  • Are your tiles protruding from their natural position on the wall

  • Do your tiles have a hollow sound when you knock them

  • Has paint been peeling from your walls/ceiling in the bathroom? ·

  • Has paint been peeling on the shared walls adjacent to (or outside) the bathroom? ·

  • You see swollen timbers or moldy/dirty skirting boards in or around the bathroom

  • Are you noticing a damp or musty smell in your house, or in the rooms nearest to the shower room? ·

  • Noticing damp carpet in the rooms adjacent to the bathroom? ·

  • Has mold been growing on the clothes and shoes that you keep in your wardrobe, or is there mold growing in places on walls and ceilings in your home? ·

  • Is your current shower hard to keep to keep clean?

  • Are the existing seals black and moldy? ·
