Caulking is the process undertaken to seal the joints / gaps / seams / piping / penetrations in structures necessary as part of the construction process. The installation of a flexible seal prevents the risk of any contaminants such as water, air, dust, insects, fire, oil or compounds damaging the joints integrity.
In modern building construction properly caulked surfaces are also an effective way to reduce noise, provide insulation and cut energy costs, reducing the energy demand. Residential caulking is important in Bathrooms, Kitchens and Laundries in order to prevent mould and leaks.
Caulking is essential to seal the pre-cast panels that are so prevalent in the modern construction process.
