Mouldy or swollen skirting boards, dampness or mould build up
Paint peeling on bathroom walls or downstairs ceiling
Damp musty smell, wet carpet or wallpaper
Stained timbers under the house or sub floor
Cracked or loose tiles in the shower
Missing & cracked grout in the shower recess
These are the signs that your shower could be leaking and require repair.
The most common causes are:
Building movement (especially in the second floor of a house)
Inadequate waterproofing (product application not done properly)
Tiles laid too soon (membrane can’t dry before tiles are laid)
No fall to the waste (constant risk of water damage)
Screens not sealed correctly (water can easily escape the cubicle)
