Pls evaluate this caulking job (pics--hope it's not too huge!)
I hired a handyman to do some work in my bathrooms, several different things. DH is supervising while I'm at work. He's a wimp, and unobservant. And he worries a lot about offending tradesman, and he chats them up when they're here--it's as if he really can only operate in "social" mode.
When I came home and looked at the caulking job on the tub and the shower, I wasn't all that happy. He sort of acted like he thought I was being too picky, so I'm second-guessing myself.
So, I don't feel like I can trust him, and now I don't feel like I can trust me. Please, would you look at these pics, and tell me what you think?
These are of the shower; it's a stall shower from the 1920s, and there's a vertical marble slab that divides the shower from the rest of the tiny bathroom. This is the outside seam, where the marble slab meets the tiled floor, and where the marble slab ends at the doorframe. This is what you see when you sit on the toilet.
This set is from the tub. The tub was reglazed a few years ago, and the guy who did that job did a crappy job caulking--he used clear, and then he blobbed it all up the tub-surround wall for an inch or so. We coverd it up w/ that self-adhesive tape. Once we had the new guy remove the tape, of course the reglazing pulled up. I said, "Ignore it, I don't blame you in the least, and just recaulk, for safety's sake. Maybe I'll get the tub reglazed. Just caulk nicely." I think he tried to cover the dings in the paint job--but you notice he did squat to the mildew-stained caulk in the corners!
