Is your shower leaking through your tiles? Leaky tiles can occur anywhere where water is used, whether it’s a shower, a wet room or a kitchen splashback. They can often cause damp and mould within surfaces behind tiles, and can even threaten the structural integrity of walls, so it’s important to tackle the issue at the first sign of a leak.
Water getting behind tiles can also damage the tile adhesive, which could cause tiles to come loose, and possibly fall off the wall altogether.
So how can you stop water getting behind tiles? In this handy guide we’ll walk you through how to replace your grout and silicone which will seal the tiles without having to remove them. If you’ve got a serious leak on your hands however, you’ll need to remove the tiles and install a waterproofing system before putting them back.
