Caulking around a shower involves the removal of the old caulk. This is followed by a thorough cleanup to prepare the surface to accept the new caulk. The cost of materials is minimal. The preparation time required depends on the condition and type of the existing caulk.

If you are a contractor or a handyman, how much would this job cost in your area?

Low Price: $100

Consensus Price: $175

High Price: $280

  1. During the last month I did this for 2 customers. The first job took about 4 hours to complete. At $40-hr labor 30 minutes for driving time and $15 for supplies the total came to $195.

    The second shower room was bigger and it took 6 hours to complete. At $40-hr labor 30 minutes for driving time and $20 for supplies the total came to $280.

  2. Not a hard project so I would charge $30.00 an hour with an additional $40.00 charge for drive time material and picking up supplies. It is hard to estimate a time but I would say 3 to 4 hours.

What would a fair price be?
