Resealing a Leaking Shower in Rustington Village with Silicone Sealant

Updated: Sep 20, 2023


In my recent project, I had the opportunity to tackle a very common issue many homeowners face– a leaking bath. This particular job took place in Rustington Village, a location that adds its unique charm to every project!


The challenge at hand was straightforward but crucial for the homeowner. The silicon mastic around the bath had deteriorated over time, leading to leaks. This not only caused inconvenience but also posed a risk of damage to the surrounding areas.

Mastic Man Objectives

For this project, the objectives were clear:

  1. Reseal the Bath: My primary goal was to reseal the bath effectively, addressing the leak issue promptly.

  2. Enhance Aesthetics: Besides functionality, I aimed to enhance the visual appeal of the bathroom by using white silicon for the horizontal areas and a stylish Matt grey silicone for the vertical corners.

Silicone Sealant Solution

Drawing from my experience as a mastic man, I set to work. Following the steps outlined in my job description, I ensured a meticulous approach:

  • Assessment: I began by thoroughly examining the existing silicon mastic, identifying areas that required removal and replacement.

  • Preparation: Proper surface preparation is key to a successful seal. I cleaned and measured the surfaces, ensuring they were free from debris and moisture.

  • Application: Using a caulking gun, I applied the new silicon mastic with precision, filling gaps and sealing joints effectively.

  • Finishing Touches: To achieve a professional finish, I meticulously smoothed and shaped the mastic to perfection.

  • Curing: I allowed the applied mastic to dry and cure, ensuring its longevity and effectiveness.

My actions aligned with my commitment to providing waterproof, energy-efficient, and structurally sound solutions, just as I do in kitchens and bathrooms across residential, commercial, and industrial settings.


As the project came to a close, the outcomes were evident. The bath was now effectively resealed, with no leaks in sight. The choice of white and Matt grey silicone not only addressed the functional aspect but also added a touch of style to the bathroom.

Most importantly, the client was satisfied with the results, which is always the ultimate measure of success in my line of work.
