What Is a Sealant Finisher?
A sealant finisher is a tool that is designed to make the job of sealing much easier. They can be used to smooth down sealant into a crack or joint to create that smooth sealant finish that everyone tries to create when sealing.
Creating that smooth sealant finish is what these tools are best known for. Wherever you need to seal, these finishers have got you covered. They are great for use in your bathroom, kitchen and on windows and doors too. They come in so handy in lots of ways and a great sealant finisher should be in everyone's tool kit.
What Are Sealants?
Sealants are flexible materials that are used to stop things like water and air from passing through surfaces, therefore creating an airtight seal and one that is more often than not a waterproof seal too.
There are many different types of sealants out there on the market that you can buy. Different types of sealants are useful for different things. The more common types of sealants that you will often find in the construction and glazing industry include sealants made from materials such as:
Sealants are useful and they can even save you a lot of money on your energy bills. Save putting your heating on and create a fix to those pesky drafts by sealing any air from entering your home, thus making it warmer by trapping the heat. With energy bills being higher than they have ever been before, it might be worth taking a look into the old sealant on your windows and doors before the weather gets too cold.

Get That Perfect Finish
Get a perfect finish every time with our handy set of four. If you are wondering why it might be important to get that perfect sealant finish, then we are here to tell you at GGR Glass.
Firstly, having a neat sealant is something you will want to work towards achieving. It gives a professional finish which will firstly look visually appealing and neat in your home, and not only that but getting that neat finish is to serve a purpose too.
Almost all sealants have got to be waterproof, both in their material and the way they have been sealed. An incorrectly sealed joint will let in moisture, causing mould and dampness to form. If left untreated the leaky seal will get worse, so it is important to seal correctly in the first place to avoid this.
It takes some practice along with some skill to get the perfect sealant finish. It takes a professional glazier a while to perfect the skill of sealant perfectly every time. Once you have nailed the process, you can do it with ease. Help yourself create that perfect sealant with the help of our sealant finisher tool set.
Why You Should Use a Sealant Finishing Tool
You should use a sealant finishing tool, like this pack of four we have mentioned in this blog, as without a tool, sealing a crack can be a messy job.
As you squeeze sealant into a joint or crack it will undoubtedly be overflowing and rough when you squeeze it out of the tube. It is the job of the sealant finisher to smooth down the sealant before it sets and goes stiff.
With a sealant finisher, smoothing down the sealant can make for an easy and satisfying task to do. If you do not have a sealant finisher to hand for whatever reason, an alternative tool to use can include the end of an old toothbrush or even your dampened finger (a damp finger ensures the sealant does not stick to your skin).
