How to fix the gap between kitchen counter and wall ?
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hi there!

I am a new home owner. There is a very small gap between the kitchen counter and the wall. The gap extends about half way of the counter.

Sorry the attached picture is turned 90 degrees for some reason... The white surface is the wall.

Just wondering how I should fix this?

Thanks so much!

Best Regards,

Paul

The white stuff along the crack is silicone caulk, pick that out and clean it up and put in new, any hardware store.
BTW welcome;)

I was facing same problem of such gap. I bought silicone caulk as suggested by nealtw and filled the gap, don't know how long it will last. Did you tried this? I will definitely upload it's picks.

That angle threw me for a moment.
They have all different colored caulks. Clear too.

Underdog, thanks for fixing the orientation of the picture!

I think I will caulk it myself using "Silicone 2", and I will let yuou know how it goes.

This is how I fixed it.
