A 4-story townhouse needed fresh caulking around all doors and windows. Not an easy job. Tom came to look at the job within a day or two of making the request. His experience and expertise set me at ease. The work was done by Jerry. He worked hard. He was polite, efficient and the work was of very high quality. It looks fantastic. I highly recommend this company.
Tom was a pleasure to work with, he provided me with a quote on a timely manner and was in touch soon after to schedule the work.
Showed up on time! And Jerry did clean and effective replacement of the window caulking.
Tom and his team were very professional courteous. They executed all the work and cleaned up after it was completed. It has been couple months already and the job still looks great and clean. I would recommend this company to my friends and family who needs this service.

About Fire Caulking
Fire caulking is a specialized sealant used to prevent the spread of fire through openings and gaps in walls, floors, and ceilings. This sealant is designed specifically to expand when exposed to heat and fill any voids in the structure. Fire caulking can be made of materials like silicone, intumescent acrylic, or other fire-resistant compounds that provide a barrier to prevent the spread of fire and smoke.
In the unfortunate event of a fire, fire caulking can add valuable time for a building to be safely evacuated. By mitigating the spread of fire, fire caulking can also limit property damage and the cost of rehabilitation and repair.
Choose a company that understands the importance of quality fire caulking, and that will install fire caulking in compliance with all industry standards and Ontario regulations.

Fire Rated Caulk Designed for High Technical Performance
We use fire rated caulk that complies with the strictest industry standards. Our installation methods also comply with these standards.
Fire rated caulk provides excellent technical performance to stop fire spread. Areas of installation to comply with Ontario Building Code requirements include…
- Joints and gaps
- Penetrations for pipes, conduits, HVAC ducts, etc
- Window and door frames
We’ll install fire rated caulk with a specialized applicator gun and it will be smoothed to ensure an aesthetic appearance that also offers safety and peace of mind.
The airtight seal is important for fire rated caulk to achieve its intended technical performance. Application and the choice of material are important. Fire rated caulk maintains the integrity of fire-rated barriers, so it’s important to choose a service provider that won’t cut corners.
Fire rated caulk can contain different materials but the key ingredient is often a water-based acrylic intumescent. The term intumescent describes how the material performs when exposed to heat. It expands in volume while decreasing in density when heated, but the density remains sufficient to prevent gases from passing through. This is what stops smoke and fire from spreading. The material essentially isolates fire by cutting off its air supply.
The caulking can maintain its integrity when heated, for around three to four hours. This is adequate time for evacuation and for a fire to be contained. When combined with efficient building design and other firestop materials/design features, it plays an important role in the safety of commercial and industrial buildings.
