caulk failure along window sill

Caulk Failure

Over time some caulks will fail by drying out. It causes them to lose their flexibility and or break their contact adhesion with the surface. It will result in gaps and cracks where moisture can enter.

Caulk failure can be caused by using a lower quality caulk, improper surface preparation, or picking the wrong caulk for the job. Lower quality caulk dries out too rapidly and doesn't provide customers with the length of protection they were hoping for. Surfaces must be properly cleaned and prepared or even the correct caulk won't adhere. Different caulks are made to adhere to different surfaces, so using the wrong caulk can cause adhesion problems that eventually leave gaps.
