What is caulking?
Caulking refers to the application of caulk, a sealant that is used to fill gaps or cracks to ensure that air, water, and insects stay out of your home. Caulk is generally made with chemicals such as silicone, polyurethane, polysulfide, silyl-terminated-polyether or polyurethane and acrylic sealant, and is typically applied around windows, doors, pipes, plumbing, and breaks in siding.
Benefits of re-caulking
Damaged caulk opens the way for colonies of mildew to grow, for water to seep through and cause wall damage, or for undesired air to enter your home, so it is important for homeowners to replace any damaged caulk to prevent issues down the line. Sealing cracks and crevices puts less strain home appliances, saving stress, time, and money by preventing the need for major repairs. By increasing the lifespan of your home and appliances, you can reduce the amount of waste and pollution that is put into landfills. Additionally, sealing leaks around the home with caulk is a great way to cut home energy costs and decrease your home’s carbon footprint. Old, damaged caulk can also make a bathroom look dated and unsightly. If this is the case, you may resort to redoing your whole bathroom or shower. However, often times all that a dated bathroom needs is new grout and caulk, which can make your bathroom look fresh and rejuvenated.

Types of caulking
We offer a wide variety of caulking services in Marietta, Georgia
for all parts of your home, including the interior, bathroom, tub,
sink, and kitchen.
For both your bathroom and kitchen sink, caulk is applied along the joint where the sink meets the countertop to prevent water and debris from getting underneath, which can cause growth of mold or mildew.
Sometimes, the caulk can erode or pull away from the joint, which is a sign that it should be removed and reapplied. With interior caulking, caulk is used to fill each crack in the trim and the gaps between the walls and the trim, which can look dark and unsightly against the typically white trim. Filling these dark cracks produces a desirable, finished look.
These are just a few examples of the caulking services that we provide and their benefits. If you are unsure about which areas of your home require re-caulking, we can inspect your home to determine areas of damage and repair it quickly and professionally.
