Shower Moisture – The Early Warning Signs

The Pros and Cons of DIY Shower Repairs

Most of us like to think that we’re pretty handy when it comes to DIY around the house. We’ll tackle almost any household repair after getting tips from a quick Google search and a couple of YouTube videos. For most DIY tasks this is a reasonable strategy but there are some household repairs and maintenance jobs that are best left to the experts.

Leaking Shower Repairs – A Cautionary Tale

Leaking Shower Repairs – A Cautionary Tale

About a year ago we were asked to provide a property manager with a quote to repair a leaking shower. The shower was in a luxury townhouse in a popular Brisbane inner city suburb.

Help! My shower is leaking and I’m not sure why…

It’s an unfortunate fact but leaking shower recesses are among the most common building defects in Australia. This has never been unusual in units, apartments and houses more than 15 or 20 years old, but more and more we are finding leaking showers in homes that are less than 10 years old. This really shouldn’t be the case with modern materials, sealants and waterproofing practices.
