For Re-Caulking Your Bath and Shower in Wentzville, MO, Here’s Why You Should Hire a Professional
With all of the time spent at home during nearly all of 2020, we’ve all noticed aspects of our home that need to be spruced up or require repairs. One of the most common things we’ve been called about is re-caulking bathtubs, sinks, and showers. In most cases, the homeowners had attempted the project as DIYers. Don’t get us wrong, DIY projects are a great way to learn a new skill, but not when it comes to sealing your bathtub, sink, or shower. The reason it’s important to ensure there is a proper seal is to prevent tile water damage. Tile water damage can lead to the need of full tile water damage repairs. These can be, and mostly always are, much more expensive than a simple re-caulking project. If you don’t remove the old, bad caulk and replace it with new caulk that’s properly adhered to, then you’re just asking for trouble later down the road. For all your re-caulking in Wentzville, MO, call The Grout Medic of St. Louis today for a 100% free consultation at 314-408-6531!
Through our 100% free consultation, we’ll show you precisely which areas of your bath, shower, or sink need to be re-caulked. Caulking may seem like an extremely easy project, as it’s not too difficult, but knowing which type of caulk to use and how to properly apply the caulk can be where most homeowners run into trouble. We recommend using a caulk that’s clearly labeled “for bathroom use”, as it’s usually a silicone-based caulk. Stay away from acrylic caulk, as this will quickly become discolored and mold will grow on it very easily. Furthermore, the silicone caulk will last much longer and will help keep your bath, shower, and sink properly sealed to avoid any tile water damage. Again, we understand that a re-caulking project seems like a simple weekend project, but time and time again we’re called out to homes where this “simple” weekend project went awry. It’s never a pretty sight.

We’ll remove all your old, bad, caulk and apply new beads of caulk that will protect your bathroom areas from tile water damage. We do this every single day of the week, so it’s safe to say that we’re very experienced in caulking bathtubs, showers, and sinks. Ultimately, our goal is to revitalize the appearance of your tile, grout, and caulk, and can usually complete the project in just one day.
