Re-caulking Shower, quick question...


Need to re-caulk top edge of shower/bathtub, but the caulking along the side edges seems fine. Can I just redo the top edge, or do I need to remove and redo all the caulking all the way around, even if it seems fine, and redo everything?

No reason to redo anything that's not failing or molding up.

Just make sure you get a tight seal at the corners where old caulking meets new or you could develop problems where they join up.

If this is old silicone caulk you have to carve out remember new silicone will not stick to old.

What kind of caulk? I thought you might be a troll and the moderators will check for IP address. Sorry if not.
