There are many reasons a shower or balcony may be leaking. A common problem is slight building movement. This is especially problematic in second story or larger apartment complexes. Any movement will cause separation between the wall and floor tiles allowing water to leak under the base. Another major reason for a leaking shower can be caused by the incorrect installation of shower screens. Most screens are manufactured by wardrobe companies with very little understanding of waterproofing. A shower screen must have every junction and chanel sealed internally.
A Water Leak King service will assess and repair all possible causes of leaks
A typical service to waterproof your shower will include:
Pressure test the breach pipe.
Seal behind taps and replace washers & o’rings.
Inspect and seal the floor waste (drain).
Apply a final tile and grout sealant to the entire area
A standard Shower Base Seal is only $440 and guaranteed!
Continued leaking will not only damage walls, floorboards and carpets but will eventually swell structural timbers and deteriorate concrete causing major damage and expense. A Water Leak King repair will prevent this at a fraction of the cost.
