Leaking Bathtubs and Shower Trays? We Will Fix It

Problem wet areas in your home are a typical event and most of the time, they tend to be high use areas such as the kitchen area sink and the restroom.

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

We serve these local areas too:

Considering that the bathroom has the tendency to be an extremely wet area due to a fair quantity of water being splashed around while showering, it can start to show some signs of wear and tear in susceptible places. These are normally in the seams where a shower tray or bathtub meets the wall tiles.

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

Bath Sealing in Widcombe

A typical symptom of this situation consists of a moist odour in the bathroom. In some cases, 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 leakage would need to be addressed rapidly by determining the actual dripping area and correcting at the earliest opportunity to avert any threat from intensifying.

These sort of problems are common in bathroom areas for two main reasons. One is normally inappropriate installation and inadequate sealing of the edges of bath tubs and shower trays. The other may be as a result of ageing.

Some plumbers may fail to 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 may lead to the shower sprays falling on the window sill and standing there.

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

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

When it concerns bath tubs, a typical and re-occurring problem for most bath tubs appears to be caulking or sealing which cracks repeatedly. Some property owners are surprised. The silicon cracks or has the tendency 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 between the bathtub and the wall is irregular means that there will be areas that are broader 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 go with a smaller bead, your silicon winds up being inadequate in the larger spaces since it vanishes into the area without filling it.

The majority of property owners have shared that while choosing on DIY, they are careful 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 before the caulking. In spite of this most people are doing a good job, but they still lament that it stops working way sooner than they would have hoped.

One technique is to make sure that you fill the bathtub with water before caulking. This makes sure that the tub is at its optimal weight and extended 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 handling a leaking shower tray, we have needed to eliminate the tiles around the border of the tray. Further examination normally exposes moist plywood that is heavily water damaged particularly if it is not WPB marine plywood.
In one circumstance, we noticed 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.

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

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