Since our beginnings, the process of caulking and applying sealants to new construction projects as well as removing and installing new sealants on countless buildings has not changed.
Product is still contained in a bucket, tube or sausage. The applicator installs a backer rod, and sealant is applied to a clean, dry joint. This process sounds simple, but sealant failures are the first cause of water leaks.
Joint preparation and sealant depth are the most important aspects of sealant installation. Adhesive or cohesive sealant failure will occur if joint preparation and sealant depth are improper.
Culbertson Restoration’s craftsmen install sealants correctly by ensuring that the backer rod is installed to the correct depth and that the joining substrates have been properly prepped.
