The number one construction issues building owners face today is water intrusion into the building envelope. There are several areas to value-engineer expenses for maintenance. Sealants should not be one of those expenses. In most circumstances the only protection from water intrusion are the sealants used to seal the penetrations through th building and the manner in which they are installed. Your contractor should have a track record of proven performance. It takes more than a tube of sealant and a caulking gun to apply a proper seal. Each application is unique to the situation. To achieve a long lasting, water tight seal, it is crucial to understand the proper product, bond breaker, depth to width ration, and the surfaces to which the sealants are applied.
