This makes them a critical component in the life of your building. There are vertical expansion joints on the outside of buildings, and there are also horizontal expansion joints inside buildings in the floor, so they don’t crack out. Properly maintaining them involves having your joints re-caulked routinely to make sure your building does not fall victim to the weather....cracked floor joint
