Caulking openings and siding
The very specific caulking work…
- Industrial buildings,
- Shopping malls,
- Office towers,
- Large housing estates,
… it requires technical expertise and know-how that requires the implementation of large-scale technical means.
High-rise work requires additional expertise to reach the hardest-to-reach areas.

Elite Caulking works with its own pods
In the commercial field (including condominium towers),the professional caulking expert must have all the certifications to enable him to work in a totally safe environment in full compliance with CNESST regulations.
It is a priority to make use of all equipment such as:
- The pods,
- Safety harness,
- Lift platforms,
- Protective shoes,
- Signage, etc.
For Shawn Dupuis(Mr. Elite Caulking), having his own pods provides more flexibility and speed of response.
The company also offers the rental of its pods, by the day, the week, the month.
Comfort and energy savings of businesses
Maintaining the proper support of caulking commercial buildings around openings is essential if the effects of winter conditions are to be minimized.
The large variations in the temperature of Quebec’s climate, combined with the effects of the sun and wind, push the dilation capacity and reduce the life expectancy of the sealant to the extreme.
The application of a new top-of-the-range sealant, applied to the highest industry standards, will improve the quality of the environment inside stores, condominium towers and office towers while helping to maintain energy savings.
Missions of the caulking expert
The mission of our caulkers is to use all their know-how to seal the windows of shopping malls,block air infiltration, plug water infiltration while helping to reduce heat loss.
The ultimate goal is to maintain perfect waterproofing and promote good thermal insulation.
A professional inspection will allow the expert:
- To note the level of deterioration of the current sealant,
- To identify the causes of premature wear,
- To propose a sustainable and sustainable solution
- Assess potential risks if work is not done on time.
A result that lives up to your image
Total waterproofing is not the only goal.
A commercial, industrial or institutional building must reflect the image of the company. Professional activity structures are places where employees, customers and suppliers rub shoulders.
The end result must therefore be in perfect harmony with the building envelope. The finish should be very aesthetic and the colours of the sealants must match with the current substrates.
Water infiltration into office towers damages a lot of documents and destroys several office equipment. These gaps result in considerable waste of time and money and undermine the company’s profitability.
Maintaining a good caulking will limit the risks associated with poor conditions in the building envelope.
The physical exterior appearance of a hotel residence guarantees the interior comfort. Maintaining the caulking of the building envelope will help to maintain the original properties of insulation and soundproofing inside the rooms.
Retail and service trade
A business is a space that receives customers while offering storage of all types of new goods.
Whether for food, clothing, pharmaceuticals, electronics or furniture, the seal must be perfect in order to keep these products in perfect sales conditions.
Maintaining a good waterproof caulking will protect the value of your inventories from water, insect or other nuisances.
Buildings for recreation and education
Buildings dedicated to recreation and education must provide a watertight and safe environment. Maintaining the sealing of the caulking will limit a large risk of water infiltration which is the main source of mold so harmful to children’s health.
There is no need to wait to see an inner sign of water infiltration. As soon as the sealant is cracked, the water seeps in.
And until the interior is saturated with water, you won’t notice any visible infiltration. But rest assured of one thing, the presence of mold and degradation will grow with the recurrence of water infiltration.
Medical clinics and residences for the elderly
People who are sick or weakened by age are often more sensitive to temperature changes. In addition to protecting users from pest discomfort, good caulking will also maintain the level of insulation in line with current standards and promote a temperate climate inside the building.
