Should there be caulk around pedestal sink and toilet?
I'm making a list of final issues I need the contractor to fix before we pay the final labor bill.
We used Laticrete Permacolor grout in Silver Shadow and bought the matching caulk. The plumber caulked the toilet and pedestal sink base and I really think it detracts from the look of the fixtures on the hex tile floor. My DH doesn't really care either way, so I can decide if I want to ask for it to be removed, but I thought I should check with the GW experts before doing so.
We're in TN and I really don't know what the code requirements are here.
What are your opinions/advice? Is there a good reason for the caulk in these places, or would we be fine without it?
