The Importance of Joint Sealants Restoration
While reinstalling damaged joint sealants, it is important to completely remove the old caulk to ensure proper adhesion of the new. But the importance of caulking extends to more than just a defense against the weather; the final composition must be congruent with the existing façade and enhance, not detract from the originally intended scape of the structure. This is where many projects fail when the proper time and attention to detail is missed when not removing the old to prepare for the new. After this step is completed, then the real work begins to assess the substrates to determine what product is appropriate for joining the materials.
Water and thermal repellant choices depend on proper installation against aggressive weather conditions. As buildings expand and contract, weather-proofing components must withstand the compaction from the elements. This natural process is inevitable, yet formulating the right equation of products and materials to act in concert with the substrates is the bedrock of our industry. The experience of working with these agents is what makes Staat Inc., stand apart from the rest – providing the groundwork of what makes a solid foundation of excellent results for generations to come.
