    Get a second opinion. My strata told me the same, that a leak was from tiling in the shower that was my problem/cost to fix. Turns out there was a leak in the plumbing.

    I done all the waterproofing myself and supplied all materials for him. Is your job big. Are you re-tiling the whole bathroom?

    If it's just a repair job then that is expensive.

    Nah just the shower area. Remove and redo including waterproofing. Next challenge is to match the tiles with the rest of the bathroom

    Sounds a bit expensive. Does that include tiles or do you have to supply them? I'm sorry he priced it a bit high.

    cool, that is much cheaper than $2500. Is it only floor tiles that are water proofed or the wall also?

    Marcello is working interstate! And has given another number..

    Eric from Step On It Tiling did the bathroom, toilet and front porch of our PPOR. Not cheap but very good.

    You need to waterproof walls and floor of a shower, basically anywhere that will cop a fair bit of water.

    Hi @MsAli,
    I've had a similar situation on my end and was wondering how did you go with your job?
    How much did it end up costing you and what all was covered? Also with the walls being waterproofed, upto how many rows were waterproofed?

    Thanks.

    regards,
    Drummer

    @Drummer, luckily, the strata company recommended a few tilers.

    They were okay. I would ask for Michael to do the tiling. They sent a tiler who did the floor all wrong and we got them to re-do it. It's not as clean as our usual tiler has done for us. But he prolly has way too much business now. I will have to get back to you on the name.

    I believe the whole area was water proofed? You'd need to speak with them though.

    Another one that came recommended by a friend that we didn't end up calling...I can PM you the name and number
