Our leaking shower repair service at Burns Plumbing is thorough and all-encompassing. We provide:

  • Tile and Grout Replacement: Including tile replacement and re-grouting, addressing damaged or missing grout issues.

  • Comprehensive Repairs and Waterproofing: Specialising in a full range of repairs and waterproofing to ensure a fully functional and leak-proof shower.

Identifying Common Causes of Shower Leaks

At Burns Plumbing, we understand the importance of accurately identifying the causes of shower leaks to provide effective and lasting repair solutions. Common causes include:

  • Degradation of Tile Grout and Sealant: Over time, grout and sealants can break down due to constant exposure to moisture and cleaning agents. This breakdown allows water to seep through, leading to leaks. Discoloured, cracked, or crumbling grout lines are often a clear sign of this issue.
  • Cracked or Damaged Tiles: Physical damage to shower tiles, whether from impact or gradual wear, can create pathways for water leakage. Even small cracks or chips in the shower tile can be problematic, especially if they are in the shower floor or lower sections of the wall.
  • Faulty Shower Floor and Drainage Design: Improperly installed or worn-out shower floors can lead to water pooling and subsequent leakage. Issues with the drainage system, such as a misaligned or blocked drain, can also cause water to accumulate and seep through the surrounding areas.
  • Shower Door Problems: In some cases, leaks may occur due to issues with the shower door or curtain. Poor sealing around the door or a curtain that doesn’t fully contain water can lead to leaks outside the shower area.
  • Plumbing Issues: Leaks can originate from faulty plumbing behind the walls, including loose connections, corroded pipes, or worn-out washers in the showerhead and faucet. These hidden leaks can be particularly challenging to detect without professional help.
  • Worn Shower Seals: Over time, the sealant around the shower tray and between tiles can deteriorate, allowing water to penetrate. This is often seen as dampness or mould growth in adjacent walls or floors.
  • Ineffective Waterproofing: In some cases, the waterproof membrane beneath the tiles may be compromised, either due to poor installation or damage over time. This can allow water to seep into the structure of the building, causing significant damage.

Effective Solutions for Leaking Shower Repair

At Burns Plumbing, we offer a variety of effective solutions to address leaking showers, ensuring each repair is tailored to the specific needs of your bathroom. Our strategies include:

  • Tile Rescue and Replacement: We assess damaged tiles within the shower area and provide tile replacement services. Whether it’s a few tiles or a complete overhaul, we ensure a seamless match with your existing tiles.
  • Shower Floor Repair: For leaks originating from the shower floor, we focus on both the tiles and the underlying layers, ensuring they are intact and properly sealed.
  • Advanced Leak Detection Test: Our skilled team conducts thorough leak detection tests to pinpoint the exact source of the leak, whether it’s from shower heads, the main drain, or hidden within the plumbing.
  • Repair Solution Tailoring: Depending on the extent of the damage, we may recommend a range of solutions, from simple sealant applications to more extensive bathroom and shower renovations.

Shower Seal and Waterproofing Techniques

To effectively combat leakage and protect your shower area, Burns Plumbing employs advanced shower seal and waterproofing techniques:

  • Epoxy Grout Application: We use high-quality epoxy grout to fill grout lines, providing a durable, waterproof barrier that prevents future leaks.
  • Shower Area Sealant: Our team applies top-grade sealants around the shower area, especially focusing on potential weak points like the edges and junctions to ensure a watertight seal.
  • Waterproof Membrane Installation: We install or repair waterproof membranes beneath the shower tiles, an essential step in preventing water from penetrating into the structural elements of your home.

Expert Re-Grouting Services for Shower Tiles

At Burns Plumbing, we specialise in expert re-grouting services, essential for fixing leaks caused by old or damaged grout. Our process includes matching the new grout to your existing colour, effectively eliminating mould-related stains and odours. Our skilled team ensures detailed, quality workmanship, rejuvenating your shower’s appearance and using durable materials for long-term results. Committed to customer satisfaction, we provide top-quality shower repair services across Sydney.

Choosing the Right Grout Guy to Fix Your Leaking Shower

Our Proven Process: From Detection to Repair

The repair process begins with a thorough inspection of your bathroom or shower. Our team assesses the area to identify any signs of a leaking shower. This step is crucial to determine the extent of the issue and the best course of action for repair.

Pinpointing the source of the leak is essential to effectively fix a leaking shower. We use advanced techniques and tools to identify whether the leakage is due to faulty tile grout, sealant issues, or other underlying problems within the shower area.

Once we identify the leakage source, we evaluate the extent of the damage. Our professional team then devises a tailored repair plan to address your specific shower repair needs efficiently. This plan includes details on tile grout replacement, shower waterproofing, and any necessary renovations.

Our skilled technicians carry out the repair work with top-quality materials and attention to detail. Whether it involves grout colour matching, tile replacement, or waterproofing, we ensure that our high quality service extends beyond just the repair process, focusing on enhancing the overall integrity and appearance of your shower.

Post-repair, we conduct a final inspection to ensure the highest quality standards are met. Our commitment to top-quality leaking shower repair services is evident in our meticulous approach to ensuring that every aspect of the repair is perfect, minimising the likelihood of future costly repairs.

DIY Tips: Preventing Shower Leaks

To maintain the integrity of your bathroom and shower, consider these DIY tips to prevent common leaks:

  • Regular Check on Tile and Grout: Inspect the tile grout and sealant within the shower area routinely. Look for any cracks or gaps in the grout lines or where the tiles meet the shower floor.
  • Sealant Refresh: Apply fresh sealant periodically to any areas where it may have worn away, particularly around the shower floor and other critical junctions.
  • Monitor for Early Signs: Be vigilant for signs of a leaking shower, such as damp spots on adjacent walls or floors, or a musty smell in the bathroom.
  • Grout Line Maintenance: If you notice grout deterioration, consider a tile grout replacement to ensure no water seeps through. Keeping the grout lines intact is crucial for a leak-free shower.
  • Waterproofing Check: Periodically verify the effectiveness of shower waterproofing. This is especially important in older bathrooms where waterproofing may have degraded over time.

By following these simple maintenance tips, you can extend the life of your bathroom and shower, avoiding costly repairs and the need for tile rescue or complete tile and grout replacement.
