Caulking

The solution to save and guarantee your well-being

It's always nice to find a cozy nest at home for a warm winter. Before the cold hits your nose, consider reviewing the insulation in your home.
Caulking is a long-term way to reduce energy consumption and keep you comfortable.

Why caulk your doors and windows?

No need to break the bank by heating to stay warm during the winter. Allocating a part of your budget to the caulking of your door and window seals will limit the energy consumption in your home. Caulking is an effective solution to guarantee the watertightness of your home. You no longer have to worry about water, air or insect infiltration. The Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) estimates that caulking can save up to 7 years on heating costs. In addition to saving energy, installing a weather stripping shield protects you from certain inconveniences. With humidity, mold can sometimes appear on the walls of bathroom openings, replacing the sealant seals will solve this problem.

When to renew the caulking?

Do not wait until the freezing winter arrives to seal openings in your home. Rather, early warning signs can be seen. Be aware that over time, external aggressions such as wind, sun and rain degrade the quality of the caulking products on your doors and windows. Climate change, like freezing and thawing, makes the situation worse.

It is essential to call on building professionals if you notice that the caulking is dry, cracked or peeled off. The appearance of fogging on windows can also be caused by an insulation problem in your home.

A simple gesture can detect an air infiltration. Light a candle and pass it over all places where there may be an air leak. There is a draft if the flame simmers.

STAGES OF CAULKING

It is essential to rigorously follow all the caulking techniques in order to obtain a quality result. Our caulking is guaranteed for 15 years.

1. Removing the old sealant

We must always, without any exception, remove the old sealants prior to making the new caulking. If the latter was not removed, the caulking could then unstick or crack more quickly. Therefore to perform a good removal, we use a professional tool named Multi Master Turbo 1 from the company Fein. Thanks to it, we are able to remove all the old sealer, regardless of its condition.

2. Removing residues left from the old sealant and properly cleaning

This step is simple, but yet essential. In fact, residues from the old caulking could prevent the new from well bonding or premature cracking with time. Therefore, with a simple brush and a cloth, we clean up the area to prepare for the following steps.

3. Fill in the gaps between the building and the doors and windows

When the spaces are too large between the building and the doors and windows, it must be filled by using backer rods to accommodate the application of the sealant. This step will allow better control the depth of the joints and give a better sustainability. It is also used to isolate to an intensity of R8.
