Wisconsin Air Barrier and Caulking Services
Waukesha Masonry Contractors Install Reliable Air Barriers
The experienced masonry contractors from Cornerstone Restoration also provide repair and installation of air barriers. We are knowledgeable with a variety of air barrier styles and application processes. Air barriers are important for preventing air or vapor from leaking into or out of the home or building. There are many different types of materials and systems we are familiar with at Cornerstone Restoration.
Air Barrier Types: Peel-and-Stick vs Continuous Fluid Sprayed
The two main types of air barriers installed by Cornerstone Restoration are continuous fluid sprayed, and peel-and-stick. Deciding which air barrier to choose depends on the climate, type of building and a wide variety of other environmental factors. Our expert Waukesha masonry contractors will work with you to help you choose the most ideal air barrier for your home or building.
Continuous fluid sprayed air barriers are ideal for walls constructed out of permeable materials like concrete masonry units (CMUs). These are most commonly applied to the sheathing of the building to provide an air tight seal. Peel-and-stick air barriers are generally installed around the window and door perimeters. Cornerstone Restoration will answer any questions you may have about the air barriers we install.

How to Tell if There’s a Problem with Your Caulk
Discolored caulking is okay, but when you as a homeowner start to notice the following signs, it may be time to call in a professional to reseal your residence:
- Peeling or missing sections of caulking
- Noticeable air flow in already caulked areas
- Increased energy bills
Caulking is often seen as something that can be fixed “do it yourself style”. However, knowing exactly what areas need caulked, and making sure repairs look good rather than transform into a caked-on mess is a skill of its own. Let our Wisconsin caulking experts at Cornerstone Restoration handle it for you.
