Shower Floor/Wall Joints

OK all the tile is now installed. It was actually fun with my new Felker TM 75. No problem right out of the box except I don't like the little rubber flap at the back as it deflects water down onto the floor, but no big deal it's a great tool. Should of bought it years ago. I digress. Onto the question.

The floor wall joint.

Should this be caulk. If yes what type for a shower floor. If not can I just grout it.

Grout type . Any specific recommendations for shower ?

Also any recommmendations on sealer type.Lastly. I now need a custom bi-fold shower door. Does anyone know where I can order one or pick one up in the Houston area ?


Thanks in advance

Kevin

You caulk the wall-to-floor and wall-to-wall joints with silicone or siliconized acrylic caulks. You can find color matched caulk at your grout supplier.

Modified grout, sanded for groutlines 1/8" and wider, unsanded for 1/8" or smaller.

Sealer: stay away from Tile-Lab.

I dunno on the door.
