Leaking Showers! – Why is my Shower Leaking?

There are a number of different causes of leaking showers. Leaking showers are very common and if left untreated can lead to extensive long term water damage.
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. Drain connections from pipes not being connected properly. This can lead to water leaking through to the area beneath the drain.

 

 

Here are a few warning signs of Leaking Showers.

 

  • Peeling paint to the ceiling, bathroom or wall.
  • Dampness smell – wet carpet.
  • Mould build up in cupboards, ceilings and walls.
  • Staining/swelling of timber or architraves.
  • Cracked tiles in the shower area.
  • Missing grout to the walls or floor.
  • Missing silicone to shower screen.
  • Water puddles outside of shower area after usage.

 

If you see any of these warning signs, then please do not hesitate to call or fill out the contact form and prevent any further damage.

    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.

    Client Phil & Belinda The Ponds
  • old bathroom looking totally refreshed with new grout and sealer around the bath, the leaks have stopped down stairs. We noted your punctuality and cleanliness and thank you for that. Well done and we will recommend you.
    Regards,

    Client Luke Quoyle Gordon
  • My Bathroom and Balcony were just recently sealed. Not only were the jobs done and completed to perfection. Both areas were left clean and tidy. Barry respected my home. (taking shoes off on carpet) Barry also did extra bits like unblocking a pipe that he noticed was blocked to assist with water retention.
    It’s not often you find good trustworthy tradesman – who take pride in their work and go the extra mile. I was also able to leave him in my home while I took my kids to Sport. I would highly recommend Elite Shower Repairs.
