This is a room where it is important to get it right so we always recommend quality fixtures and fittings.
We require all fixtures and fittings to be onsite prior to renovation and building work commencing.
Not everyone can be in there working at the same time. With good scheduling of those tradesmen, we will have your job running smoothly through till completion and your new bathroom will be up and running as quickly as possible.
If any unforeseen issues arise, we will be in immediate contact with you to discuss your options and our recommendations; we will work with you to keep your bathroom renovation moving forward smoothly.
If we replace the particle board flooring, then existing floor joists will be nogged at .400ctrs to form a grid pattern. This is because timber moves with dampness, swelling and then shrinking as it dries.
By forming this grid, the H3.2 tanilised plywood or compressed sheet can be glued and screwed to these joists and nogs to form a rigid brace. This will reduce movement and in turn help prevent the waterproof membrane applied to the floor from splitting or cracking through movement. This ensures the waterproofing does its job.
Solid tongue and groove flooring as you would see in villas and bungalows can still be used but will require a minimum of three coats of polyurethane applied as a waterproof membrane.
Next is waterproofing. We offer a 5 year workmanship warranty and a 15 year product warranty.
Gib-stopping is next. This prepares the surfaces for painting and tiling etc.
A tiler is then engaged and tiling is carried out. If underfloor heating is required this is carried out prior to tiling. Underfloor heating comes with a lifetime undertile warranty and a 5 year warranty on thermostat controls.
Once tiling is completed, the plumber and electrician can come back and finish the final fit of fixtures and fittings.
Glass shower doors or screens can be installed. If a cubicle shower with an acrylic liner is being used, these can be installed prior to tiling.
