Just a quick question here, in my parents bathroom the skirting boards need repairing, noticed that there is a bit of a gap between the skirting boards and the vinyl floor, as shown in the one pic, there's also a slight gap between the vinyl floor and the shower base (also between a small cupboard and floor too) – is it worth filling this at all, either with caulk or a sealant?
Cheers for the reply, any particular one(s) best for the job?
One other question, should it be applied around the base of the toilet as well, and if so all around the base? (Seems to be train of thought that you shouldn't seal/caulk al the way around a toilet base in case it leaks)
Hi dagdave No silicone cannot be painted. Suggested clear because it will not show very much. If you are not sure about you sealing skills use a line of masking tape 1-2mm above the bottom of the skirting, remove this before the silicone sets. Regards S
