Repairing Leaking Showers is our specialty!
There are several misconceptions going around regarding how to fix leaking showers. That being said, often we come across a shower that is so badly damaged it should be re-built. But this is not the rule.
Most frequently, we can repair a leaking shower, without replacing the tiles that is ready to use again within 24 hours!
Why would you have to do that?
Tiles are not porous. You might have cracked or broken one, but water won’t be getting through the tile!
On the contrary, unsealed grout is porous. It succumbs, moves and cracks to rigorous cleaning! Sometimes the actual grout blend was quite sandy and hence the grout starts to crumble. There are many reasons that the grout between your tiles may fail. Missing or cracked grout between your tiles and across the waste hole in your shower is a common reason that the shower leaks.
Replacing the grout between your tiles is pretty quick. It is less costly and there is a lot less down time also!
This final point is vital as restoring original showers, specifically in period homes, not only saves time and cost, it can also add value to your home. Old tiles can be very lovely, specifically when they are in their new grout. Restoring what there is already makes sense and maintains integrity in older houses that have period features, the minute details that property owners are looking for!
