I got the thing apart - I used some of the small wooden shims like a wedge to allow my knife blade to get inside the crack to cut the caulk. I am now in the process of cleaning up the remnants of...

I am certain that they are not full width. Probably nicer looking ones on the sides that were 'seen' years ago, and smaller stuff on the inside. This is all held together with horse hair and mud,...

The caulk pulls away from the shower walls. Could be moisture behind the walls, maybe I did not let enough time between caulk jobs. I did let a few days for it to cure. I think the pure silicone...

I don't know the brand or if it was 100% silicone, or some sort of variant. That tube is long gone. The surround walls were applied to fresh greenboard, I assume they were some sort of plastic, as...

I installed a shower a few months back, and it had panels that glue onto the walls, and then all the seams got a caulk - I used a kitchen and bath. That caulk failed a few weeks back - I had water...

I was at home depot, and I saw something they have called allure. It's a 12by 36 inch piece. When pieces are put in place, they bond to each other, but do NOT bond to the floor. Once down they can...

I went and returned the sink. This was at Lowe's. I then walked to the area where they were at, and the guy told me that none fit right. They only had one, so I took it along, even though he told...
