Should I be worried about lead paint?
Yes and No. Lead paint can cause lead poisoning in high dosage to adults but is much more poisonous to small animals and children. All of our Foreman have been through lead treatment classes and We follow all of the lead procedures mandated by the EPA so there shouldn’t be any concern.
Is there anything that should not be filled with Caulking?
It’s important to diagnose the scope of caulking work properly or you can have premature failures from the following areas:
- Too much caulking, especially in areas that are not intended to be caulked will lead to the caulking failing.
- Wrong type of caulking: whether to use a standard caulking or an elastic caulking to fill seams makes a big difference in how long a caulking will last
- low quality caulking: Using the Highest quality caulking will have a longer lifespan and will hold in its seam longer
Remember: Use caulking strategically because adding extra caulking will create extra maintenance.
