Joint Sealants and Caulking

A&K Painting Provides precise Joint Sealing & Caulking for Commercial Buildings in Charlotte, NC

A&K Painting provides joint sealing and caulking services for large commercial and industrial buildings, including warehouses, distribution centers, and manufacturing facilities throughout the Carolinas and the East Coast.

Joints are a critical component of any commercial building, as these large buildings are constantly expanding and contracting due to temperature changes, seismic stress, and weighted loads. Over time, these movements can cause cracks and gaps to form in the joints, which can lead to serious problems that compromise your building’s integrity.

The Importance of Properly Sealed Joints

Professional joint sealing and caulking are important because:

Building flex can cause damage to a building and its joints

This damage can lead to energy loss and air leakage, along with the accumulation of dirt, dust, and debris, as well as potential insect and rodent infestations.

It provides protection against water infiltration

Water damage isn’t just bad for your building; it can also cause substantial losses in material and equipment. Joint sealing and caulking are essential for waterproofing commercial buildings.
