Window and Skylight Reseal
Window and Skylight Reseal is normally performed when the joints around the windows or the joints from the window frame to glass are deteriorating and need to be re-caulked or re-glazed (also known as resealed).
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 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
