When to Get Window Caulking, San Antonio
There are a variety of factors that go into how often you need to have your windows re-caulked. Here are some guidelines to go by if you’re unsure:New Homes: If you’re home is only a few years old and it still has the original caulk, you may need to have it redone. This is because, after that first year, your home will have settled quite a bit and various elements will have shifted, causing caulking to come loose.
Established: Under normal conditions, an older home will need caulking about every 5 years though many factors can make this time shorter or longer.
Abnormal Conditions: As we mentioned, 5 years works for typical homes, but what if your home isn’t typical? For example, If you live in an area where there was extended drought followed by heavy rains then your windows probably took a good deal of abuse and could probably use new caulk.
