Leaking shower and leaking wet room.


Leaking showers or wet rooms can be annoying, but when the leak is not revealed by stains on ceilings or adjacent walls the damage is hidden, but still continues. When this happens the damage that has been caused by the leak is first noticed by loose tiles or even tiles that are falling off the wall, and there is no quick fix for this.The actual tiling mistakes are a few, I wont get too involved in each one but firstly the wrong adhesive was used, category B was used instead of category A which is waterproof. The timber used to tile to was 12mm thick instead of 18mm which is the minimum that can be used to tile too. The timber was incorrectly fitted: not enough screws were used and it didn’t even reach the shower tray, so I’ve no idea how he thought it would be watertight. The timber sheeting was not sealed or primed, this was compounded by an incorrect tiling style, he put the adhesive to the tile and pressed the tile onto the wall, all this did was to stick the tile to the dust on the timber, what he should have done was spread the adhesive on the wall and stuck the tile to it, this is why you can see the timber sheeting so clearly in the pictures when the tiled popped off, the tile didn’t actually bond to the timber. There was no tanking fitted to either the shower or the wetroom, and as this house has a pressurised water system with rain showers fitted in both rooms I think that was definitely an error of judgement.
