Why do I need to maintain caulking?
Caulking provides two beneficial purposes. The first is to cosmetically enhance the appearance of a project by closing gaps and creating a smoother transition; The second (and most important) is to provide a seal between two areas or surfaces to keep water from getting into the building or house.
Sealants are the most widely used waterproofing material. Most structures rely heavily on joint sealants for protection from water intrusion and the negative impact moisture can have on structural elements. In cases where there is failure of the existing material due to age, improper installation, inadequate movement capabilities, or poor joint design, removal of the existing sealant is required. Everclear Enterprises, Inc. understands the importance of selecting the correct material for each particular condition and application. We take into consideration not only the environmental conditions and anticipated movement associated with the location in which the sealant is being installed, but also the chemistry and properties of the material we are going to install, so as to ensure that we provide an appropriate solution to our client.
