What Leads to the Recurring Failure of Shower Caulk?
The only reason for caulk peeling off is water penetrating the grout and infiltrating the area underneath the tile. Shower Caulk tends to peel off in wet settings. The dampness also leads to mold breeding, which further deteriorates the adhesive applied beneath the tile. When the temperature conditions are too dry, caulk tends to shrink and crack, leading to gaps in the shower corners. Water gets stagnant here and leads to mold development. Caulking is not a permanent solution but Sentura is.
Examples of Caulk Failure in Showers:
