How to Select a Contractor for Joint Sealants & Caulking and Joint Systems

Category: Commercial Contractor

How your construction materials are joined is as important as the materials themselves. Even the longest-lasting and most wear-resistant construction materials won’t last if the joints are not solid and allow dirt, moisture and water to penetrate. Once a joint has been breached, it’s only a matter of time before your materials work loose and your floor, wall, ceiling or other joined surface starts to fail. To avoid these costly problems, choose a trusted joint sealant contractor like Houck to take care of all of your commercial joint sealing and caulking needs.

Not All Joining Systems Are Created Equal

The type of joining sealant you choose depends on the types of materials you are joining and how they will be used:

  • Solid: Some joint systems need to be rigid and solid to resist movement, such as vertical wall materials and horizontal ceiling materials.
  • Flexible: Certain uses require a flexible joint that absorbs movement without cracking, including flooring and roofing materials.
  • Heat and moisture resistant: Joints that are exposed to heat, cold and moisture need to be resistant to environmental factors.
  • Clean: Certain industrial and commercial applications demand high cleanliness standards and a joint system that does not flake or create dust and particles.
