Shower Repairs

Shower repairs have become a fast growing market due to the negligence and short cuts taken by the construction industry. We receive many phone calls everyday relating to leaking showers and unfortunately some of these residential and commercial dwellings are under 1 year old.

Simply put, leaking showers are due to inadequate preparation and in most circumstances the waterproofing has not been carried out correctly. Many companies out there claim to stop leaking showers without the removal of tiles at a low cost, added with a 15 year warranty. You will think so what’s the problem? Sure there is the method of simply applying a sealant over the existing tiles as opposed to removing the existing tiles and re-waterproofing the substrate (which is the most correct method). However the problem with applying a sealer over the existing tiles would more than likely have the problem occur again due to building movement, the sealer is so brittle that it is likely to crack hence allowing water to seep through again. It is important you read the fine print before using the sealant option.

Commercial Clients

We understand that our commercial clients and strata companies we deal with have a great responsibility to get the job done right and efficiently while keeping costs to a minimum. There lies a temptation for many large companies to adopt a quick fix remedy for the sake of efficiency and cost but the problem is you have to do the job again and again and again. We have spoken to a number of strata and real estate companies in which they informed us that are now realising that quick fixes are almost never the best option and end up costing more money and more time increasing heartache and disturbances to the tenants and most importantly fail over time. In the terms and conditions it clearly states that in the case of any building/structural movement all warranty becomes void and which building is without structural movement?

We have tailored packages for our commercial clients. We can save you a lot of money and heartache. We do it once, we do it right. Speak to one of our professionals today and see the difference we can make to your business.
