can join a window frame to a concrete wall, seal the gap between two concrete panels, or the gap between your front door and the siding of your condominium.
The sealant prevents water or air infiltration through the building envelope. It ensures the best possible airtightness, prevents cold air from entering your property in winter, or heat from finding its way inside during heat waves. It is also the exterior sealant that prevents insects from making their nests in your frame. Door and window sealant provides adequate protection from the outside elements if it is of high quality, especially if it is applied by professionals like the specialists at Apex Caulking located on the South Shore.

Understanding your exterior sealing options
While there are many quality sealants available in the South Shore caulking market, Apex Caulking prefers to use silicone sealants for professional work. Discover the quality sealants used by our caulking experts:
ADSEAL DWS 4580
The Adseal 4580 series is a silicone sealant that offers constant flexibility, regardless of temperature variations. It will never melt in our heat waves and it will not crack in our coldest weather. Moreover, UV rays from the sun will not deteriorate this quality sealant. It is a silicone sealant adapted to the climate of the South Shore of Montreal.
Adseal 4580 silicone sealant can be used for exterior caulking of doors and windows of all types of buildings, but also for certain interior uses. It is an easy sealant to apply by professionals. It has a thicker consistency than other types of silicone sealants, so it is easier to spread perfectly. Adseal 4580 smells better than other silicone sealants. It is resistant to water, stains, and mildew and is easy to clean. In addition, Adseal 4580 silicone sealant will not change color over time.
The many colors offered for Adseal 4580 more than make up for the fact that it is a silicone sealant that cannot be painted. Their color offering ensures that you will find the right one to match your exterior door and window caulking.
ADSEAL LM 4600
The Adseal 4600 series is an even more flexible silicone sealant than the Adseal 4580. It is twice as flexible, allowing it to react better to temperature variations.
It is ideal for exterior caulking of doors and windows and is an interior sealant for private homes as well as commercial and industrial applications. It takes a little longer to dry than ADSEAL 4580, but it also offers a nice silicone quality and enviable durability.
