Whether you are building a brand-new home or renovating an older one, caulking to seal cracks, gaps, or joints is a crucial step.
These tiny spaces, less than a quarter inch wide, are a huge source of air leaks in a home. And air leaks means wasted energy, and wasted money.
Gaps and spaces around windows and door frames are the main culprits for air leakage. Spending a little time and money to apply caulking to fill these spaces will lead to energy and money savings, as well as lead to more comfortable living spaces.
Caulking to seal cracks and gaps can also prevent water damage inside and outside the home. Applying caulking around faucets, ceiling fixtures, water pipes, drains, bathtubs, and other plumbing fixtures will prevent water from getting where it shouldn't be.
Eco-Friendly Caulk: Titebond GREENchoice
While caulking to seal gaps and cracks is the right thing to do from an energy-saving perspective, there are concerns about some of the toxic materials used to make most commercially available caulks.
Caulks and sealants often contain solvents which contain Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) that can be hazardous for installers, and create air quality issues for homeowners.
Titebond believes that a caulking product should do its job without contributing to negative air qualities; they have created the GREENchoice line, which contains very small amounts of VOCs.
These ultra-low VOC products allow homeowners to avoid the problems associated with elevated VOC levels in the home, such as asthma and other respiratory.
