caulking tub enclosure
We recently put in a new tub enclosure. I thought I did everything right prior to caulking. I used painters' tape on BOTH sides of all seams (around the tub and wall). I filled the tub with water. Quite soon the seams started showing signs of cracking. Now it looks like the caulk is pulling away. It almost looks like it didn't stick. I used DAP that is for tubs. I'm going to have to do this again. If anyone can give me any hints I will take them to heart.
