Some tilers will try it on if you are not on the ball.
This tip explains how you need to caulk the corners so that you don’t end up with a defect on your building report.
Hello! It's Bernadette Janson and today's tip is in the bathroom.
So we're going to be talking about the joint between the wall tiles and the corners and also the corner between the floor and the wall. So that joint needs to be something flexible it needs to be filled with Silicon and not Grout and if you don't know this often tilers will fill it with grout and the first thing you know about it is when it turns up on a building report as a defect. And the reason why that's an issue, is not about the law, it's about the functionality of it.
Grout is inflexible where it's silicone is flexible and when as time goes on and there's a bit of movement if you've got brass in that joint it will come in and start to fall away and then that will start to break down the waterproof membrane by filling that with silicon it's flexible so if there's any movement it will stay in place. And the waterproofness of your bathroom will stay intact.
I hope that helps!
