Considering that the bathroom tends to be an extremely damp location due to a reasonable quantity of water being splashed while showering, it can start to reveal some signs of wear and tear in vulnerable places. These are typically in the seams where a shower tray or tub adjoins the wall tiles.
Lack of proper sealing on the edges of wetrooms and shower trays can present a substantial difficulty as they can be the weak spot where the water and mould eventually erode and start permeating water through and slowly damaging plasterboards.
Bath Sealing in Wexham Court
A common sign of this situation consists of a wet odour in the bathroom. In some cases, it can show up on the lower floors first. A stain point will show up on the ceiling panels as a result of taking in water from the bathroom leaks above. Apart from such a stain being an eyesore, there is an impending danger if there are electric wires near to the boards.
Such a leakage would have to be attended to rapidly by identifying the real dripping location and correcting at the earliest opportunity to prevent any threat from escalating.
These sort of problems normal in bathroom locations for two primary factors. One is typically inappropriate setup and insufficient sealing of the edges of bath tubs and shower trays. The other may be as a result of ageing.
Some plumbing technicians may fail to choose the optimum possible location for installing a shower tray or tub which can cause dripping problems later. For instance, a shower head positioned in an area near to the window may lead to the shower sprays falling on the window sill and stagnating there.
This can provide a future problem merely because if the grouting or sealer utilised there is not waterproof and is thought to be ‘permeable’, water will leak in and make its way down to the underlying plaster and timber.
During building and repair work, it’s the best idea to make sure that your home builder or technician uses premium waterproof grout and silicone in your bathroom as water tends to reach unexpected locations in the bathroom after a shower.
Wexham Court Shower Sealing
When it concerns bath tubs, a typical and re-occurring problem for the majority of bath tubs appears to be caulking or sealing which splits regularly. Some house owners are shocked. The silicon fractures or tends to pull away from the wall after a couple of months.
Bead size has a lot to do with it. The fact that the width of the opening in between the tub and the wall is unequal means that there will be sections that are larger while others are narrower, making it hard to find the best size bead to utilise.
If you utilise a larger bead, then you wind up having an overflow in the narrower section without the silicon finding its way into the space. When you opt for a smaller sized bead, your silicon winds up being inefficient in the larger areas because it disappears into the space without filling it.
The majority of house owners have shared that while opting on DIY, they take care to prep the location to counter any moisture by thoroughly scouring and cleaning up with alcohol and letting it dry for a couple of days before the caulking. Despite this the majority of people are doing a decent job of it, but they still lament that it stops working much quicker than they would have desired.
One technique is to make sure that you fill the tub with water before caulking. This makes sure that the tub is at its optimum weight and stretched out to leave an optimum space. When you do, the silicon has a much better chance of remaining in place for longer, presuming you have done the preparation work well.
Shower Tray Problems
In many cases when handling a leaky shower tray, we have had to get rid of the tiles around the perimeter of the tray. Further investigation typically reveals damp plywood that is greatly water damaged especially if it is not WPB marine plywood.
In one instance, we saw that the perimeter of the shower tray still had the plastic wrapping that it came in. It is such things that make it obvious that the preliminary installer was just what we refer to as a cowboy home builder, suggesting they did a lousy job.
Regrettably for the house owner, what ought to have merely been a fairly uncomplicated repair task, ends up being a project, and you wouldn’t desire another cowboy home builder mishandling the repair work.
Contracting a proven, careful and skilled technician is vital in restoring a now complicated matter without costing you an arm and a leg.
