How do I select the right silicone for my shower?

Hello! I'm new to this forum. Very glad it is here!

There's mold building up under and around the silicone in my 11-year-old shower (see photo). I want to remove the old silicone and install new stuff. Can anyone suggest what brand and type of silicone I can use to match the walls? How do I identify the correct color? And should I try to match the silicone to the quartz walls or the grout? Should I try a "translucent" silicone like the ColorRite TR-800 series?


ps. The image is sideways -- apologies!

Hi Chris,

I would use gray. I don't know who's silicone is the best. I use what I find at Home Depot or Lowes.

Chris, do you recall what grout was used (brand name and color)?

Home Depot sells Custom brand caulk and silicone in their tile section. They don't sell all colors, just the most popular ones. You might find something close there. They have a color chart you can take home.
