If carried out correctly, bathroom renovations will always be worth the money spent, and more. Statistics prove that bathrooms and kitchens sell houses. These rooms warrant that extra outlay in budget; they are proven to add a healthy return on your investment.
This room is important to get 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.
It is not advisable or good practice to have to many tradesman in a confined space trying to achieve their work at once.. With good organisation of those tradesmen, we will have your job running efficiently through till completion and your new bathroom will be up and running as quickly as possible.
If any unforeseen circumstances arise, we will contact you immediately 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. The reduction in movement will 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 to follow is waterproofing. We offer a 5 year workmanship warranty and a 15 year product warranty.
Gib-stopping is then completed. This prepares the surfaces for painting and tiling etc.
A tiler is then engaged and tiling is installed. 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.
After tiling is finished, 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.
