The replacement of control joint caulking for commercial structures is just one aspect of the essential maintenance required to preserve the building's exterior.


Due to weathering, the lifespan of control joints can vary between five to 30 years. Factors such as sealant type, building joint movement, exposure levels, and other variables contribute to this variation. Our recommendation often leans towards replacing old control joints with silicone caulking due to its longer lifespan compared to urethane caulking. We believe that for commercial building exteriors, silicone offers an extended lifespan and various other benefits.


We advocate for the complete removal of old control joints and the installation of new backer rods, as opposed to merely skimming over existing control joints. This approach ensures that the new caulking maintains the appropriate width-to-length ratio and allows for maximum joint elongation. Greater elongation typically translates to longer-lasting caulking joints, leading to extended sealant longevity and reduced caulking expenses for property owners.
