Avoid water damage
Caulking joints play a decisive role in the insulation of a home. They make it possible to protect the house well by avoiding water infiltration and its damage. Humidity has a destructive effect on almost all objects. When the caulking joints deteriorate and there is water infiltration, it is noted that:
- the coatings are damaged and fall;
- panelling, floors and parquet floors rot;
- the paint of the façade becomes user and stands out;
- papers soak and decompose;
- textiles deteriorate;
- furniture and all objects present in the house are exposed to more or less rapid deterioration, etc.
Water infiltration can lead to other, even more serious consequences. On masonry structures, we can observe the swelling or even the bursting of the bricks when the infiltrated water begins to freeze. In reality, there is pressure from the expansion of the ice.
It causes considerable damage to the structures. In addition, humidity is a door open to fungi and mold in the rooms and at the level of the window lighter.
All these inconveniences can be avoided with our Montreal caulking work. In particular, we offer services for changing thermos windows and caulking joints. Our interventions effectively protect against water infiltration. Our tailor-made and quality services offer the best guarantees.
Maintain good hygiene
Caulking joints in good condition ensure good hygiene in the house. They protect from infestation pests that are dangerous to health.
Presence of pests
Used caulking joints create cracks in window caulking, in other parts of the house, and even in commercial buildings. With these openings, pests can easily penetrate the buildings.
These include rodents (mainly mice) and insects. It is essential to protect your property by sealing all exits with quality caulking joints.
Unsanitary conditions favor the development of mold, especially Aspergillus and the terrible trichomoniasis. They also induce the infestation and reproduction of mites. However, the presence of mold, fungi and polyurethane foam is very harmful.
Their toxicity can lead to serious health problems in children, the elderly and anyone with health problems (such as asthma).
Air leaks are common when the seals are no longer in good condition. They cause a real loss of heat. These leaks can represent up to 25% of heat loss in homes according to Hydro Québec. They are thus the basis of a considerable increase in heating that has a great impact on finances with high bills.
In addition, leaks in a house reduce its value for a possible sale. The evaluation of the sale price of a property puts particular emphasis on its insulation.
