Bathrooms and Wetrooms

Bathrooms

A bathroom specialist, I (Paul) hone my skills by regularly attending industry-run courses, such as Schlüter's in Leicester. This covered the use of expansion gaps, innovative tile profiles, and wet rooms.

Tanking Kits

Adhesive selection is crucial, particularly in wet areas such as bathrooms, and the use of tanking kits is highly recommended by experienced tilers. A tanking kit is a resin coating applied to the walls to prevent water damage. Water damage can happen without our knowledge over a period of time and usually we only know when a stain appears on the ceiling below. Together with a waterproof rubber seal to all internal corners and above the shower tray or bath, the walls are then tiled and any visible tape is then trimmed off flush with the tiles and siliconed, giving a waterproof seal to the walls.

Bathroom Conversions

Working in partnership with established local plumbers, I also undertakes full bathroom conversions.

Before

Derek's bathroom and en-suite had suffered considerable water damage due to faulty shower valves, and therefore needed to be completely stripped down to below joist level.

New wall plates, joists and stud walls were marked out and constructed, giving a larger en-suite. A new level floor was fitted, all walls reboarded and skimmed, and both rooms benefited from new plastic ceilings and chrome light fittings.

The en-suite was fitted with travertine to both walls and floor, whilst the bathroom was fitted in large-format porcelain tiles fixed in a brick bond formation. The floor was tiled in a matching floor tile.

After

The hall was laid with large-format Portuguese limestone tiles throughout, and the conservatory was fitted with Karndean. The guest w/c was refurbished using porcelain tiles on the walls and plastic ceiling with chrome light fittings, and the utility room received limestone walls and floor.

 

Wetrooms

As trends change and our lifestyles become increasingly more hectic, time and what we do with it is of a premium. Wet rooms are very much in demand for modern, spacious wet areas in homes. Architects, property developers and home owners are keen to have safe and fast solutions to meet that demand.

I deliver an innovative and quality product that is suitable for virtually any type of property or bathroom. Simplicity and versatility are the key attributes of a wet room.

Neil and I recently attended Impey UK's training school of excellence in Somerset, the market leaders in wet room products, to keep up to date with correct wet room installation. Despite a 660 mile round trip, we both felt it was necessary in order to continue to achieve best practice.
