Stop your shower leaking without removing tiles
Traditional shower repairs can be very expensive and leaking showers are a headache for homeowners and landlords alike. The Shower Dr provides a complete solution in cost-effective shower repairs without removing any tiles.
We use only Mapei products which are known in the construction industry as being the best on the market worldwide, these products mean your shower repairs will be carried out using the best available materials.
The Shower Dr – Standard Shower Repairs Service
Our standard Shower Service involves the removal of the existing wall grout from the walls of the shower down to the floor tile using specialised diamond tipped equipment. The grout is removed to the depth of half a tile which ensures correct bonding and guaranteed mould protection unlike the inferior “skim coat” method widely used by other shower repairer companies which can quickly fail. The shower walls are then regrouted with smooth, flexible, mould-resistant Mapei polymer grout in an appropriate colour.
This shower repairs service also includes the application of Mapei Kerapoxy to the prepared seams and floor joints. This is a 6mm
minimum covering around the internal corners. Your new epoxy will be colour matched to the shower to ensure a seamless appearance. Our epoxy grout has been specifically designed for wet area sealing, it will not crack, mould, deteriorate or let water penetrate. It is easy to clean and maintain, its colour will not fade and it will absorb normal building movement. In addition to this, Mapei Kerapoxy is impervious to chemical cleaning agents.
The shower base is then regrouted up to the internal of the shower screen and any existing sealant to the bottom of the screen is removed. This is resealed with new epoxy. If selected an EnduroShield protection coat is applied to the shower screen. If required a new shower screen, taps and other fittings can optionally be fitted to give your bathroom a complete makeover.
A leaking shower does not have to be an expensive disaster, it can be an opportunity to rejuvenate an ageing bathroom and give it a modernising makeover. And if you’re selling your home it will add value and help it to sell, as a tidy, clean bathroom is high on the want list of buyers. If you’ve just bought, a Shower Dr Shower Service will save you thousands of dollars compared to a full renovation, not that we have anything against renovations, we have our own tilers, carpenters and plumbers and do those too.
Value for money
Our shower service is a fraction of the cost of a bathroom renovation and for most people achieves the same result. It’s usually completed in a day so there is minimal disruption to family life as no tiles are removed in the process. Your shower repairs will be neat and stress free.
