Caulk is a waterproof sealant used to fill in the empty gaps between your household appliances. The main purpose of caulk and the reason it is such a crucial aspect of any home, is that it ensures water is kept from leaking into unwanted areas and insulation remains intact. Over time, caulk begins to crack and become worn down, exposing your home and putting your appliances at risk of damage.
At The Grout Specialist, we only do re-caulking where tile is present, such as showers, stone counters, and backsplashes. Our dedicated team is made up of recaulking and caulking professionals. We have years of experience in the field, removing old, worn caulk and replacing it with a fresh layer that is guaranteed to protect your home from the elements. Our specialists are knowledgeable on the types of caulk that are most effective in different areas of your home and can oversee that the job is done quickly and correctly.
You may be wondering how often a home should be recaulked with Sealant Caulk. There is no set answer since every home is different, but new homeowners are often advised to recaulk their homes a year after moving in. The reasoning behind this is that within that first year of settling into a new house, your home settles as well, creating breaks and cracks in the caulking. Once that first caulking is performed, here are a few signs to watch out for in order to determine when your home is due for retouching.
Ensuring the caulking around your home is in good condition is not only beneficial for appearances. The sealing of gaps between household appliances prevents leakage, lowers energy costs, reduces your carbon footprint, and prevents damage by putting less strain on the appliances.
Make sure your home is secure and have your appliances recaulked with our Sealant specialists. Call The Grout Specialist today at +1 (720) 517-8041 to speak with one of our helpful experts or click here for more information.
