Home sweet home….well, not always.
Many home owners are unaware that there residence is “under attack”. No, not by aliens! By structural cracks and gaps around window systems as well as other exterior areas that are not easily visible. Untreated flaws in the envelope of a residential home are responsible for a multitude of problems:
- energy loss from inside
- air and water intrusion
- bug infestation….yes, BUGS!
- increased humidity, dust and pollen
- mold build-up effecting health of occupants
- structural damage that devalues the worth of your home
In this customer’s home,water intrusion was never discovered until furniture got moved.
And to think that this damage started with a hair-line crack…..
Once detected, even small cracks as found above, need proper caulking to stop the the growth of mold. As shown below, when proactive action is not taken, the results can be devastating….
Besides eliminating air leaks that keep cold air in and hot air out, our professional caulking and weatherization service eliminates BUG infestation and stops the degradation of your home’s structural envelope. Further more, caulking prevents mold growth which is a major hazard to the well-being of your family.
Hair line cracks beneath these windows resulted in water to enter the home and build up mold inside. The left side of the frame has been repaired. When totally finished with all cracks and gaps repaired, this home’s envelope will be restored….and deterioration from exterior intrusion will be prevented.
