Shower Repairs

Posted on 2018-11-30

There comes a time in the life of every shower when it will need some repairs, and more often than not, if these shower repairs are left unattended, they can lead to all kinds of problems beyond the bathroom. DIYing the problem could fix it for a while, but it might pay to consider doing it once and doing it right instead, by calling in a professional.

A professional understands all of the possible issues that can cause problems in your shower, and what can happen to other parts of your house if it’s not fixed properly. For example, after a few years, as your house expands and contracts in the summer and winter months, the grout between your tiles gradually loosens, allowing water to seep through into the walls, floors and, if left unattended, into the house frame itself.

Sealing the entire shower unit with a professional sealant like Megasealed ensures that the cracks you can see and those you can’t are no longer an issue. The additional benefit of Megasealed sealant is that you don’t need to remove all of the tiles and re-grout, saving you time and money, and unlike silicone sealants, it won’t peel. In 3-4 hours the repair is complete and your shower is ready to use within 24 hours. It also carries a 25 year product warranty, which makes it a great long-term solution.

Importantly, a professional can assess whether or not the extent of the problem means you need to re-tile. If you do, Megasealed has also created a more flexible grout, which can extend the life of your bathroom by allowing the grout to move with the natural movement of the house.
