Leaking Showers


Leaking shower recess

Leaking shower recesses are a problem found within many households in Australia. If left untreated, penetrating moisture can damage adjacent walls, floors and skirting boards, and may become a source of attraction for white ants. The bubbling of paint work and the crumbling of plaster on the reverse side of the shower wall are common symptoms of a leaking shower recess





Why do showers leak?

The tiles and grout within a shower recess are not waterproof materials. At the time of construction, showers should be built with a waterproofing membrane underneath the tiled surface. The most common cause of leaking showers is failure of this waterproofing membrane. Membranes fail for a variety of reasons. Some of those are:

  • natural movement in the building structure
  • incorrect application techniques
  • breakdown of materials over time
  • accidental damage at time of installation
  • failure to install waterproofing membrane
