Shower Corner Treatment

Finally finished the tile and grout in our shower remodel with much help from many on this site. It looks awesome.


At vertical plane changes and the floor to wall transitions I was planning on using Custom Building Products commercial silicone to match my grout (Fusion Pro).

I put a line of the silicone and some of the grout on a piece of waste tile, and while the color of the silicone is fairly good, the lack of sand in the silicone bugs me.

Custom also make a sanded caulk that they say is "siliconized". I'm sure outside of the shower this is fine, but what about the wet location inside the shower? Can I used the "siliconized" caulk in my shower? Strictly a cosmetic concern, but at this point I sure as hell don't need to make a mistake. Just being anal.

Hi Peter,

Short answer: no.

If the caulking cleans up with water it's not very good in a shower. There are sanded silicone caulks out there, but my memory is getting bad to nonexistant. Stand by.

Thank you John and Richard. You told me what I thought. I think I will stick with the Customs Silicone since the color is good.

Custom does make a 100% silicone which would be fine in the wet area. The Polyblend color matched siloconized acrylic latex is not what you want in the wet area.

The Colorrite color matched 100% silicone is an excellent product. I think their product matches the color of Customs grout better than Customs own caulk.
