Importance of Waterproofing Buildings

Waterproofing makes a building or structure water-resistant to protect it from water damage, so it’s a must in the maintenance of any property, 

Caulk is a special sealing agent applied between two or more materials to prevent air, water, dust, smoke and moisture passage, making a building air and watertight. Caulking is mostly applied on surfaces that need weatherproofing, like concrete.

JG Vertical specialises in waterproofing services commercial and residential buildings, particularly hard-to-reach areas and facades for high-rise buildings.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What is Caulking ?

    Caulking is the act of filling in gaps in your building with a material that contracts and expands based on the weather. Caulking seals holes in your building, preventing water, air, and insects or animals from getting inside your building. This stops the growth of mould and mildew, helps conserve energy, saves you money on your heat bill, and stops any infestations that may occur.

    There are several different types of caulk, including acrylic latex, pure silicone, adhesive, and fireproof caulk. These various types are applied to different surfaces and act as a barrier, effectively weatherproofing your building.

    What is the Process of Weatherproofing Building ?

    When hiring a company like JG Vertical for high rise caulking services or for weatherproofing buildings, we will first look for areas that need to be weatherproofed. These areas may include cracks in your building and areas by windows and doors that need to be sealed from the elements. Smaller cracks will be filled with caulking, while larger cracks may need a bit more maintenance.

    If your building doesn’t have a UV protective coating on it, we may also recommend this waterproof coating to protect your building from having additional cracks form in the future. If you’re unsure of what services your building in Sydney or surrounding areas may need, visit our Services Page to see how we can help.

    How Big of a Gap Can Caulk Fill ?

    Caulk alone can be used to fill gaps up to around ¼-inch wide. The caulk will seal the crack so no water or air gets into the building. If you have larger cracks in your building, a foam backer rod or other material may be used to fill the gap first, with a layer of caulk applied over the top. This allows the gap to be filled and the caulk to seal and waterproof the area.

    How Much Does Caulking Cost ?

    Every caulking job will be different, depending on the maintenance that needs to be done and the structure of the building. Overall costs associated with our caulking maintenance will be far less than a company that uses scaffolding and other methods. Rope access costs are considerably less since we don’t have to erect and deconstruct the scaffolding and other large amounts of construction materials and machinery. With less equipment, we save you both time and money on your maintenance project.

    How Long Does Caulking and Weatherproofing Last ?

    Different types of caulking and weatherproofing materials have different life spans. Caulking can last anywhere from 5 to 20 years without having to be replaced. If your building is in the harsh sun for much of the day, your weatherproofing coating should be replaced every 3 to 5 years to keep your building in the best shape possible. If you’re ever in need of a once-over, Contact Our Expert Team at JG Vertical, and we can help you determine if your caulking needs to be replaced.
