What are the reasons for a leaky shower?
There are many reasons for leaking showers:
• Aging buildings
• Humidity and heat
• Damaged shower heads
• Wearing off of silicone sealants
• Damage to the waterproof membrane either due to imperfect installation, wear and tear or cracks in the membrane
• Porous and cracked grout
• Deterioration of grouting
• Damaged waterproofing
• Leaking pipes behind the wall
• Structural movement of building
Although leaking showers are commonly blamed on faulty shower heads, it could be a combination of more than two factors listed above. Identifying the correct source of the leaking shower is best left to experts trained in handling leaking shower repairs.

What are the consequences of a leaky shower?

The common reason for building complaints relate to leaking showers Perth residents face. Leaking showers can cause extensive damage to the bathroom and the building leading to expensive repairs if not addressed promptly. The build-up of moisture in the long-term can lead to mould growth. Mould can appear as discoloured or black silicone and can extend onto the painted walls of the bathroom. Young children and adults who are sensitive to mould can develop serious symptoms of allergy.
A leaking shower that is left untreated can damage the tiles in the shower that could eventually fall off. Suddenly crashing tiles can be dangerous if it falls on the individual using the shower.
Leaks can spread to adjacent apartments in the building leading to costly litigation and damage claims. Water build-up over time damages the entire structure of the building and cause damage to the wooden enclosures, beams, floorboards and bearers that have not been waterproofed.
Quick fixes and temporary measures to rectify the leaking shower will turn out to be more expensive in the long run. Inexperienced people may not be able to identify the source of the problem or the real extent of the damage.
Repairs might involve tiling, waterproofing and regrouting to efficiently and permanently fix the leaking shower problems.

Our professionals will inspect the bathroom thoroughly to understand the source of the problem, estimate the extent of the water damage and the kind of repairs that will be required. Depending on the nature of repairs our experts recommend, we can then carry out the regrouting, waterproofing or shower repairs.
Regrouting:Leaking shower can make grouting in the tiles look old, cracked and ugly. The process of regrouting involves removing old grout and installation of new grout. Appropriate regrouting removes the need to replace the entire flooring when there are leaking showers the Perth residents are concerned about.
At GIB Tiling, we make use of the latest advanced technology and tools to replace the old and worn out grout. With our sophisticated equipment, we will ensure no tiles are removed or replaced and also that there is no damage to any of the tiles. After removing the old grout and vacuuming to remove any remnants, we fill it with epoxy grout or new grout and seal it.
After the new grout sets in, we remove any excess grout and clean up the tiles so your bathroom looks as good as new. The long lasting durable grout ensures leaking showers the Perth residents are concerned about are a thing of the past.
Waterproofing and tiling: Efficient waterproofing in damp areas of the bathroom is crucial. Leaking showers that are not treated let water leak into the floor and walls which can cause moulds and the rotting of structures. A lack of or poor waterproofing can itself be the reason for leaking shower the Perth homes face.
It is best to leave waterproofing in showers to licensed experts, according to Australian standards. At GIB Tiling, since we can provide a written warranty and a guarantee of our professional work, there is no compromise on the high-quality standards of our waterproofing. To carry out waterproofing, we will first estimate the extent of the damage with our team of experts who will advise you on the kind of repairs required. Using silicone, our trained experts will seal the corners and edges of the shower area. We then apply waterproofing membrane on walls and floor using the most modern and advanced equipment.
After the waterproofing membrane is cured, tiles can be selected and replaced according to your design needs. We can help you select and source the best possible materials and designs for your tiling needs.
