Re: Caulking a Shower Surround
I personally have never heard of such a thing.
The point of the surround is to keep moisture within the shower, they aren't supposed to let it get behind the surround walls. Every seam and joint in the shower should be caulked as well as the top edge, which prevents splashes and condensation from trickling down behind the surround.
I would recommend checking with the manufacturer for the proper installation and caulking procedure, as it doesn't sound to me like the installer knows what he's doing.
