Bad Shower Leak



Hi all,

I was inspecting a house the other day and was going well until i came to the bathroom.

The shower had been leaking through cracked tiles and poor silicone sealant at the wall and floor junction. While this is very common for a shower to be leaking in approximately 60%-70% according to Quality Building Inspections, this was at a whole new level. (see video in the video section of the Quality Building Inspection website)

After further investigation we found that the shower had been leaking for a considerable amount of time because we had moisture damage along the entire shower wall up to a meter and half from the shower recess. We also discovered that the timber skirting in the adjacent linen cupboard had rotted that bad that there was not much left in sections.

Further problems can occur from these kind of damages such as timber rot and termite infestations.

Major problems like these have the potential to cost more and more the longer they are left. If you think you have a issue in your home and would like a second opinion call us today on 0408817898 or email info@qbinspections.com.au. We would be happy to help you over the phone or in person.

QBI are amazing. Very detailed, very in-depth reports that made the most of the inspection. Spent time answering all questions I had and were better value than other local inspectors - was even able to recommend a great pest inspector too

Have used David for a couple of properties now, wouldn't use anyone else. Incredibly thorough reports and great one on one conversations, explaining everything. Wouldn't buy a house without consulting him! He's helped me dodge a bullet before, that would of cost me a couple of hundred thousand.

Dave was great, very informative, easy to talk too and ensured I seen the issues I needed sorted before putting house on the market. Was worth every dollar as the money spent on my issues I feel will ensure a smooth sale.
Thanks Dave.

I had David do a preventative maintenance inspection on our butcher shop at the Gawler Green. It was a very valuable inspection as we found a leak coming from the tenancy next door. David's thermal imaging and moisture testing was used to find the problem . It was easily fixed before it became a big and expensive repair . His service was professional and great , I'll be using his maintenance inspections regularly.
