House Re-caulking:

– First we completely remove old caulking.

– Be aware that not all the companies remove it (even if they say they will), they just caulk on top of an old caulking.  Re-caulking on top is not going to last for a long time and if they do remove it, they use an electrical cutter, which doesn’t do a clean and effective job. We use a cutter knife or chisel and hammer (for old hard caulking). It takes more labor work, but we know that gaps will be clean and ready for a new caulking.

Depending on a size of a gap we either spraying foam or installing backer-rod and applying with neat professional bead of caulking. At the moment Vanguard Caulking uses over 50 different silicone colors, so match is nearly perfect.

Vanguard Caulking taking care of all your house: windows, doors, vents, pipes, joints. We always supply and install new vent covers, so customer doesn’t have to worry of buying different sizes of vents.

For Re-caulking we providing 10 year written warranty!!!!!

Please note, if somebody offers to do caulking on top of your old caulking, you just wasting your money, job gonna last most 3-4 years and next time will cost you almost double.

Do the job right at first time.
