Unfortunately, houses will always have unwanted gaps and holes. Luckily, these can be easily fixed with general caulking and gap sealing application and prevent any unnecessary damage to your home.
There are many reasons why general caulking and gap sealing is an essential service for your home. These include:
One of the most common issues that we deal with is water damage. Surface water, rainfall, or even common shower and kitchen water can create some serious damage to your home and lead to mould. Effective caulking for bathrooms, kitchens, laundries and power rooms, will examine any gaps within the walls, floors, sinks or pipes that allow water to seep through, and create a waterproof barrier to prevent unwanted moisture to form.
Gaps and holes allow pests to enter homes and breed. Rats and mice in particular, are more likely to develop in houses with many holes that are left untreated, creating a perfect hiding spot.
Gap sealing allows all gaps on various parts of the house to be filled in and prevent the rise of pest issues.
In colder months, gaps and holes around the house can allow warm air to easily escape your home and cold air to enter. This will not only result in cold spots but increase your heating bills and make your house less energy efficient. Caulking can easily real the gaps and fill in the holes and make your house cool proof and winter ready.
Appearance and Aesthetics
Besides all the issues and damage they create, gaps and holes simply do not look appealing. Caulking is a perfect solution to improve the appearance of your home and prevent bringing down the value of your property.
