Project: Leaking shower repair at Collaroy on the Northern Beaches

Before. The extent of the damage to the shower floor is clearly evident in the photo above.

Shower repairs and bathroom waterproofing Northern Beaches.

The owner of this Collaroy home only became aware that their shower was leaking when, under the house, they noticed water damage on the floor timbers below the bathroom.

We estimate that water had been leaking from the shower, through the floor, for many months.  The damage to the floor joists, thankfully, wasn’t bad enough that the timbers needed to be replaced.  We have seen this and it’s very costly.  Had the owner not noticed the leak for a few more months then, potentially, the timbers would have started rotting beyond repair.

Once onsite, our bathroom waterproofer first had to remove the existing shower floor tiles and then the extensively damaged shower floor. The extent of the damage is evident in the photo above where large holes can be clearly seen.

After. Two coats of polyurethane waterproofing are applied to provide an impenetrable barrier, even if the tile grout fails in the future.

Next, he installed a new sand and cement screed to the shower floor. Once dry he then applied two coats of polyurethane waterproofing which provides an impenetrable barrier, even if the tile grout fails in the future.

Finally, the shower floor was retiled with our Drip Dry Seal added to the perimeter of the shower to provide extra waterproof protection.
