Whereas the cooking area tends to be more workable and the problems relatively easy to fix, the bathroom can be far harder to manage when it begins presenting problems. This could be the time you need to call in a professional in your Widcombe Somerset South West area.

Considering that the bathroom tends to be an extremely wet area due to a fair quantity of water being splashed around while bathing, it can start to reveal some indications of wear and tear in susceptible places. These are normally in the seams where a shower tray or bathtub adjoins the wall tiles.

Lack of appropriate sealing on the edges of bathrooms and shower trays can prove to be a big difficulty as they can be the weak spot where the water and mould eventually wear down and start leaking water through and slowly causing damage to plasterboards.

Bath Sealing in Widcombe

A common symptom of this situation includes a moist smell in the bathroom. Often, it can show up on the lower levels first. A stain mark will appear on the ceiling panels as a result of taking in water from the bathroom leakages above. Apart from such a stain being an eyesore, there is an impending threat if there are electrical wires close to the boards.

Such a leak would need to be addressed rapidly by recognising the actual dripping area and correcting at the earliest opportunity to avert any threat from intensifying.

These sort of problems normal in bathroom areas for 2 main factors. One is normally improper installation and inadequate sealing of the edges of tubs and shower trays. The other might be as a result of ageing.

Some plumbers might cannot select the best possible place for installing a shower tray or bathtub which can result in dripping problems later on. For instance, a shower head put in an area close to the window might result in the shower sprays falling on the window sill and stagnating there.

This can present a future problem merely due to the fact that if the grouting or sealer utilised there is not waterproof and is thought to be ‘porous’, water will seep in and make its way down to the underlying plaster and timber.

Throughout construction and repair, it’s best to ensure that your builder or service technician uses premium waterproof grout and silicone in your bathroom as water tends to reach unforeseen locations in the bathroom after a shower.

When it pertains to tubs, a common and re-occurring problem for most tubs appears to be caulking or sealing which splits repeatedly. Some property owners are amazed. The silicon cracks or tends to retreat from the wall after a number of months.
Bead size has a lot to do with it. That the width of the opening in between the bathtub and the wall is unequal means that there will be areas that are wider while others are narrower, making it tough to find the ideal size bead to utilise.

If you utilise a bigger bead, then you wind up having an overflow in the narrower section without the silicon discovering its way into the space. When you opt for a smaller bead, your silicon winds up being inadequate in the larger spaces since it vanishes into the space without filling it.

Most property owners have shared that while opting on DIY, they use utmost care to prep the area to counter any moisture by completely scouring and cleaning up with alcohol and letting it dry for a number of days prior to the caulking. In spite of this most people are doing a decent job, but they still lament that it stops working much sooner than they would have hoped.

One technique is to make sure that you fill the bathtub with water prior to caulking. This makes sure that the tub is at its optimal weight and stretched out to leave an optimal space. When you do, the silicon has a much better possibility of remaining in its place for longer, assuming you have done the preparation work well.

Shower Tray Problems

In some cases when dealing with a leaking shower tray, we have needed to eliminate the tiles around the border of the tray. Further investigation normally exposes moist plywood that is greatly water damaged particularly if it is not WPB marine plywood.
In one instance, we saw that the border of the shower tray still had the plastic wrapping that it came in. It is such things that make it apparent that the initial installer was what we refer to as a cowboy builder, indicating they did a poor job.

Unfortunately for the property owner, what ought to have merely been a relatively straightforward repairing task, turns out to be a big job, and you would not desire another cowboy builder mishandling the repair.

Contracting a highly regarded, careful and skilled service technician is crucial in salvaging a now complicated matter without costing you an arm and a leg.
