AUSTIN CAULKING AND SEALING
CAULKING AND SEALING
Caulking provides two beneficial purposes. The first is to cosmetically enhance the appearance of a project by closing gaps and creating a smoother transition; The second (and most important) is to provide a seal between two areas or surfaces to keep water from getting into the building or house.
WHY IS FRESH CAULKING SO IMPORTANT?
Water intrusion into a home or building can have devastating effects on the property. The water can rot wood, freeze inside masonry and cause defects or potentially create mildew. Caulking is just one basic step to help keep these and other problems from happening. Proper caulking and sealing on a structure can even prevent insects from invading your home!
IMPORTANT TO KNOW
Similar to paints, caulks are all made from one of four base compounds: acrylic latex, silicone, polyurethane and rubber. The base compound determines specific characteristics, such as what materials it will adhere to, how easily joints can be smoothed, durability, paintability, etc. We always make sure to use the right caulk for every situation and ensure we use the longest lasting caulking available. We consider proper caulking and sealing an essential part of every exterior and interior painting project that we do.

"HIRE THIS COMPANY!
Steven was able to come over the same day that we called him to give an estimate on our large project. We were so impressed with his quote, that we hired him on the spot. We were on a deadline because our furniture was scheduled to arrive the following week, so he moved some things around and got his team started just a few short days after we hired them. The painters were efficient, polite, and did a fantastic job! We even asked if they could paint the kitchen cabinets at the last minute and they were able to get everything completed before our furniture arrived! We have a few other painting projects that we will need to do in the future and I will absolutely be hiring That1Painter again!!!"
