Commercial new construction caulking services are a critical when completing your commercial building. Proper investment in caulking and waterproofing coatings can save you money for decades. Every exterior surface of a new building, including the parking structure, should be professionally sealed against water intrusion and other environmental damage. Caulking serves other purposes, too, such as noise and weather insulation.
How Does Caulking Work?
First used to ensure wooden ships were watertight, caulking serves the same purpose today as it did back then: to fill gaps and seams on a structure to make it impervious to water damage. Commercial structure caulking is a flexible, waterproof compound used to seal seams and joints. Which type of caulking and weatherproofing coatings you use for your new high-rise building, multi-family complex, or other commercial property depends largely on the building’s construction. Each type of caulking is designed for a specific purpose and, if you want it to provide lasting protection, it’s essential to use the correct product. Proper application of the product is also vital.
Why are Commercial Caulking Services for New Construction So Important?
If a commercial building isn’t water and airtight, water leaks and other damage can threaten its structural integrity. From an aesthetic perspective, caulking provides a professional finish by covering nails and metal materials, closing unsightly gaps, and smoothing transitions. It’s also a necessary part of the process on buildings that are painted, improving the texture and quality.
Symptoms of a building that hasn’t been caulked and sealed include drywall and ceiling tile deterioration, electrical component damage or destruction, and pest and toxic mold infestation.
Commercial Building Caulking Services
Commercial caulking services keep your newly constructed building safe, structurally stable, and comfortable for occupants. From saving you money on energy and repair costs to preventing water intrusion and varmint infestation, it’s the final step in the construction process that shouldn’t be side-stepped!
There are several types of caulk to choose from, including acrylic, vinyl, siliconized acrylic, and adhesive, and the two most popular versions, polyurethane, and pure silicone. Presto Restoration uses silicone caulk when waterproofing new commercial buildings whenever possible. We believe it’s the superior choice for meeting all federal and ASTM specifications.
