The Green Team - RE/MAX Signature Properties


There are plenty of DIY projects that you can find around your home. Some of these activities save you more time and money than others. Many times, trying to tackle a project on your own reaps more benefits and feels more rewarding. Re-caulking your shower is something that needs to be done to protect your bathroom. It’s a fairly simple project that can be done in a day’s time, so with the right instructions, you can avoid hiring a professional. By completing the project, you’ll also avoid the need for costly repairs down the road.  


Cracks in the shower happen due to a natural expanding and contracting of the walls based on changes in temperature and humidity. The seams of your tub are also vulnerable to these changes since these seams are affected and jarred when people step in and out of the tub. 


While this all sounds kind of complicated, doing the job of re-caulking yourself can really save you a lot of money in the long term. Noticing that there is a potential problem with your tub is the first step to saving money, as it will prevent bigger repairs from being necessary later on.  


Here’s What You’ll Need:


Water or silicone based caulk

Knife

Rags


First, you’ll need to prepare your shower. You should clean both the shower and tub thoroughly. This will get all of the residue and mildew off of your walls. Next, you’ll need to dig out all of the old caulking from the seams of the tub and the shower. The idea here is to leave a clean slate to put in the new caulking. 


Now, you’re ready to apply the new caulking. Cut the opening of the applicator to 1/8 inch in diameter. Next, squeeze out the caulking continuously in long lines. Caulk dries fast, so you’ll need to complete this task one section at a time. 


Finally, you’ll want to smooth the line that you have created from the caulking. As soon as you lay the caulking, you should smooth it with your finger. Then, wipe away any excess caulk with a rag. You can reform any joints with warm, soapy water and your fingers. If any excess caulk dries around the tile, use the knife to remove it. You really should be prepared to get your hands dirty for this project.       


You should wait about 12 hours to use the shower to allow the new caulking to dry completely. This simple do-it-yourself project can really make your bathroom look better and cleaner.
