Why Does My Shower Leak

Why Does My Shower Leak?

Why Does My Shower Leak?

In most cases your house will be the biggest investment you will make in your lifetime. The walls and floors of your dwelling are known to settle for many years after it is built. The constant use of your shower also causes unnoticeable vibration of the floor and walls. This vibration, along with the settlement of the entire dwelling, may cause small hairline cracks in various locations. One of the most common areas to crack are the corners and perimiter shower area.

This is because the tiles and the grout (in between) are rigid and inflexible. Any movement of the walls from the floor will cause the grout to crack and fall out. These cracks can also cause the waterproofing membrane to become brittle after water seeps through it. continuously exposed to water. Water leaks can cause hazardous mould and bacteria to build up, timber fixtures to swell, structural damage to occur and even attract destructive pests such as termites.

Why Does My Shower Leak

What are some signs of a leaking shower?

  Shower walls and grout have a build up of mould.
  Tiles or grout in or around shower are discoloured.
  Rotting timber, wet carpet or flooring.
  Musty Smell.
  Paint peeling or flaking off walls or ceiling below shower.
  Cracks in the walls.
  Grout is falling out or missing.
  Loose tiles, tiles have started coming off the walls.

If you have noticed any of these signs, it is highly likely you are dealing with a leaking shower. If the leak is caused through cracked or missing tiles, missing or cracked grout, sealants missing or peeling etc, Elite Shower Repairs is the best solution to recitify the leak. In most cases we don’t even need to remove tiles.

If the shower leak is caused by a leaking or dripping tap, a leaking pipe behind the wall, it will be a job for the plumber. If the leak is getting worse over as period of time, chances are there is a plumbing problem with the pipework. If water leak is only visible when you are using the shower or appears shortly after using it, then you are more likely dealing with a leaking shower.

    Client Cecilienne-Mae Rooty Hill
  • Hi Barry,

    Thanks for doing such an amazing job on our shower. You can imagine my dismay when I realised my shower was leaking so close to Christmas. Barry and his team were so helpful and were able to accommodate us urgently prior to Christmas. They were completely professional, even removing their shoes when walking through the house. They were quick, efficient and the difference in my showers was immense. We really appreciated the pride that they took in completing the job properly and neatly. We would have no hesitation in recommending them or using them again ourselves. Their customer service was exemplary, their workmanship spectacular and were always prompt and professional.

    Thanks so much to the team at Elite Shower Repairs.

    I have to say I have been very impressed with the service you guys provide…your speedy attention to detail, organisation and of course the job itself.
