Building exteriors are exposed to harsh environmental elements throughout the year. Extreme heat, the Suns UV rays, and freezing temperatures all contribute to caulk deterioration. Over time deteriorated caulk begins to crack and crumble leaving gaps for air and water to seep through, making deteriorated caulk one of the leading causes of water penetration. Beyond the obvious water damage, these leaks can also lead to mold growth and higher energy bills.

In addition to the environment, a leading cause of caulk failure is simply improper installation, In order to create a properly sealed joint it is imperative that the substrate is cleaned to a virgin surface to allow for a proper two point adhesion installation. 

Another important consideration is the type of caulk used. Selecting the right type of product for the particular application is crucial and MHMC has the experience to insure that not only does the job look good, but it will last as well.
