Seal in the Savings
Summer is a great time to give the interior and exterior of your home a little TLC. And we've got 3 sealants from Red Devil that will help you fill in the gaps and cracks around your home and increase your home’s energy efficiency. Whether your project is big or small, Red Devil will help you get it done and seal in the savings...
We recommend starting your sealing project indoors. Summer is a great time to make sure that the seals around your fixtures, tubs, toilets, sinks, and counters are intact to prevent any water seeping in and causing damage. Take a look at the places that need to be sealed in the high-moisture areas of your home like the bathroom and kitchen. If any of the sealant in this area is discolored or cracked it’s time to remove and replace it. To fix this use a product like Red Devil’s Kitchen & Bath Stain Block Sealant that is mold and mildew resistant, low-VOC, provides a water-tight seal, and is paintable. As an added bonus this repels the toughest stains like mustard, red wine, and coffee so you don’t have to worry about staining or discoloring its high gloss finish. For small projects just grab a squeeze tube and don’t worry about a caulking gun.
Next, head outside. During the summer, cool air can escape through the gaps and cracks around your windows, doors, trim, and siding. Sealing during the summer also gives you a head start on protecting your home against pests before the weather turns cool. We recommend using a product with a lifetime durability guarantee like Red Devil’s Lifetime Ultra 230 Premium Sealant. When sealing your home’s exterior it’s important to use a sealant that is weather-resistant and that comes in multiple colors or is paintable so it doesn’t hurt your curb appeal. Using a squeeze tube for your sealing job also makes it easy and convenient and can reduce the amount of product waste.
Lastly, take a look at the faucets, hose or pipe hookups, and vents on the exterior of your home. Be sure to especially check the hose hookups that lead to your home from your air conditioning unit. If you see gaps or cracks use a product like Red Devil’s Foam & Fill Large Gaps & Cracks Polyurethane Sealant to create an airtight, waterproof seal. Be sure to use a foam that contains no HCFCs or CFCs so that it’s better for the environment.
Filling in the gaps and cracks around your home helps keep your utility bills down, keeps water and insects out, which improves the value of your home, and just makes you feel more comfortable knowing you are protected.
