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
