    Hi,

    Too busy atm to do it myself but requested to have the managing agent to send a handy man to do the silicon gun/sealant job for the kitchen and bathroom.

    What would a reasonable cost for the job? The property is located in NSW.

    Cheers

    Hard to tell without knowing how much detail is involved.
    I'd guess around $200

    How long is a piece of string?

    $10/tube of silicone then 4+ hours to remove old silicone and put in new then clean up.

    Can a handyman even complete the job?

    Perhaps a tiler who does this day in day out be a more appropriate trade.

    Id hate to see a 'handyman' complete the job and the crappy silicone job fail in 2 months.
