Painting and Caulking: How They Work Together To Protect Your Property
We all know that paint can drastically improve your property’s appearance. In fact, a professional paint job is the fastest, most cost-effective route to an updated look, offering lasting value at the same time.
Paint is more than a pretty face, though. It’s also a shield for your surfaces, blocking out UV damage, pests, premature decay, rot, moisture, and more.
This is why we invest time in our preparation process, ensuring that your primer and paint can bond securely and be set up for success. Cleaning, scraping, sanding, repairs… Each step works together to deliver the strongest, best paint job possible.
Today, let’s focus on another unsung hero of the exterior painting process: caulk.
Caulking Services in the Bay Area
Just like interior caulking, exterior caulk helps create a smooth finish, seamlessly filling small cracks and gaps. Outdoors, however, your caulking has a few additional items in its job description.
First and foremost, exterior caulk helps create a weather-tight seal, making it a key player in your property’s overall efficiency. It also locks out moisture, in turn preventing water damage, rot, and decay. Age will eventually get the best of it, though, turning the material brittle. Cracks form and chunks can fall out, breaking down the armor.
During your routine repaint or touch-ups, have your painter check your caulking. Proactive replacement can save you a lot of money in avoidable damage (and subsequent repairs).
Commercial Painting and Caulking
Take a look at the photos above! Our team recently painted this commercial Bay Area property, including stripping out the failed caulking around the windows and replacing it with fresh material.
We then painted the facility, completing the fresh look (and protection).
