If the air barrier is damaged, it must be repaired. The materials used must provide at least the same level of airtightness as the original construction. Gun-applied sealants are usually suitable for sealing around service penetrations. Larger openings through walls and floors can often be filled with mortar.

Holes or tears in membranes can be sealed with appropriate adhesive tapes or heat welded patches. Not all sealants will be appropriate, though: some, such as intumescent fire stop materials, may still allow air leakage even though they fill voids.
