Weatherization: Protect Your Building During Monsoon Season

Aug 17, 2021 | Caulking, Waterproofing, Weatherization, Window Sealant | 0 comments

According to the National Weather Service Forecast Office in Phoenix, the Valley has received 3.37 inches of rainfall since June 15, the beginning of the annual monsoon season. They announced this using the @NWSPhoenix Twitter feed, adding that Phoenix typically receives 1.45 inches of rain from June 15 through August 17.

Recent storms have flooded busy streets, caused power outages, scattered debris everywhere, and caused trees to snap.

It has been a very active season, with the agency frequently releasing flash flood and dust storm advisories, warning Arizonans of hazardous weather conditions.

The season also runs until September 30, meaning it’s not too late to take proactive measures to protect your commercial or industrial property. Ideally, you should consider having a professional silicone sealant company weatherize the property to prevent water from seeping into the building, potentially causing substantial damage during a storm.

What is Weatherization?

Weatherization refers to optimizing the energy efficiency of a building by preventing the flow of air, wind, and moisture from moving in unwanted directions. It typically involves sealing any areas where water can pool up and seep into the building. That includes but may not be limited to your building’s windows, doors, and joints.

There are many possible benefits of weatherization, including:

  • Enhanced comfort
  • Reduced noise pollution
  • Better humidity control
  • Increased energy efficiency
  • Improved indoor air quality (IAQ)
  • Possible savings on heating and cooling costs

It is essential to have all weatherization services performed by a professional silicone sealant company. Royalty Sealants will look for structural cracking, joint system failure, and porosity of the vertical walls to determine the work necessary to identify project compatible materials and properly seal the building from the elements.

Our company specializes in the installation of caulking and joint systems designed to prevent a myriad of water intrusion and deterioration problems. Proper caulking, especially between dissimilar building elements, can protect your valuable assets and prevent costly liabilities not only during monsoon season but year-round.
