Before you start, give your tiles a good clean. You want to make sure the area is clear of any dust or debris around the tiles.
Cut the silicone nozzle at a 45° angle so that the silicone runs smoothly along the surface of the join. In this case, we are using a grey coloured silicone along the base to match the floor tiles and a white silicone up the wall to match the wall tiles.
Put your silicone container into the caulking gun. Apply the silicone generously along the join, starting from the centre and working your way out.
Asbestos, lead-based paints and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber are health hazards you need to look out for when renovating older homes. These substances can easily be disturbed when renovating and exposure to them can cause a range of life-threatening diseases and conditions including cancer. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page.
