Shower Repairs : What You Need To Know

Bathrooms are some of the most used wet areas in your home. Therefore, it’s hardly surprising that these spaces are also among the most problematic ones when it comes to leaks. This building defect can result in major damage to adjacent areas in your home and you may end up spending significant amounts to fix them. The best way to avoid these issues is to opt for high-quality waterproofing. 

However, if you do find leakages and other defects in your existing shower, not all is lost. Skilled and experienced professionals can repair your shower and other wet areas of the bathroom. They can track down the leaks and assess the level of damage before recommending the best, long-term solution that will help prevent any further leakages and damage. 

Signs That You Have a Leaking Shower

One of the commonest defects around bathroom is a failure of the waterproofing membrane inside or around the shower spaces. Some common signs of leaks in this recess include:

  • A breakdown of the wall surfaces (wallpaper, paint, or plaster inside the bathroom or even on any adjacent walls)
  • Loose or uneven tiles
  • Damage to caulk or grout
  • Persistent mildew or mould
  • Ceiling stains 

If you have noticed any of these signs of bathroom or shower leaks, you must address them immediately. Any type of failure in your bathroom waterproofing could be an indication of more complex and costly problems.

Shower Waterproofing in Melbourne 

Repairing leaking showers can be complicated but it’s crucial because these problems don’t just vanish. They will worsen progressively, giving rise to safety concerns due to structural defects around the home. Depending on how severe the leak is, they can cause a lot of damage. If there is extensive leakage and severe damage, removing the shower recess tiles may be necessary. 

The waterproof membrane system would then have to be either repaired or replaced before retiling the area. This can be quite a time-consuming and costly project because each stage of the repairs can take several days. Sometimes, regrouting and shower sealing the tiles around the leak can solve the problem, though this is just a temporary fix. 

Waterproofing Cost

Always hire professionals that cover their work with guarantees, as they will do the job right the first time around. Very importantly, they will assess the issue thoroughly and determine the best plan of action. The waterproofing cost would depend entirely on the level of damage or deterioration in the membrane. 

Since there could be multiple approaches to bathroom waterproofing work, this step is crucial in ensuring an appropriate and affordable solution. Experienced professionals will rarely recommend a temporary fix as that can mean additional costs and repeated hassles of repairs in that same area. 

They will use time-tested products in their work so you have a long-lasting solution rather than a Band-Aid style fix that is only temporary. Like most problems in a home, always address shower-waterproofing issues as soon as you notice them. Timely intervention can go a long way in helping you avoid escalation of the problem.
