Leaking Shower Base Repair

Leaking Shower Base Repair

Even the best installed shower base may start to leak and require repair. Common reasons include:

#1 Cracking of the waterproofing underneath the shower base; and 

#2 Cracking or weakening of the grout in the shower base area.

Another common reason is the separation of the shower base from the stud walls, allowing water to get in between the shower base and the wall. This separation occurs due to ordinary wear and tear - opening and closing of doors, expansion and contraction of the walls due to temperature changes and the inevitable damp and moist atmosphere in every shower-room or bathroom.

Tell-tale Sign You Have a Shower Base Leak

Sometimes the problem with a shower base will announce itself in a big and obvious leak. Commonly, however, a problem with a shower base is less obvious. There are some common symptoms that can suggest you may need shower base repairs:

  1. #1 Wet carpet near the shower base;
  2. #2 Discoloured silicone sealant around the shower base;
  3. #3 Warped or jamming bathroom door;
  4. #4 Damp or water-stains on the ceiling below the shower;
  5. #5 Visible gaps between the shower base and the wall;
  6. #6 Cracking paint; and
  7. #7 Loose tiles or grout in the shower area.
