Due to a combination of poor workmanship, cheap untested waterproofing products and the time pressure that is common in the building industry, there is an epidemic of Leaky showers and Bathrooms in South East Queensland. So what’s the next step once you’ve found a leak?
The first step is to isolate the cause of the leak and in our experience, approximately 90% of the time the leak is due to the failure of the waterproofing itself. 10% of the time though, the plumbing itself is leaking inside the wall. For around $100 a plumber will be able to come out and do a pressure test on your pipes which will either confirm or rule out leaking pipes as the cause of the problem.
Once leaking shower repair process has been ruled out it is highly likely that a failed waterproofing membrane at the base of the shower is the cause of the issue. That is where we come in.
