Water leaks cause expensive headaches and real health concerns. Water leaks usually lead to mold that makes some people really sick. Top it off with rotting wood you have some real repair work. Our job is to make sure water stays in the tub.

Slow tub or shower grout leaks?

Grout and caulking decay over time, and cracks develop. That’s when water seeps behind walls and floors causing tub and shower pans to corrode or to actually sink due to softening wood supports. The problem gets bigger when more water intrudes, leading to major repairs in plumbing, carpentry, tile work and more. Insurance rarely covers these expenses.

Precautions
