McLaughlin has experience in both structural and non structural glazing.
Proper preparation is 90% of the job, and depending on the condition there are different ways to address the preparation. As with joint sealants, we take proper care in knowing and using the correct cleaning agents for the type of sealant we will be applying.
To provide a neat sealant sight line, we mostly use masking tape to reduce sealant smears. After application of the sealant, a bead tooling is a crucial part to any re-glazing while our applicators look for any signs of air pockets and/or voids.
For larger projects, we request that the manufacturer come on-site to conduct pull tests for record keeping.
