If you’ve lived in your house a few years, you probably noticed that the caulk along your sinks, counter tops and bathtub is coming loose. These gaps may not seem like a big deal, but they can wreak havoc inside your walls. Moisture causes mold and even leaks – expensive repairs that can easily be prevented.

A tube of kitchen and bath caulk costs just a few dollars, and you’ll avoid expensive repairs. A great hint to make your new caulk look smooth and nice is to run an ice cube over it after applying, while it’s still wet. This will give it a nice smooth edge. If you aren’t sure whether you have an issue, a home inspection can help find minor problems before they become major expensive problems. I recommend a home inspection every few years.

Even if you don’t have a leak or an issue, new caulk can give your bathrooms and kitchen a facelift and make it more appealing to potential buyers. If you aren’t comfortable taking on this project on your own, or if you don’t have time to mess with it, please contact me and I’d be happy to recommend a great handyman to help.
