Cracked Shower Base?

Cracked Shower Base?

So you’ve noticed a crack in your shower base… now what?

First of all, it is important to act fast! Not only could a crack in your shower base cause leaking throughout your house that leads structural damage and dangerous mould growth – the more imminent danger to your safety concerns the shower base collapsing under your body weight, potentially causing serious injury to you or your family.

The bad news is that replacing an acrylic or fiberglass shower base can cost anywhere between $3000 - $6000, and potentially put your shower out of action for a week. For many Australian homes, this is simply not a viable option.

The good news – there is a much less expensive and disruptive alternative!
