Problem – Marble Shower Floor Leak

This Client had just purchased a home and realized that after using the marble shower for the first time, there was a noticeable leak to the ceiling below.

They stopped using the shower and after searching the internet for a contractor with experience in the construction and repair of custom tiled showers, they found Specialized Floor Care Services Company.

They gave us a call. We made an appointment to inspect the shower.  The client explained their concerns and showed us the damage to the floor below.

We conducted a shower floor leak test and the test was conclusive that there was a leak in the shower pan. The ceiling below was showing signs of water leak.  We gave the client a quote for the removal of the existing shower floor system and replace it with a new panless shower floor system.

The goal was to conduct a professional and effective full repair of the leak in the marble shower floor.

The floor was severely damaged by wrong cleaning products and from foot traffic.  The restoration process involved restoring the travertine floor by grinding, honing and polishing.  The floor was restored to its original glory.

Upon removal of tile and mud base, we discovered nails too close to the bottom of the shower pan floor in addition, the drain system was missing weep holes.  These two factors, cause water to collect in the pan and weep through the nail holes.
