Shower Pan Leaks in Cape Coral | What Does a Shower Pan Repair Entail?
If you have recently discovered that your shower pain leaks, you’re probably already considering which Cape Coral professionals to call. But do you know what to expect with this type of repair? Here’s what you need to know.
Detecting Shower Pan Leaks
While this type of leak is pretty obvious most of the time, the repair team may do a small “flood test” to make sure they can pinpoint the problem. Sometimes, other pipes leading to the shower may be the actual culprit. They’ll look at things like the wall and ceiling around the shower, to make sure they don’t see indicators that the leak is coming from elsewhere.
Removing the Shower Pan
The only way to fix a leaking shower pan is to replace it. This includes tile showers, concrete showers, fiberglass showers, natural stone showers, or any other materials. The pan must be removed, and a new pan will be installed. If you have a one-piece fiberglass shower stall, you may be able to save the walls, but you may also have to replace the entire shower stall.
Final Bathroom Inspection
In order to do a thorough job and ensure your home is safe from water damage, the plumber will look for any signs of dampness or mold and will do a very careful inspection of the rest of the bathroom. They should inspect the drywall, the pipes, and any other bathroom components.
