Re-caulking and Re-glazing
Re-caulking means that the building caulk joints are deteriorated and will need to be cut out and re-caulked using either a urethane sealant or a silicone sealant.
Re-glazing means that the window frame to glass joints are deteriorated and will need to be cut out and resealed/re-glazed using, normally a silicone sealant.
Caulking and glazing (also known as resealing) should last about ten to twenty years depending on the material, application, and warranties.
When should you Reseal?
- When there is loose caulking materials
- Where caulking is split from the masonry and/or adjacent material
- Where cracks appear in the caulk joint
- Where air pockets (bubbles) appear in the caulking material
