Caulking is an important part of protecting the exterior of your home or residential property from weather and water damage that can lead to structural issues. Heat loss due to cracks and openings in old caulking can significantly raise heating and cooling costs due to air leakage. Due to air leakage many homeowners turn up their heating systems which in turn can cause other problems; such as increased dryness in the home and makes the hardwood shrink and show gaps, drywall begins to ‘shrink’ which creates cracks in walls and ceilings (not to mention the dreaded nail pops), the air quality is reduced because you breath recycled and extremely warm air. High heating temperatures can also lead to condensation on windows and doors, and in turn can lead to mold and potentially the need of replacement. All are easily avoided with an inspection of your exterior. If you find any cracks in your caulking give us a call and we will be happy to give you an honest opinion and a no obligation quote. Pearl Homes has over seven years of experience and uses a large assortment of materials and colours that are sure to meet and exceed your expectations.
