Before you begin the remodeling process, you will need to gather the right tools and supplies. The tools you will need including plumbing tools such as clamps, caulking guns, and the like. You should also have some sort of helper handy who can hold the clamps that are used for caulking and another who can hold the caulking gun that is used to seal the tub’s seams.
Next, you will need to make sure that all of the plumbing in your tub is clear of debris. You will also need to make sure that there are no leaks in your tub. You will need to have someone who can inspect your tub thoroughly before you begin the remodeling process to ensure that there are no leaks or other problems that might lead to future problems.

You will need to follow the directions for this step carefully, especially if you are using special caulking that needs to be applied. The last step is sealing the seams of the tub with the correct sealant.
Once everything is done, you should give it a couple of days to let everything dry and then you can put your tub back into the tub. Before you do this though, you should make sure that your tub is completely clean of all the old mold and mildew that may be present.
