The Importance of Joint Sealants

Joint sealants are your building's first defense in thermal and moisture protection and are found in almost every part of building construction.  From masonry control joints to window frames, from concrete expansion joints to EIFS; each substrate requires special attention when it comes to caulking these joints.  The choice between using a polyurethane sealant or a silicone could mean the difference between a job well done and a leaky building.

Equally important is the shape of the joint and the avoidance of three-way adhesion.  Depending upon the type of substrate and the shape of the joint, different techniques must be applied while installing the sealant to give it the proper profile, insuring it can withstand the compression that results from joint movement.   A quality joint sealant project must be seamless and aesthetically pleasing as well, which can be accomplished by a long-standing tradition held by James G. Staat Tuckpointing Inc., of thousands of man-hours spent perfecting these techniques.
