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.
Repair Grout Joints (full service only) and replace with anti-fungal grout.
Inspect and seal the floor waste (drain).
Score the floor junctions using a die grinder with our diamond tip drill bits then apply our epoxy seal to the base and junctions.
Replace internal silicone on the shower screen and wall junctions.
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.
It’s always best to act sooner rather than later
