      I’m using a Mapei 100″ silicone grout-matched caulk for tile corners and edges, including where the tile butts the ceiling. My question is, should I wait until the ceiling is painted to make that caulk line since the caulk, I assume, is not paintable? Seems like I might get a better line if I wait. What’s your practice?

      Hey Doug

      At the ceiling joint…..I’ve stopped using the matching grout caulk for that. I’ve found it looks better to just caulk with a siliconized latex caulk and paint it with the ceiling.   I’ve never had great luck with caulking that with a colored caulk and look that great. That being said, my joints at ceiling are 1/16″ or less, so it might depend on the size you have
