Complete shower rebuild

This job was carried out for some regular customers in a rental property in Liskeard. It was to replace a shower cubicle, tiling and electric shower.

Initially, the owner wanted us to just fit a new electric shower as they were concerned about the reliability of the old one. However, upon close inspection it was found that the tiles were coming off the wall, the previous shower had been leaking and this had rotted the plinth and chipboard floor. So the only option was a complete new shower cubicle with all new tiles and plumbing.

Once the old shower was taken out and all the mess cleared up, we cut the rotten section of floor out and fitted new chipboard. A new Mira shower tray was installed and plumbed into the waste pipe. We then tiled the walls, grouted and installed the new electric shower. The final stage was to fit the shower enclosure and seal it all with sanitary grade silicone. We also re-sealed around the existing sink and bath.

The job turned out well and was completed on schedule to the customer's satisfaction as the following before and after picture shows.
