Shower membrane repair on the NSW Mid North Coast

..the question that matters most…

How does one know if that stain on the ceiling, a wet carpet or a swollen up door frame is a sign of a leaky shower membrane. Its an exclusion principle. We firstly execute a pressure test to be sure your plumbing and all soldering is ok leading to the spout and tapware.

Secondly looking for signs of ceiling stains in the rooms below the shower, or mouldy smells and make sure the waste pipes doing their job without being clogged up by soap scum and loose hair.

Thirdly, the shower screen and their seal gets inspected as older type rubbers disintegrate or the sealant applied has worn away or is not existing.

Definite indications for a leaky shower are cracked tiles in the cubicles. Water has penetrated the membrane and the floor or particle board installed pre 2010 has swollen up or disintegrated. (yellow tongue board or non marine grade plywood) .Many types and agents of membrane have been used in the past , worst are acrylic based membranes who eventually complete dissolve under the ever wearing hydraulic pressure and movement of the cement bedding installed under the tiles of your shower floor.

In some cases the fibrous wall sheeting is mounted to deep onto the flooring substrate and can soak up water into the adjecent studs to rot out framework and the cladding itself. Signs for that are loose or drummy sounding tiles, cracks in grout and leakage outside the shower screen and a wet door frame as slow crawling water seeps into gaps behind the tiles affecting all areas supposedly dry.

No problem for ADVANCE SHOWER REPAIR to fix all the problems. Studwork repair, resheeting and the complete replacement of membrane for a polyurethane 2 coat application.
