Oshawa, ON and the surrounding area are part of the territory for which we provide window caulking.
Although it is often overlooked, window caulking is an essential part of the maintenance of any building, whether a home or a business. That is because it is needed to seal gaps surrounding windows to prevent warm air from escaping in the winter and entering in the summer.
When a building is not properly sealed, gaps permit air to transfer from the warmer area to the cooler area, as it does according to the laws of thermodynamics. When it does, cool air fills the vacuum left by warmer air. Even if you did not think of it in terms of the laws of thermodynamics, you have certainly experienced this at some point. You just called the movement of cool air rushing to fill the vacuum a “draft.”
In some cases, you will first become aware of a problem with your window caulking by noticing a draft when your window is closed. If the window is shut properly but you are experiencing air flow of a different temperature than the one at which your furnace or air conditioner is set, it is almost certainly due to poor caulking.
Unfortunately, not everyone notices a draft when caulking wears out. Instead, some people spend hundreds, or even thousands of dollars over time in increased energy costs associated with inadequate caulking. They may also spend more than they would otherwise have to spend on maintenance and repairs of heating and air conditioning systems that are working harder than they should to regulate the temperature of a building.
Fortunately, there is an easy fix for these problems. We provide window caulking for all sorts of buildings, from residences such as single family homes and apartment buildings, to office buildings and businesses. We even offer landscape caulking, which can save surfaces such as driveways and sidewalks from damage caused by the penetration of water.
Don’t live with outdated or worn caulking any longer than you already have. Call us about the window caulking services that we offer to those in Oshawa, ON.
