Silicone is a useful product with many applications in and around the house due to its durability. For instance, in bathrooms, it’s used to seal shower trays, sinks, and baths. In the kitchen, it’s used to get that perfect ‘fillet’ finish effect between tile and work surface.
It is also widely used to seal around window frames. However, like most things it has a service life and can begin to look ‘tired’ and or underperform allowing water to seep into places it’s not supposed to go i.e. under the shower tray/bath leading to a flood, rot, or a build-up of mould which can lead to possible health risks and expensive repairs.
Silicone around window frames usually lasts for decades but on a shower tray or bath that is constantly subject to movement, the silicone can become detached causing problems relatively quickly.
If you notice any areas that are beginning to peel back or break loose causing water to leak into your bathroom it’s probably time to get it repaired or renewed before any permanent water damage. At serviceteam Ltd we have trade professionals who have years of experience in this field ready to serve you 24/7 all across London.

What you get
We operate all over Greater London and surrounding areas.
Q: How often should the bath and shower trays be resealed?
A: Well, it depends on the usage. Used twice a day 365 day a year will of course accelerate the need to repair or replace the silicon. Tell-tale signs: excessive build-up of mould, flaking silicon, damp patches as water seeps between the silicone and bath edge or shower tray to the floor below. Noticeable damp musty smells in the bathroom or rooms nearby. All of these signs can suggest it is time to re-silicone.
Q: How long does it take for the silicone to take effect?
A: Generally, a sealant should be left for 24 hours to cure and seal properly to guarantee a leak free joint. Even with the best materials able to accelerate the drying process we still recommend a 24-hour period to err on the side of caution. One of the biggest causes of failure is impatience, short cutting the recommended drying/curing time and tempting failure, resulting in the job having to be redone, not something you want? Our tradesperson of course will advise you upon completion of the project. Serviceteam Ltd. only the best high-quality waterproof latex sealants for your project.
Q: How much does it cost?
A: After the survey (eyes on, or from photos) and depending on the magnitude of the work i.e., removal and replacement of the silicone which can be time consuming, we will provide you with a fixed price quotation (again no surprises). We will not proceed until approval has been received.
Q: Do you need to remove the old silicone first before applying new silicone?
A: Yes! If you decide to apply a new silicone sealant it's necessary to completely remove all the old/damages/aged layer/s, otherwise, it won’t adhere/seal correctly and you will be back to square one!
Q; How do I remove silicone residue?
A: Although our tradespeople will do everything related to the task you may want to tackle it yourself in preparation for our tradespersons visit? If you do, here are a few tips:

When on site our engineer will appraise the works required and give an indication of how long the works are expected to take. If we are unable to complete the works within the first visit due to the need for extra time or materials, then we will provide you with a fixed price quotation for the extended works for consideration and authorization before proceeding.

How do refunds work?

What if I want to cancel the appointment?
We understand that priorities and plans change, and you may need to rearrange/cancel your booking. Should this be the case please let us know as soon as possible so we can make the necessary alterations to our work schedules. If we don’t receive enough notice of your cancellation or appointment rescheduling within the terms outlined below, then there is a possibility you will be charged a cancellation fee.
(1.) A charge of £10.00 (ten pounds) will be payable if the service is cancelled within 24 hours. (2.) If the scheduled appointment is cancelled within 12 hours (or less) a 50% charge of the booking fee will be applied (3.) If the appointment is cancelled when engineer arrives at the property (on the doorstep - photos and times will be provided) and within our texted 3-hour time slot the full booking fee will become payable. None of the above charges are profit items and only contribute to the cost of late cancellation/lost business.
Do I need to provide parking?
As you know parking in and around London can be problematic and extremely costly (depending on the area) if a parking space can be reserved for our engineer it would be appreciated and help increase efficiency of the service provided (no feeding meters etc or mobile app updating). The quote we have provided does not include the cost of parking and/or congestion charge which will be added to the final invoice (if applicable). Please inform your personal account manager if any special parking instructions like parking permit/free parking can be provided. For properties on the rim of the congestion zone and it is not possible for our engineer to attend without entering/clipping the charge zone, we may need to add the charge to the final bill ? Please check with your personal account manager in advance of your appointment if you’re not sure?
