If your building needs to be resealed or caulked, then there are likely these telling signs throughout your facility or structure:
Cracks can occur in a variety of materials throughout your facility and can appear on floors, walls, and interior and exterior structures. Interior concrete crack repair can be extensive, ranging from sealing and caulking, to more comprehensive services that require high-level investigation. These cracks, however tiny at first, can turn into serious structural issues tied to costly repair services, so don’t wait to schedule an assessment.
Concrete delamination is the separation of layers in the concrete surface, creating a space between the surface and the substrate underneath. This issue is caused by trapped moisture underneath the surface that slowly increases until it breaks through. We provide concrete delamination repair services, from caulking and sealing to more extensive services, for all types of commercial or industrial buildings.
Peeling or missing sections of caulking
Not only is this an aesthetic issue in most commercial buildings, it can also pose a structural hazard. Gaps in sections of caulking can provide a route for unwanted air and moisture which can cause higher energy bills and the buildup of mold and mildew. This moisture will also contribute to the degradation of the internal structural connections on most building systems.
Noticeable airflow in already caulked areas
Similar to above, if there’s noticeable airflow in caulked areas of your building then it’s a likely sign of cracks and gaps that have not been properly sealed. Typically, this issue exists alongside doors, windows, and exterior walls but can happen along interior walls too.
Increased energy bills
Air leaks can cause substantial increases in heating or cooling costs for your facility without any noticeable change in comfort levels. These air leaks can go undetected for months, even years, while your energy bill continues to rise. An experienced contractor can investigate common underlying signs associated with higher energy bills and offer solutions like proper sealing or air barrier installation.
