Improve Joint Longevity
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 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 replacing with 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, increased lifespan for the sealant, and decreased caulking costs for the property owner. Here in Charleston, we have many historic buildings that need the right care to maintain their integrity. We give great attention to detail on every job regardless of size.

In this project, we caulked out at one of the new Boeing sites. Here are our technicians applying some NP1 in order to seal up the floor joint is this production area. This low level caulking is pretty easy aside from being on your knees. We also replace caulk around windows, doors and expansion joints on commercial buildings.
