I would have to disagree with that. If caulk isn’t done PERFECTLY it tends to break away and you end up with cracks that allow water to enter. The water then migrates to other areas where it’s sealed up and can’t escape leaving areas that never dry. I think that’s what Darcy is talking about.

Dan would have you believe that grout at change of plane will always crack. That’s not true. I’ve never had a grouted corner crack. AND if it did I would prefer it over caulk. Anyone.... most anyone can make grout look good. Caulk on the other hand can be very tricky and very messy. Besides, a cracked grout joint is purely aesthetic. Nothing more.
