Here are just a few examples of water damaged wetroom repairs that I have encountered throughout the years. Bear in mind, water leakage occurs due to improper craftsmanship, poor understanding of how a wetroom works and lack of expertise. All these water ingressed properties are properly assessed, the cause of water migration is identified to make sure the same mistake will not happen again. Although, all these wetrooms share something in common, water seeping down below, every single job repair is unique. No job is alike. Constructing a proper wetroom requires expertise in the following, water damage assessment, timber joist reinforcement, floor and wall repair, proper waterproofing, patience is a must as it is time consuming and finally the tile installation. The wetroom kits and materials used are carefully chosen, it all depends on the job requirements. We endorse Schluter Kerdi, Ardex, Ball, AquaSeal and TileRite products. Although, there is no best wetroom kit on the market available, we prefer polyethylene membrane/corner seals over slurry kits. Custom poured concrete wetroom trays are the number one option followed by Schluter Kerdi wetroom trays, which are a lightweight preformed extruded polystyrene. The old school way is combined with new technology to come up with a better wetroom waterproofing product to make it last. Always on the look out for better materials. Additionally, being up to date with the wetroom industry is a must. Expertise is everything.    

Frequent Asked Questions


Q: Why is my wetroom leaking downstairs?

A: The waterproofing seals failed, that is when the water damage occurs.

Q: How do I partially fix the water leakage?

A: Most wetrooms do not show water damage signs. Therefore, it is hard to tell where exactlly the water leakage occurs. So, a partial repair it is not a promise. Most times you will end up removing the bottom portion of the wetroom. 

Q: How long will it take to fix the wetroom leakage?

A: As we cannot tell what is behinde the tile, or how it was constructed etc., we cannot estimate a time frame at first sight. Once the floor is removed, we will run a further assessment of the water damage. We then can come up with a work schedule thereafter. However, we can confirm, it is time consuming to properly repair a water damaged wetroom.

Q: What is the best wetroom kit available on the market?

A: There is no best wetroom kit available on the market. Although, we endorse polyetylene membrane over slurry kits. Vertical drains with large flange such as Schluter Kerdi Drains & extruded polystyrene wetroom trays and seals. See pictures above.

Q: Our tiler waterproofed the entire area, yet it leaks. What did he do wrong?

A: Usually a wetroom fails because it was improperly constructed/waterproofed. It is a common error within the industry.

Q: Our wetroom floor is cracked, How do I fix that?

A: The origin of the crack would have to be identified first, then it can be fixed

Wetroom repair
Our wetroom was leaking downstairs. It was repaired twice in five years. The builders did not want to take responsability a third time. We called on Tile Marble Granite to come over to have a look at the wetroom and assess the water ingress. He came over same day, looked at the job and told us what is going on and why it leaks. We ended up hiring him straight away as he was very confident in his wetroom repair field. He removed the rotted floor, timber was replaced, installed a proper wetroom tray, waterproofed the area several times as needed and retiled. Wetroom is fixed now, 100% waterproofed. He is very knowledgeable in water damaged wetroom repairs. As he says, ''expertise is everything''. Very impresive work. Cannot recommend him well enough.
