Caulking Bathtub (Using Pour-On Application)

Corner

What is caulking and why is it important? Simply put, caulking is sealing the joint between the tub and the wall. It’s important that this area is protected from damage caused by hard water stains, mold and impacts.

Plastic molding is commonly used to seal the joint, but, it doesn’t always fit perfectly in the gap between the tub and the wall so water can leak behind it and cause damage.

On the other hand, caulking forms a tight seal because it forms to the shape of the tub. Caulking with ArmoGlaze provides a protective moisture-proof shield at the joint where the tub meets the wall. It’s one less thing to worry about because it stays new looking and resists stains and damage.

In most standard homes and apartments, the bathtub is installed close to the wall, so the joint between the tub and the wall is sealed and molding is placed over it. This is done to prevent water from seeping into the joint and causing damage to the wall. If the water seepage is extensive, it can even leak into lower floors of the building, leading to costly repairs.

Unfortunately, this method has several disadvantages:

  • The plastic molding is thin and fragile so it’s easily damaged by even the slightest blow. Also, over time it can start to crack or break.

  • Once the molding is damaged, water can seep into the wall behind. This requires frequent replacement of the molding.

  • Buildup of moisture can cause mold and microorganisms to grow. The black mold that appears is not only unsightly but also dangerous to you and your family. Mold remediation can be complicated and costly.

  • Water stains and rust can build up on the molding, spoiling the look of the entire bathroom.

As you can see, plastic molding is not an ideal solution to seal the joint between the tub and the wall. It’s easily damaged and prone to water seepage. But there’s a better alternative that’s attractive, durable, and reliable: the professionals at New York Tubs apply ArmoGlaze liquid acrylic to caulk the edge of bathtubs and eliminate all these problems.

Benefits of ArmoGlaze for Caulking Corners

What is ArmoGlaze? It’s an advanced acrylic material made of a proprietary blend of polymers that provides a strong, reliable coating resistant to mold, mildew, and other damage. Its smooth, dense finish makes it easy to clean and maintain, so it’s an ideal choice for homeowners and property managers alike. This breakthrough material is key in sealing the gap between the tub and the wall, providing a robust and lasting solution.

ArmoGlaze is applied using the pour-on method to leave a thick, even finish. Consider the benefits of caulking with this modern material to seal the joint between the wall and the bathtub:

  • No bacteria

    The acrylic surface is resistant to microbes, eliminating the growth of mold. Silver nanoparticles can also be added to the liquid acrylic to enhance its ability to neutralize most harmful microorganisms.

  • Durability

    ArmoGlaze is incredibly strong and durable. It can withstand impacts from dropped objects or other blows without chipping or cracking, so it doesn’t need to be replaced frequently like plastic molding does.

  • Moisture resistance

    It’s waterproof, so the seal prevents moisture from seeping into the wall. This keeps the wall free from water damage and saves property owners from expensive repair and restoration.

  • Newness

    ArmoGlaze repels dirt and water, so it doesn’t stain or fade. Even rust stains don’t build up on the surface, so it stays clean and snow-white for many years.

Pricing

Some bathtubs have larger gaps, so extra caulk needs to be added before applying the ArmoGlaze. This service starts at $25, which is a great investment when you consider all the benefits. The extra caulk will ensure a tight seal and add durability to the finish

My tub was peeling and had unsightly rubber flowers on it meant to prevent slippage. New York Tubs fixed it for me, at what I thought was a fair price, and now you’d never know how bad it looked. All good!

Artem did a phenomenal job on my tub! My tub was probably one of the worst he’s ever seen and had about 60 years of damage and terrible repairs. He went above and beyond with his work! We are renovating our terribly old bathroom and we came across some unrelated plumbing issues, and he generously offered to come back the next day to complete the job! I couldn’t recommend him enough, he was absolutely terrific!

I've had a few bathtubs refinished, this is by far the best. The technician was a gentleman who arrived on time and worked in a professional manner. I would recommend this company to my friends and would obviously hire them again.

Artem was on time, courteous, and very clean. What impressed me most was his attention detail as far as craft and that the product did not smell of terrible chemicals. The bathtub looks so good that I’m going to call him again for another tub in my building. A very trustworthy company.
