How to prevent leaking showers in strata buildings

Leaking showers can be a significant problem in any building but in strata buildings the consequences of a leaking shower in one unit can be that water spreads to other units in the building. Finding a low cost and effective solution to leaking showers is essential for any strata manager or investment property owner.

What are the problems caused by leaking showers?

There are a number of different problems that can be caused by a leaky shower including damp, mould, staining of floors and carpets and potentially structural damage to the building itself. In multi-storey buildings the scenario of a leaking shower causing issues on the floor beneath is all too common. It’s a problem that needs to be fixed fast.

A cost effective solution to shower leaks

Re-sealing the entire shower and bathroom by taking up tiles and replacing the membrane underneath is not the ideal solution for many strata residents or owners. As well as the cost of completing the work, there is a lot of inconvenience involved, both to the individual unit and the units surrounding it. Many units in strata properties are rented and extensive renovations could mean a loss in rental income.

Sealing the shower with a specialised bathroom sealant can be an ideal solution to the problem of leaking showers. Shower sealing is cost effective, easy to apply and lasts for a long time. Our shower sealing product comes with a 25 year warranty which means you won’t have to worry about leaking showers for a very long time.

We offer a full shower sealing service including water detection and assessment, application of the sealing and removal and replacement of grout. Within 24 hours your residents’ showers can be ready to use again. Call us to find out more about how we can help protect the showers in your strata building.
