During the caulking process, we apply a caulk material to seal joints or seams against leakage in various structures and piping. The purpose of caulking is to provide a seal between two areas or surfaces to keep water, insects, or pests from getting into the building or house. Also, caulking can cosmetically enhance the appearance of a project by closing gaps and creating a smoother transition.
Painters generally use caulking for aesthetic reasons. Uncaulked gaps between: exterior surfaces, between two surfaces, along the top of baseboards, in wood trim, along cabinets and counter-tops – will look unsightly and unprofessional. Caulking eliminates the gaps.
Water intrusion into a home or building can have devastating effects on the property. The water can rot wood, freeze inside masonry and cause defects or potentially create mildew. Caulking is just one basic step to help keep these and other problems from happening.
