It’s important to inspect your caulking now and to make sure it’s still sealing the places that it was intended to seal. The right caulking can help keep your home more energy efficient and save you money. House Doctors can replace damaged caulking or install new caulking.

House Doctors can advise which type to use and where you should be using the caulking in your home.  Consider some caulking benefits below.

Watertight Sealant
Caulk serves as a watertight sealant in the joints and creases for countertops and various fixtures, and prevents water from seeping in cracks and crevices, causing costly water damage to walls, cabinets, flooring and more.  To prevent water damage in your home make sure your faucets, counter tops, vanities, cabinets, toilets and sinks and more are properly sealed with.

Energy Savings
Several areas of the home can create drafts and let the cold or hot air out if they are not properly sealed with caulk.  The most susceptible areas of the home for energy loss are the windows and doors.  If the borders of these fixtures are not sealed correctly, the hot and cold air produced by your HVAC unit escapes, causing it to work harder and use more energy to maintain the temperature in your home.

Protection
When a home is properly caulked it provides protection from unwanted outdoor creatures and dirt from entering your living space.  These outdoor elements can range from dust, dirt and moisture from rain and snow to insects and small critters.  Prevent any weather related damage such as wood rot, mold and mildew by caulking your windows and doors on a regular basis.
