We sometimes get asked what’s the difference between a good and great bathroom renovation. Well there’s a number of elements.
In this article we’ll focus on some of the things that are ‘behind the scenes’ so to speak – stuff that’s done during the build and renovation phase that can make a difference to the finished product and a dream bathroom renovation.
The key to waterproofing is (1) quality products, (2) surface preparation and (3) film thickness.
We only use pre-formed shower bases for our level-entry showers on a timber sub-floor. Why? Because anything else will not go the distance.
On concrete floors we will use a well formed screed that is cured and dry.
We like to know what fittings are to be installed before we start because we like to fit mounting points behind the tiles so that the fittings will stay attached for the life of the bathroom – especially important for towel rails, toilet roll holders and shower screens.
Before a single tile is laid in the bathroom renovation we will spend time working out the ideal tile layout and location of grout lines. Why? Because it can make a huge difference to the finished job.
We take time on our tiling cause it’s a critical part of the process and has a big impact on the finished quality eg:
Apart from compliant plumbing by our licensed plumber we do some little things extra in our bathroom renovation like extra clamping of hoses, silicone at penetrations, proper sealing around benchtops, neat and tidy waste pipe installation to maximise the usable space in your vanity for example.
