Leaking Shower Repairs Sydney provide professional bathroom waterproofing services throughout metropolitan Sydney. Over the years our team have helped many residential and commercial customers with their waterproofing needs.
What is involved in Bathroom Waterproofing?
The waterproofing process involves applying a synthetic rubbery or silicone based coating on walls and floors that are frequently exposed to moisture, humidity and direct wetting. Your bathroom on a day to day basis experiences these such elements. Which is why bathrooms by Australian Building Regulations must be completed and certified by a licensed waterproofer.
If you are starting a new home renovation or bathroom re-modelling project, it is vial that the shower, bathtub and/or spa area gets at least 2-3 coats of waterproofing. Showers especially experience frequent rush of water, making it highly likely for water to find its way through the grout and sealant cracks at some point in its lifetime. If your bathroom is thoroughly waterproofed then the chances of water leaking and damaging building structures are significantly reduced.
Post Waterproofing Errors
If you already have a relatively new bathroom and your shower is showing signs of a major leak, then it is likely it hasn’t been waterproofed properly initially or there has been a piercing or rupture in the membrane. This is mostly caused by negligence in applying silicone when drilling though tiles to install bathroom fixtures. This may consist of failing to seal drill holes when installing a shower screen, fixed shower racks, soap holders, shower heads, bathroom handicap railings and so forth.
At Leaking Shower Repairs Sydney, we have seen many bathroom renovation errors that can jeopardise a fully certified waterproofing job. Which is why we highly recommend that you contact us who are waterproofing contractors that understand the correct steps in waterproofing a bathroom successfully.
How do you know if you need your Bathroom Waterproofed?
There are many ways your bathroom may show signs of inadequate or no waterproofing. You will notice water leaking from around the base of the door jams. If your leaking bathroom is on the top level of a double story home, you will notice damp patches on the ceilings on the level beneath.
Consequences of little or no Waterproofing
Properly planning your bathroom waterproofing project is also essential to prevent massive water damages in your home. Water can do huge damage in a building especially when it goes undetected for long periods of time. If the property has a wood structure such as joists, bearers, posts, bearers, and beams they can eventually warp and rot. It can make electric wiring faulty. Water drippings can cause fire or electrocution. It can damage plumbing and cause corrosion.
