Caulking or Siliconing
The caulking around your tub, shower, sink, is a vital piece of protection against water damage.
In time, most caulk will mould, dry up, peel, or crack. If ignored, exposed caulk or grout joints can result in severe water damage and costly repairs. In extreme cases, a complete tear-out or replacement is needed.
It is important to maintain the caulking around areas exposed to water. New caulking will even drastically improve the look of an existing tubs, showers, sinks, etc.
Be on the lookout for mouldy or worn caulk. Save Money!
In addition to saving money on costly water damage repairs, having Shine-a-Bath technician caulk your bathroom will save you time and the cost of materials.
This service applied by a trained technician and often called re-siliconing also includes removal of old existing sealant and replacing it with a high quality smooth silicon sealant to suit your need.
It’s important to keep the silicone in good condition otherwise water will leak and cause damage. Silicone will also discolour over time. Sometimes black spots will appear which are caused by dampness, leading to mildew.
It may still be water tight but you want to renew it for purely cosmetic reasons.
