My sister called last night with some questions I couldn't answer. Any body
got any ideas on these?
Sister bought a "new to her" house, its about 200 miles away, and I have
not seen it, so please bear with my probably poor and inaccurate written
In master bath, hasa walk in type shower stall. No "step" over to get into
it. Shower walls are tiled she tells me. Says there is a "soft rubbery"
line of caulking along the seam / joint of the shower "floor" (I think she
means the pan) and the tile, which she says is very dirty and coming out in
little strips. From her description of this joint, and her description of
what is between he tiles, she clearly knows the difference between grout and
what ever is in the lower seam /
My gut reaction is that the lower seam/joint is sealed with some kind of
caulking, silicon or otherwise.
How to remove the old caulk, and what to relace it with.
My instant reaction last might was a utility knife and a lot of patient
scraping and cutting. Maybe also a small, small flat bladed screw driver to
scrape the old caulk out with?
As to recaulking, a silicon caulk, either clear or white? Alex is one brand
I know of, and there are several versions of GE brand silicon caulks. Any
