We recently provided caulking services as a phase of a building restoration that we performed in the Dallas, Texas metro area. On this particular phase, we are removing the old caulk around the cast stone cornice and replacing it with new NP1 caulk. This keeps water from getting in behind the stone and breaking it apart during freezes.
This building had failing cast stone on virtually every wall. The building owner did not have the budget to remove the stone and install new so we patched the cast stone that was chipping, removed the stone that was failing and replaced it with a plaster look-alike, we then replaced all the caulk joints around the building with NP1 caulk and painted the stone so it was uniform in color.

As buildings get older, the caulk around the expansion joints, windows and other cuts starts to crack, usually on the west and south facing walls first because they receive the most sun and heat. Failing caulk usually results in water getting behind the building envelope can cause all kinds of damage and can result in mold, which requires expensive remediation. Once the building reaches 15 years, old start checking the caulk joints. If you need new caulk, we can come out and provide you with guidance on how much needs to be replaced, and provide you with an estimate to remove the old caulk and replace with new NP1 caulk.
