Leaking Shower Repairs and Waterproofing Sydney
The waterproof membrane beneath the tiles can fail. In case it fails, water will penetrate the surrounding areas freely and cause major damages when left unattended.
The membranes that seal the shower are also prone to failure. Poor installation, chemical breakdown, and building movement can make them fail.
Leakage in the shower seal is mostly caused by building movement, especially when the building is settling into the foundation and when it’s moving naturally between cold and hot weather.
The movement results in weakening and cracking of the tile junctions, shower seal, and grout within the bath or shower. As a result, water can easily penetrate through the tiles. In most cases, excessive movement of a building is not covered by warranty.

- The shower is missing some grout
