Tile Showers - Shower Pan Repair
Birmingham Shower Repair Specialists
Is your Shower Leaking?
If so, the shower leak repair information below could be of interest to you! This will address
replacing the shower pan and keeping the existing wall portion.
Most tile shower pans leak from the floor area from these 3 common problems:
1. Improper installation of the shower pan (Most Common, btw)
2. Something has punctured liner material underneath from movement etc.
3. Old age, brittle and crumbling apart (in this case we recommend installing a brand new tile shower from the ground up)
**We highly recommend that you do not continue using a shower that you suspect is leaking. Water can cause significant damage to structural joist and much more that can result in costly repair work that can be prevented with simply not using the shower until the leak problem is fixed properly.
** If structural damage is discovered we will fully replace and repair anything supporting the shower structure above.
What we recommend as a long lasting solution for your tile shower if you choose not to install a complete new shower:
Replacing an entire shower can be costly and not always necessary. If you have a tile shower that you are still happy with from a visual standpoint that seems to be structurally sound, you do have the option to replace just the floor area and bottom area of walls instead of redoing the entire shower. Known as a ' Shower Pan Repair ' in the trade.
Our pictures below will show the many careful steps involved in a properly repaired shower pan replacement from start to finish. These photos were of a porcelain tile shower that wasn't very old at all, 1-2 years, but was installed by someone that didn't know the proper way to get the job done (far to common).
