We are a Shower Repair Contractor in Fort Collins Colorado.
Repair or Replace your shower
So you have a shower leak. You know it because there is a huge water stain on your ceiling in the lower level. Or you can see the bottom of your wall starting to deteriorate. There is mold beginning to grow and every time you take a shower, it gets worse.
How do you know whether it can be repaired or replaced?
Chances are, if you can see the water damage on other walls adjacent to the shower then it is time to tear out and replace. Simply putting a repair on the shower and covering up the damage can cost you way more in the long run. The surface mold you are seeing now is just the tip of the iceberg. That mold is colonized on all of the organic material such as wood in your walls.
Mold is know as a WDO or Wood Destroying Organism. It eats the wood framing of your home and will cause more damage the longer it is left to it’s way. I bet you can hear it eating your home right now..
Shower Door Repair
A very common failure in a shower is the seal at the door. As you are using your walk-in shower, water leaks at the seal around the wall or threshold. It may find a crack in the grout or at the caulking. Then it follows that crack and travels the path of least resistance to puddle at a low spot. This water can show up many feet away from where your shower actually is.
In most cases, these doors can be salvaged. They do not need to be replaced. But the damage that has occurred due to the failure in sealing, may still need to be replaced.
Shower Door Replacement
We also replace shower doors. If you need a custom frameless glass shower door or a standard door we can install either.
A new shower door can make a huge difference in the look and feel of your shower as well as protect your investment from unnecessary damage from water leakage.
Ditch the shower curtain
The old musty and dingy shower curtain needs to go. It is causing damage. Some slowly and some as we speak. They never completely stop the water from making it’s way to places you don’t want it.
Especially if you own a rental, the tenants could care less if the water is leaking out into your framing causing damage. They aren’t in it for the long haul and are probably not being diligent in keeping it dry. Putting a new shower door on the shower or bathtub can save you thousands of dollars in repair in the long run.
