Sealant and caulk serve several purposes. One is to ensure that structures are weather-tight. They are also used to absorb the shock of moisture and thermal-related movement that occur at the gaps between stationary surfaces (joint substrates).
Sealant jobs are often done poorly, and a proper job requires enormous attention to detail. To prevent a common sealant error called “three sided adhesion”, Moorhouse use backer rods, joint backings, fillers, and bond break tape to strengthen our sealant jobs.
Ultimately, sealant selection depends upon four general variables: (1) application, (2) anticipated exposure, (3) movement and (4) aesthetic requirements. Our professional team can help you negotiate these factors, and make a decision about the selection that is best for you.
