Shower Base Repair Brisbane

Shower Base Rebuild Brisbane

Sometimes showers go past the point of no return and the only option is to rebuild them from the ground up, including installing a brand new waterproofing system. A shower base rebuild is needed in showers that have been leaking for some time, causing the wooden framing and sheeting behind your tiles to rot and the waterproofing system to fail.

If your shower wall tiles and grout, taps and screen are in good condition, then a cheap alternative to rebuilding your entire shower is a shower base repair through a rebuild. This includes stripping the entire shower floor, the bottom row of wall tiles and removing and replacing any damaged framing. We then resheet and reconstruct the shower from the ground up, including new drain, puddle flange, waterproofing, tiles, grouts and silicones. The entire base is grouted in epoxy grout ensuring your new shower base will last a minimum 7 years.

“These guys are a force to be reckoned with. I recently had both bathrooms resealed and nothing was too much trouble for them. The bathrooms look heaps better and they went above and beyond what was expected. I would recommend them to anybody who needs resealing on their showers.” 15/12/2018
