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.

What our happy customers say about us:

    Client Eddy & Kate
  • From start to finish this business provides you with professionalism, understanding and great communication. They provide quality workmanship, attention to detail and flexibility. I would not hesitate recommending them to anybody.
    Thank you!

    Client Mathew Kitching
  • I highly recommend Elite Showers. There was no “I’ll be there sometime between 9 and 2,” The tilers organised a specific times, worked around my schedule, and showed up when they said they were going to.  They were both efficient, detailed, professional, friendly, and told me exactly what they would be doing each day (my shower was not a simple one).  Best of all though, they did a fantastic job, and went above and beyond to find me tiles that matched the rest of my bathroom floor.  Now my shower doesn’t leak, and the water flows into the drain instead of pooling in the corner like it used to.  Thank you for saving my shower!!

    Client Sheri Thomson
  • I had a look at the finished job today and it looks great. He has really made an effort to blend things in with the rest of the bathroom.
    He was very helpful with his follow up on questions and queries and sending me images of tile etc
    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.
    You are very prompt and efficient in your replies either by email or phone
    I would have no hesitation in choosing / recommending Elite for any future jobs.

    Kind Regards

    Client Patrick
  • Outstanding Service So pleased with the service provided to our shower. While we had a few other companies inspect, we chose Elite Showers as from the 1st phone call to the job being quoted, Staff was friendly and unlike others, I was asked many questions to ensure we saved money and didn’t get quoted for things that didn’t need doing. We were over the moon with the prompt efficient service. Once job was completed the bathroom was left spotless and shower looks new again. Thank you Elite.
