Resin base molding
White semi-gloss paint
Willie is a postal employee that travels 360 days a year, and has little time to work on his century old studio cottage in downtown Chino, California. The problem Willie had was his bathroom floor had a large gap in the tile and the wall area. The area needed a cove base molding, a product that would not produce mold and could be used near a shower. Resin molding comes in white and looks like plastic in case it gets wet.
This post shows the eight steps to replacing the resin cove base molding and caulking it to the wall and floor.
Step 1. The Home Depot molding had several choices, but the resin cove base molding stood out. The dimensions of the molding were two and half inches in height by eight feet in length. It was the perfect application because the molding would never produce mold, and it was priced right at eight dollars.
Step 2. Fig.1 shows the resin molding and adhesive glue.
Step 3. Fig.2 shows the first piece of molding, the first cut is for the first corner and was cut at 45 degrees.

Step 5. Fig.4 shows a top view of both corners, in preparation for caulking.
Step 6. Fig.5 shows the Delta saw teeth on the resin molding. As a precaution the person using the saw should use adjust mask and safety goggles.
Step 7. Fig.6 and fig.7 shows that latex caulking was used on wall and the edge of the molding and on the floor.
