Left unattended, a leaking shower can cause extensive damage to the timber structure of a home. Mouldy plaster, rotting skirting or a damp smell are signs your shower is leaking. Shower leaks have several causes - The main factor being building movement. If the shower recess has not been sealed correctly to begin with or the sealants and grouts have degraded to the point of failing then water will penetrate beneath the tiles. Water which is trapped underneath tiles will eventually cause them to lose their adhesion with the substrate and lift. Prolonged water contact will also cause waterproofing membrane to crack and fail.
