Our commercial caulking services range from repairing control joints with silicone caulking to wet glazing curtain wall windows. We have experience replacing silicone caulking as well as urethane caulking. Our commercial caulkers are trained in order to effectively access a variety of difficult areas and tool caulking to perfection.
Replacing control joint caulking on commercial structures is just one of the many maintenance procedures required in order to preserve the exterior envelope of the building.
Control joints are degraded by weathering, and will last 5 to 30 years depending on the type of sealant used, the movement the joint is subjected to, the amount of exposure that the joint receives, and also the type of building material. We typically recommend replacing expired control joints with silicone caulking due to its extended life expectancy when compared to urethane caulking. We believe that this extended life expectancy, and a variety of other factors, makes silicone a far superior product for the exterior facade of commercial properties.We recommend completely removing expired control joints, and the installation of new backer rod, instead of skim coating over expired control joints. This helps to create the correct width to length ratio for the newly installed caulking and maximize the amount of elongation for the joints. A better range of elongation typically results in longer lasting caulking joints, which ultimately results in increased lifespan for the sealant, and decreased caulking costs for the property owner.
Call us today so that we can discuss your expectations for a control joint caulking business, and we can show you the ways in which we are ready to exceed your expectations.
Water often enters commercial structures through voids in the window systems. Expired window gaskets should be replaced with silicone caulking in order to provide a permanent seal on the window system. We can provide wet glazing services on new and existing structures in order to meet your wet glazing needs. Our wet glazing services are tailored to meet your demands for a commercial wet glazing business.
We have experience wet glazing a variety of curtain wall and window system installations. Wet glazing can repair skylight leaks, and other types of water intrusion problems associated with voids in the window system.
We know that you need water leaks stopped fast. We are able to locate water leaks and apply silicone caulk to the areas that need it. Often silicone rubber gaskets will shrink and allow water to leak into the window systems. Other times, control joints will leak, or the caulking will leak that is surrounding the window.
Waterproofing the exterior envelope is an important step in water leak repair, and we can provide the caulking services required to stop a leak. We can often locate difficult to find leaks that other caulking contractors are unable to locate through careful water testing procedures, and infrared imaging. We are able to quickly diagnose where the water is leaking in and fix it at the source with silicone caulking and sealant that will provide a long lasting leak repair.

Waterproofing is a service that protects your building from water damage. Water damage can be a very serious and expensive problem and is often overlooked until it is too late. Symptoms of an improperly sealed building can include the deterioration of the building’s interior materials such as drywall and ceiling tiles, damage or destruction of electrical elements, and the infestation of toxic mold (i.e. Stachybotrys atra and Chaetomium globosum). The latter may be the most detrimental effect from water damage.Our waterproofing division has specialized technicians that can perform services such as wet glazing, caulking and precast control joints. We assign separate project managers and separate crews for glass restoration, waterproofing and window cleaning. This is important to ensure that technicians are thoroughly trained in their area of expertise. Allowing us to perform your waterproofing and your window cleaning needs insures that we can monitor the condition of your building’s exterior and make you aware of any issues long before they result in unexpected repair costs.
“In 1992, employees at a new Martin County courthouse complex in Stuart, FL began complaining of breathing problems and headaches. After a toxic form of mold was discovered behind wallpaper and ceiling tiles, the two-building complex was evacuated. It took the county five years and about $27 million to clean up and repair the complex so it could reopen”
