Express Weathertightness Report
A visual inspection using moisture scanners and qualified weathertightness assessors to assess the weathertightness risks and provide guidance on the way forward.
Identify weathertightness risks and carry out probe testing into the framing to determine moisture contents and soundness of the timber. Provide guidance on the likely extent of the leaks.
Includes invasive probe testing to determine areas that are likely to be damaged by mould and timber decay. Further testing is then carried out by cutting into the cladding to identify the extent of damage. A report is produced that will provide you with the required repair strategy and detailed report on the results of testing, defects and remedial work required.
Leaky showers are very common in New Zealand houses – both new and old. Why is this? Modern showers rely heavily on sealants and membranes and often the installation of those crucial components are not done correctly, or some case not done at all. The first signs of leaky showers is often swollen or deformed skirting boards near your shower. This may be on either side of the wall. If you have a tiled shower then signs of failure include cracks in the grout and/or a build-up of mould which keeps reoccurring after cleaning.
Leaky showers are often expensive to fix and usually require full replacement of the cubicle and sometimes includes framing replacement. Damage to underlying framing rapidly gets worse if the problem is not identified early and the cost esculates.
Call Property Check if you suspect you have a leaky shower or would like your shower checked for signs of leaks. We have special equipment and expertise to identify if your shower has leaky issues, or to find out what the extent of damage might be.
