Reasons for Bathroom Remodels
Several reasons may warrant a bathroom remodel. If your fixtures and installations are in poor condition or outdated, remodeling becomes a necessity. Outdated fixtures can also lead to increased water consumption and utility bills. By using new and energy-efficient fixtures during a remodel, along with updating outdated pipes, you can reduce water usage and save money. Bathroom remodel services are also essential for enhancing functionality, improving safety, and adding your personal touch.

WONDERING WHAT TYPE OF CAULK IS SUITABLE FOR SHOWER TILE?
The two most common options are pure silicone and siliconized latex/acrylic caulk for bathroom fixtures, such as tubs, sinks, ceramic tiles, and glass mirrors.
Pure silicone caulk offers superior durability and longevity. It boasts excellent water resistance and provides better defense against mildew, rot, and heat expansion-induced cracking. However, pure silicone caulk is less paintable compared to other alternatives. It can last up to 40 years or even longer.
On the other hand, siliconized latex and acrylic caulk are easier to apply and correct if any mistakes occur during application—especially when compared to the more rigid nature of pure silicone caulk. However, it is less resistant to water, moisture, and natural degradation, resulting in a shorter lifespan of approximately 30 to 40 years.
When it comes to grout or caulk around a bathtub, grout is primarily used to secure floor and wall tiles. During bathroom renovations, remodeling, and repairs, caulk is the preferred choice for fixtures, lamps, and anything that isn't stationary.
Caulk is more versatile, allowing for easy adjustments, modifications, and reshaping even after it sets. It is suitable for patching up cracks, seams, and holes in bathroom fixtures such as showers, bathtubs, and sinks. Caulk offers greater water resistance and has a wider range of applications and application methods. Grout, on the other hand, is more rigid and specifically used for fixing certain types of problems. The choice between grout and caulk for your bathtub and other bathroom fixtures depends on the specific repairs needed.
