Water damage is a common problem often found in shower walls or just outside of the shower on the bathroom floor. The most common reasons are from a shower pan liner that was not installed properly, missing or aged silicone, missing or cracked grout, or your shower or bathtub has surpassed it's life span. A bathroom remodeling professional can usually repair the leak without removing all of the shower walls. If you have a leaking shower please contact us to explore all of the options for your leaking shower repair. Symptoms that often occur from water damaged shower walls are:

1. Wetness or dampness directly outside the shower
2. Discoloration in the baseboard or ceiling below
3. Loose tile
4. Cracked or missing grout
5. Heavy buildup of mildew around the shower/tub base
6. A musty odor

If these symptoms go unchecked, they can usually lead to extensive damage. However, if caught early repairs can often be kept to a minimum.

We recommend having your shower and tub re-silicone annually. It's your first line of defense against water penetration that can seep into the walls. Missing and damaged grout are also major contributors to water damage.
