Whereas the cooking area tends to be more manageable and the problems relatively easy to fix, the shower room can be way more difficult to manage when it begins presenting problems. This could be the time you need to call in a professional in your Thingley 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 reasonable amount of water being splashed around while bathing, it can start to reveal some indications of wear and tear in susceptible places. These are typically in the seams where a shower tray or bathtub joins the wall tiles.

Absence of correct sealing on the edges of wetrooms and shower trays can prove to be a huge challenge as they can be the weak point where the water and mould eventually erode and begin permeating water through and gradually causing damage to plasterboards.

Bath Sealing in Thingley

A typical symptom of this scenario includes a moist smell in the shower room. In some cases, it can manifest on the lower floors first. A stain point will appear on the ceiling boards as a result of taking in water from the shower room leaks above. Apart from such a stain being an eyesore, there is an imminent risk if there are electrical wires near the boards.

Such a leakage would have to be attended to quickly by determining the actual dripping area and correcting at the earliest opportunity to avert any danger from escalating.

These sort of problems are common in shower room locations for 2 primary reasons. One is typically inappropriate setup and insufficient sealing of the edges of tubs and shower trays. The other might be as a result of aging.

Some plumbers might fail to choose the best possible place for installing a shower tray or bathtub which can lead to dripping problems later on. For instance, a shower head placed in an area near the window might lead to the shower sprays falling on the window sill and stagnating there.

This can provide a future issue merely because if the grouting or sealer utilised there is not waterproof and is thought to be ‘porous’, water will leak in and make its way to the underlying plaster and lumber.

Throughout building and repair work, it’s best to make sure that your home builder or repairman utilises premium waterproof grout and silicone in your shower room as water tends to reach unexpected locations in the shower room after a shower.

When it comes to tubs, a common and re-occurring issue for many tubs seems to be caulking or sealing which splits regularly. Some homeowners are surprised. The silicon fractures or tends to pull away from the wall after a few months.
Bead size has a lot to do with it. The fact that the width of the opening between the bathtub and the wall is unequal means that there will be areas that are larger while others are narrower, making it tough to decide the ideal size bead to use.

If you use a bigger bead, then you end up having an overflow in the narrower area without the silicon finding its direction into the gap. When you go with a smaller sized bead, your silicon winds up being ineffective in the bigger areas because it vanishes into the space without filling it.

A lot of homeowners have shared that while choosing on DIY, they take care to prep the area to counter any moisture by completely scrubbing and cleaning with alcohol and letting it dry out for a few days before the caulking. Regardless of this many people are doing a decent job, but they still lament that it stops working much faster than they could have hoped.

One trick is to make sure that you fill the bathtub with water before caulking. This ensures that the tub is at its ideal weight and stretched out to leave an optimal gap. When you do, the silicon has a much better chance of staying in place for longer, assuming you have done the preparation work well.

Shower Tray Problems

Sometimes when dealing with a leaking shower tray, we have had to eliminate the tiles around the border of the tray. More investigation typically reveals moist plywood that is heavily water damaged especially if it is not WPB marine plywood.
In one circumstance, we discovered that the border of the shower tray still had the plastic wrapping that it came in. It is such things that make it evident that the initial installer was just what we describe as a cowboy home builder, indicating they did a lousy job.

Sadly for the house owner, something that should have merely been a relatively uncomplicated repair task, turns out to be a major task, and you would not desire another cowboy home builder botching the repair work.

Contracting a proven, meticulous and skilled repairman is crucial in salvaging an already complicated matter without costing you an arm and a leg.
