Whereas the cooking area tends to be more workable and the problems relatively easy to fix, the shower room can be far more difficult to handle when it begins causing problems. This could be the time you need to call in a professional in your Chippenham Wiltshire South West area.

We serve these local areas too:

Considering that the shower room tends to be an extremely wet area due to a fair amount of water being splashed while bathing, it can start to reveal some indications of wear and tear in vulnerable places. These are normally in the seams where a shower tray or bath tub joins the wall tiles.

Lack of appropriate sealing on the edges of bathrooms and shower trays can prove to be a huge difficulty as they can be the weak point where the water and mould eventually deteriorate and begin leaking water through and gradually causing damage to plasterboards.

Bath Sealing in Chippenham

A typical sign of this circumstance consists of a moist smell in the shower room. Often, it can manifest on the lower floors first. A stain point will show up on the ceiling boards as a result of taking in water from the shower room leakages above. Apart from such a stain being an eyesore, there is an impending danger if there are electric wires near the boards.

Such a leakage would need to be addressed rapidly by determining the real leaking area and rectifying at the earliest opportunity to prevent any risk from escalating.

These sort of problems normal in shower room locations for two main factors. One is normally improper installation and inadequate sealing of the edges of bathtubs and shower trays. The other may be as a result of aging.

Some plumbers may fail to select the best possible location for installing a shower tray or bath tub which can result in leaking problems later on. For instance, a shower head placed in an area near the window may result in the shower sprays falling on the window sill and standing there.

This can present a future issue simply due to the fact that if the grouting or sealer used there is not waterproof and is considered ‘permeable’, water will permeate in and make its way to the underlying plaster and timber.

Throughout building and repair, it’s the best idea to ensure that your home builder or repairman utilises high-quality waterproof grout and silicone in your shower room as water tends to reach unanticipated places in the shower room during a shower.

When it concerns bathtubs, a common and recurrent issue for many bathtubs appears to be caulking or sealing which cracks regularly. Some house owners are amazed. The silicon cracks or tends to pull away from the wall after a couple of months.
Bead size has a lot to do with it. That the width of the opening in between the bath tub and the wall is irregular means there will be sections that are broader while others are narrower, making it difficult to decide the best size bead to utilise.

If you utilise a larger bead, then you wind up having an overflow in the narrower area without the silicon finding its way into the gap. When you choose a smaller sized bead, your silicon winds up being inadequate in the larger spaces because it vanishes into the area without filling it.

The majority of house owners have shared that while deciding on DIY, they use utmost care to prep the area to counter any moisture by thoroughly scouring and cleaning up with alcohol and letting it dry out for a couple of days prior to the caulking. Despite this many people are doing a good job, but they still lament that it stops working much earlier than they could have hoped.

One trick is to make sure that you fill the bath tub with water prior to caulking. This guarantees that the tub is at its ideal weight and extended to leave an optimal gap. When you do, the silicon has a better chance of remaining in its place for longer, presuming you have done the preparation work well.

Shower Tray Problems

In some cases when handling a dripping shower tray, we have needed to remove the tiles around the boundary of the tray. Further investigation normally reveals moist plywood that is greatly water damaged especially if it is not WPB marine plywood.
In one circumstance, we noticed that the boundary of the shower tray still had the plastic covering that it came in. It is such things that make it apparent that the preliminary installer was just what we describe as a cowboy home builder, suggesting they did a poor fitting.

Unfortunately for the property owner, something that should have simply been a relatively uncomplicated repair task, ends up being a big job, and you wouldn’t want another cowboy home builder botching the repair.
