The Basics Of Caravan Resealing


What is Resealing?


Caravan resealing involves applying a protective sealant to the external seams, joints, and openings of your caravan. This sealant acts as a barrier against water, preventing leaks and potential damage to the structural integrity of your beloved home away from home.

Why Does Resealing Matter?


Water Ingress Prevention:

The primary purpose of caravan resealing is to fortify your caravan against water ingress. Water has a knack for finding its way into tiny openings, and over time, this can lead to extensive damage, including rot, mildew, and compromised insulation.

Structural Integrity:

A well-sealed caravan maintains its structural integrity. By preventing water damage, resealing contributes to the overall durability of your caravan, ensuring it stands the test of time and miles traveled.

Mold and Mildew Prevention:

Water ingress is not just a structural concern; it also creates a conducive environment for mold and mildew growth. Resealing acts as a proactive measure against these unwanted guests, promoting a healthier living space.

Cost-Effective Maintenance:

Regular resealing is a cost-effective preventive measure. Addressing water damage can be significantly more expensive than routine resealing, making it a wise investment in the long-term health of your caravan.

Signs Your Caravan Needs Resealing

Visible Cracks or Gaps:

If you notice cracks or gaps around seams, windows, or doors, it’s a clear indication that your caravan may benefit from resealing.

Damp or Musty Odors:

Unpleasant odors, especially those accompanied by dampness, suggest possible water ingress. Prompt resealing can prevent further complications.

Discoloration or Stains:

Stains on interior surfaces or discoloration of walls and ceilings may be indicative of water leaks. Resealing can address these issues before they escalate.

Discoloration or Stains:

We encourage our customers to have their seals inspected as part of their 12 monthly service. Depending on the age of the caravan and how it is stored, seals should be inspected every 12 months to 2 years.
