Resealing Bath and Shower Tray
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.

What you get
We operate all over 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 repair/replacement. A general rule of thumb would be approximately every 2-years. To meet or exceed this ‘rule of thumb’ we use only the best high-quality waterproof latex sealants for your project.
Q: How long should you leave the bath sealant?
A: Generally, a sealant should be left for 24 hours to cure and seal to be absolutely sure. Even with the best materials that can accelerate the drying process we would still recommend a full 24 hours to be on the safe side. Disappointingly we have read of quick drying silicone that hasn’t properly ‘cured’ (drying time too short or impatience) resulting in the job having to be redone, not something we want. Our tradesperson of course will advise you upon completion of the project.
Q: How much does it cost?
A:After the survey (physical 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 sealant before you apply a new one?
A: Yes! If you decide to apply a new silicone sealant it’s necessary to completely remove the old/damages/aged layer, otherwise, it won’t adhere/seal correctly and you will be back to square one!
Q; How do I remove silicone residue on my own?
A: Although our tradespeople will do everything related to the task you may want to tackle it yourself If so here are a few tips:
- Score the surface of the silicone, spray with WD-40 – leave for 20 minutes. Wait for it to soften and then vigorously remove with a sealant removal tool (plastic) to prevent damage to the surroundings areas.
- A professional chemical sealant remover is also available at any retailers.
- You can also use a sharp knife or razor blade but make sure the razorblade is held firmly similar to a retractable razor blades scraper used for windows, glass or glue (always put safety first when using sharp implements).
- After cleaning the surface, wait for it to thoroughly dry off before applying the new silicone.
