This type of water leak is best left to a professional, who has the experience and knows how to stop water leakage from behind a wall. Unlike fixing a pipe under a sink, repairing a shower pipe that’s leaking behind the wall, for example, involves removing wet drywall, dealing with the possibility of moldy building materials, and drying the affected area before repairing the leak.
Afterward, the insulation, drywall, and paint, tile, or wallpaper must be replaced. This kind of work is usually beyond the capability of most people, even with the help of online videos. It’s worth the price to save time and have the peace of mind and warranty that comes with using a professional company.
