Commercial caulking contractors install a waterproof filler and sealant that’s formulated to seal cracks, gaps, and joints that form between different materials on the exterior of your commercial building. It prevents water, air, and pest intrusion and can also help reduce noise, dust, and pollution from entering the building’s interior. The type of caulking they choose to is dependent on the type of materials, the job it needs to perform, and what the client wants. Good commercial caulking contractors will be able to maximize their client’s budget by recommending a product that will last as long as possible given the application.
Like most commercial building materials, caulking’s lifespan depends on several things, including:
- The type of caulking or sealant used.
- How much direct sunlight the caulking gets.
- Whether the caulking was applied correctly to begin with.
As one of the country’s premier commercial caulking contractors, Presto Restoration specializes in correctly repairing caulking issues on your high-rise office building, healthcare facility, historic structure, multi-family complex, or other commercial structure. Our waterproofing services are designed to safeguard your building’s envelope by dealing with the normal wear and tear caused by sunlight and seasonal expansion and contraction.
How Commercial Caulking Contractors Help
It’s crucial to hire a professional commercial caulking contractor to identify caulking problems and apply new caulking. The benefits of working with a qualified and experienced commercial caulking contractor like Presto include:
- Peace of mind the job is done right the first time. Different kinds of caulking aren’t always compatible, and so while you think the issue’s been fixed, it hasn’t.
- A watertight seal that protects the building’s envelope from rain, other water intrusion, air leaks, and pests.
- Reduced energy usage as we seal all joints, cracks, and gaps with the proper caulking your building needs.
How Sunlight Affects Commercial Caulking
Few owners or managers know for sure if their commercial building’s caulking is in good condition. Fewer still understand how quickly something as simple as sunlight can decrease caulking’s lifespan by drying it out. Sunlight can also damage the rubber gaskets used to seal glass into commercial windows. A caulking technique known as wet glazing is used to repair the glass to metal seal of commercial windows. When was the last time you checked that seal?
While you may think your building’s envelope is safe with just any old waterproofing sealant, it isn’t. UV damage and sun exposure are hidden dangers that can accelerate the aging of a structure’s caulking. Damaged and dried-out caulking should be replaced by experienced commercial caulking contractors to prevent your building or parking structure from being damaged by air and water leaks.
A Commercial Caulking Contractor You Can Trust
Unlike other commercial caulking contractors, Presto Restoration has high-level expertise in the latest techniques and technologies. We use only the finest silicone caulks from the most respected name in the industry:
- DOWSIL™ 790 Silicone Building Sealant effectively seals expansion and control joints, precast concrete panel joints, curtain wall joints, and more.
- DOWSIL™ 795 Silicone Building Sealant weatherproofs materials such a glass, concrete, EIFS, aluminum, painted metal, steel, granite, and other stone.
Both of these sealants meet all federal and ASTM specifications. Why silicone sealant instead of polyurethane? We prefer silicone caulking to other options as it typically lasts for up to 20 years, comes with a 20-year warranty, and is less reactive to UV light from the sun. It offers long-term durability under extreme weather conditions and, in our view, provides the highest level of weather tightness.
