Bath and Shower Leaks

Degradation of the grout can be a result of:-

 

  • Harsh cleaning products
  • Over aggressive cleaning / scrubbing
  • General deterioration over time
  • Structural movement / house settling
  • Vibration of the wall from the opening and closing of doors

 

A severely leaking shower has the potential of causing long term damage to the sub floor, adjoining walls and downstairs ceilings.
