Ditto to all that!
We are about to have the 5th floor put down in the bathroom/wetroom!!!
s so many because the original (when the bath was still in) had lino, then ceramic tiles. When hubby took the bath out, the floor tiles were re-done. Then when we wanted it all one level, so we asked the council adaptions unit and they asked the MSS to help. They very generously paid it all...........2K! We got a local firm to do it and went away for a week, so I wouldnt be stuck without a loo/shower.
On our return we discovered, the job hadnt been finished, so put up with the mess for a few days. Karndean vinyl tiles had been laid, on top of a
brand new entire floor.
About a year later, water was seeping under the tiles and hubby re-applied sealant. That was ok for a while, but there were similar problems a few months after that.
I wanted to complain to the installer, but hubby said he would fix it. He laid new vinalay…it wasnt suitable, as my shower chair rucked it up, separating the vinyl
s layers and now its all bubbled.
A chap came from the Housing Adaptations unit to sign off my recently installed ceiling hoist. he saw the wetroom and we told him about the floor problems. He said he knew of the firm who put the
new floor down. He said they had heard several horror stories about them. He then asked if we`d like him to try to get it sorted for us. Of course we agreed.
Then last week we had a letter saying there was a 14 week backlog of work and couldnt fast track us, as there are other more needy folk waiting for urgent adaptations.
We are scratching our heads in bewilderment.
So, we are looking at altro 20 marine wet room flooring now.
To get it done professionally, would cost over 1k we reckon.
To buy the stuff and fit it ourselves, would be around £200.
I would say it sounds like the right material to use…but the fitting is a different thing, eh?
Will you have it done professionally?
Hope this is our last wetroom floor.
