Bendigo leaking shower repairs
At Bendigo Bathrooms we can repair your shower floor and walls.
If you suspect you have a water leakage problem how do you know where the problem is? The first port of call is a plumber to see if the plumbing fittings are leaking. Once the plumber gives the plumbing fittings the all clear we are happy to come and inspect the shower and provide a quotation for shower repairs.
Tell-tale signs of a leaking shower are water under the house in the case of a timber floor, or dampness in the hallway or bedroom backing onto the shower. Tiles falling off the wall of a shower indicate it is time to replace the shower area.
It is imperative to undertake shower repairs as soon as the problem is discovered to lessen the chance of further damage or expensive structural damage. Showers are the second-most used item in a house – only the kitchen sink is used more – and are made of durable materials. Concrete shower bases, polymarble shower bases and ceramic tiles are all very durable materials, however over time they succumb to the water use day after day.
If your shower needs to be repaired we often suggest it might be time to give the bathroom a makeover. Quite often it is difficult to match tiles to existing ones, and it can be more cost-effective to complete a bathroom renovation for your Bendigo home, at the same time as the repairs.
If shower repairs are undertaken the process is as followed:
- removing shower screen, tapware, tiles and shower base.
- repairing structure if needed and preparing for new materials.
- fixing new ceramic underlay.
- waterproofing wet area.
- installing new shower base or in-situ base.
- fixing new wall tiles.
- refitting existing shower screen and tapware.
All our workmanship is covered by a seven-year guarantee. The process for leaking shower repairs is inconvenient and can take up to a week, but at the end you can rest assured you will have a brand-new waterproof shower recess.
