When I was building my home, I didn’t realize the importance of the right bathroom fixtures and didn’t think that a bathroom surgeon (a professional who performs root canal operations) would need to be on hand to help me. In fact, I didn’t really worry about having anyone come in to help me, since I felt that everything was going fine. But after a few months, when I was putting the finishing touches on the bathroom, I started to notice some unexpected wear and tear. Rather than see this as a sign of the house needing major work, I started to panic. Why had my bathroom fallen into such disrepair?
Luckily for me, my doctor (a professional who performs root canal operations) was on hand to help me. “A leaking shower is tough to detect, because the damage is often masked. Serious instances may cause structural damage to your floor, plastering/mortar work or even the ceiling in the area underneath your toilet. Fortunately, most shower repairs are relatively easy and won’t require any major plumbing issues. Still, it’s crucial to have your leaks fixed right away, because a leaking shower causes long term damage to your toilets, floor and ceiling. A bathroom surgeon (or an equally qualified tradesperson) can usually detect problems like these before they become too severe.
Tile repairs can also be quite easy if you know what you are doing. Bathroom tile repairs are pretty much standard these days and most of the time they can be completed in a matter of hours with the right tools. If you are looking to save some money and make bathroom tile repairs yourself, it’s important that you do some research and find out exactly what tools you need to successfully complete the repairs. Most home improvement stores carry a small collection of pliers, wire cutters and other useful tools. Just make sure that you choose tools that suit your skills and don’t forget to have a protective covering on hand – we’ll talk about that next!
