Shower Base and Full Shower Rebuilds By The Shower Dr

SOMETIMES A SHOWER simply can’t be repaired and the only cost effective and permanent solution is a shower rebuild or a shower base rebuild. The Shower Dr can rebuild your shower while minimising any inconvenience and downtime.

When A Shower Needs Rebuilding

The Shower Dr can repair most leaking showers without removing tiles by resealing the recess with our state of the art shower sealing system. However, old age comes to all of us, even shower and sometimes a shower can’t be saved or repaired. Some of the signs of this can be:

In these cases we offer a full repair service including shower base rebuilds and full shower rebuilds.

A Shower Dr Shower Base Rebuild

In cases where the shower base is damaged beyond repair but the shower recess walls and tiles are still in good condition, a base rebuild may be the solution and provide a long term repair. A full base rebuild involves:

  • Removing the shower screen
  • Removing all wall grouts and sealants from shower recess
  • Removing the bottom row of wall tiles and the complete base of the shower
  • Inspecting the structure and make any necessary minor repairs
  • Re-sheeting as necessary, installing water stops and a new puddle flange, then fully waterproofing the area with Mapei products
  • Re-tiling the base and first row of wall tiles
  • Carrying out a full Shower Dr Shower service to the shower walls to ensure that they remain problem free
  • Re-installing taps, a shower rose and the shower screen
  • The bathroom will be left clean and ready for use

You will have a fully guaranteed, cost effective and lasting repair to your shower.

A Shower Dr Shower Rebuild

There are occasions when the whole shower recess including the wall tiles are beyond repair. In these cases your Shower Dr tradesman may recommend a full shower rebuild. This service includes:

  • Removing the shower floor and wall tiles, bedding and associated sheeting, from the entire shower recess
  • Inspecting the frame structure and make any necessary minor repairs
  • Cutting a new straight edge shower base out from existing floor
  • Re-sheeting as necessary, installing water stops and a new puddle flange, then fully waterproofing the area with Mapei products
  • This creates a ‘hob free’ shower, which in turn alleviates the issues with the older style of construction and makes for a cleaner and more user-friendly shower recess
  • Screeding a new shower base with fall to the waste and install a new waste grate
  • Re-tiling the base and walls of the shower
  • Carrying out a full Shower Dr Shower service to the entire shower recess
  • Installing taps, a shower rose and shower screen
  • The bathroom will be left clean and ready for use

This shower had badly cracked and leaking plastic shower tray. The leak had been causing severe rot in the timber floor beneath. Our solution? A shower base rebuild. A three day project replacing the plastic tray with a fully tiled shower base that is guaranteed to last a minimum of 7 years.  This is a great solution for those that need an urgent repair, but don’t have the budget for a full renovation.

The shower recess in the short shower repair video below had deteriorated to the point where repair wasn’t an option. Our client asked us undertake a full shower rebuild. They had a new shower, a full 10 year warranty and unbeatable value for money.

“I give this review 5 stars purely to the sheer effort, quality and the skills shown my Meelis while he was here over the 3 days doing all three bathrooms in our home. Meelis is the reason companies like the Shower Dr exist, its not advertising, management, a companies good name or even the owner for that matter, it is simply the people like Mel who work and bring their A game and can really showcase their abililty and blow away the customers with amazing work. What ever remuneration package this man is on simply isn’t enough. We can’t thank him enough and would have no hesitation in recommending and requesting Mel should you ever require the services of the Shower Dr.”
