How we do it

The Process

Detailed Diagnosis

It's imperative that the correct diagnosis is achieved. We will conduct a free on-site inspection to collect all evidence and complete a detailed 30-point inspection. Using a moisture detection device, we are are able to pin-point the exact moisture placement & content within the walls.

Comprehensive Quoting

Our trained quoting technicians will provide a detailed formal quote which will include all available solution options for your project. You will also receive a site diagram of the existing moisture placement within the walls - this allows you to better see and understand any issues that are present.

Quality Work

Having professional & qualified tradesmen conduct the works is paramount. Our technician are industry specialists and are trained in The Shower Doctor's innovative waterproofing and material application systems. This ensures the job will be done once and done right!

"Do it Once, Do it Right"

That’s our Motto

                               Are you experiencing? :
 –   Blistering Paint/Plaster                –   Missing/Mouldy Grout
 –   Mould and Soap Scum                 –   Calcium Build-up
 –   Cracked Tiles or Grout                 –   Damp Walls
 –   Leaking Taps/Fixtures                  –   Peeling/Mouldy Silicone

If your Bathroom or Shower is showing any of the above symptoms, then it’s in drastic need of some attention and repairs. In most cases no tiles will need to be removed.

The Shower Doctors unique and one of a kind approach to waterproofing set us apart. Our method of injecting an industrial grade waterproofing membrane in behind the tiles makes for a far more effective and reliable outcome. Successful waterproofing treatment of grout porosity relies upon the removal of body fats and soap residuals. This is an integral step in our procedures, before sealing.

We promptly send out professional and punctual technicians to diagnose the source and cause of the issues using our specialised detailed 30 point inspection checklist (which includes water detection testing).

If unattended, these issues can soon turn into serious health problems and become structural issues in timber frame construction. So why wait? All waterproofing procedures and applications are backed with a 6 Year Guarantee for your peace of mind.

Stop leaking showers without removing tiles!
