Over time like many things in your home or commercial property, caulking starts to get deteriorated. Signs of this include rips and tears in your caulking or the color becoming distorted. If you feel cold air creeping in , or are constantly having to raise your heat due to lack of proper insulation this could be due to worn out caulking that isn’t keeping in your warm air and is letting cold air seep in. If you notice an increased amount of insects around your home, they could be sneaking in through poor caulking.
