There are a few reasons that your shower leaks, including poor tiling design, structural movement, the breakdown of silicone joints or shower seals, or a lack of plumbing maintenance, but the biggest culprit that we have come across in our many years of repairing showers is the erosion of the grout between your tiles. When tile regrouting has not been carried out routinely as part of your Joondalup home’s maintenance, it is inevitable that the grout between the tiles in your shower recess will be broken down by the water from your shower. Just how long that erosion will take depends on a number of factors such as the skill and attention to detail of the tradesman who carried out the original grouting work, the amount of use your shower has, and how well your grouting has been previously maintained over time.
Shower Solutions’ team have many years of experience in the industry and are experts in solving leaking shower problems. We don’t guess at what the problem might be, but rather use equipment such as the latest, state of the art thermal imaging cameras to inspect your shower area and opposing walls. The use of a thermal imaging camera is critical in identifying the cause of the water ingress because those leaks are often hidden from the naked eye and will only be evident using our sophisticated equipment.
