Window caulking has never been more accessible than it is now to residents and businesses in Etobicoke, ON.
Proper, up to date window caulking is an extremely important part of maintenance, though it is also one that is often overlooked for too long. One of the reasons for this is that the job does not, or at least should not, have to be done very often. Even poor caulking jobs should last for years. Thanks to our outstanding workmanship and the high quality of the materials that we use, we are able to provide all of our customers with ten year warranties on the jobs that we do.
Window caulking is particularly important here in Canada, as windows contract when temperatures drop. Extreme lows mixed with warm summers mean that the changes in the size of the glass are more extreme than they are in temperate climates. When glass expands and contracts, it takes a toll on the caulking over time.
When caulking gets worn down, is applied improperly, or is done with poor materials, gaps can arise, allowing warm air to enter a building in summer and to escape in winter. This means higher air conditioning and heating bills because the systems that regulate indoor temperatures need to work more than they otherwise would. It also means that more frequent maintenance on these systems is required.
While caulking is important in terms of controlling energy costs, it is also important in terms of keeping a building both healthy and comfortable. For example, drafts commonly arise from gaps in caulking, making areas close to a window uncomfortable. In some cases, people can even become ill if they fall asleep or spend too much time in a drafty area. This can mean missed time at work or school in addition to the illnesses themselves.
There is an easy way to avoid these problems, though. If you have a home or other building in Etobicoke, ON with window caulking that needs to be updated, either because you recognize that there is a problem or it has been a long time since you have gotten a new caulking job, get in touch with us today.
