How to keep your shower niche waterproof
There’s nothing worse than a leaky shower. Bathroom leakages can cause expensive damages due to moisture buildup, mould growth and seepage, and these issues are most commonly linked to the shower.
If your builder baulks at the suggestion of adding a shower niche, it may be because they’ve dealt with some nasty leaks stemming from the niche. But there are ways to ensure your niche is 100% waterproof.
Take the pressure off your builder
Experienced builders, tilers and plasterers can attest to the fact that shower niches are a key area of concern when it comes to shower leaks. No matter how tight and sturdy the joins may look, natural house expansion and contraction can open the smallest of hairline cracks that allow water to slowly penetrate into the wall.
But this can be avoided by using the right kind of niche when building or remodelling a bathroom. Thankfully, shower niches no longer have to be built in by a builder. They can be purchased pre-made using waterproof materials that protect your shower from leakages.
Install a waterproof niche
A key benefit of The Niche Man’s shower niches is that they’re 100% waterproof. We produce them locally in Australia using high quality, durable and lightweight polyurethane. They come as a high density rigid panel, square and ready for your builder to install and your tiler to tile over. Alternatively, our pre-finished metal and glass niches are ready to go and don’t require any tiling.
100% waterproof. Easy to install. Saving you time and money (especially considering you won’t need to repair any leaks in future!). The Niche Man niches are a great solution to ensure a leak-free shower.
