Leaking Showers

published on September 11, 2018 by Peter

People commonly call us and ask us are shower leaks covered. It depends on what element of the shower is leaking. If the water is leaking through the tiles or through the seals between the tiles and the tray, then the damage is not covered. If the damage is as a result of the hot, cold or waste pipe leaking then generally it is covered. A plumbers report to confirm this will be needed by your insurance company. Check your seals regularly and reseal when needed, you are obliged under the terms of your home insurance policy to maintain your property to prevent issues. The picture below is a good example of when a shower needs to be resealed.
