RW Plumbing offer a wet room installation as part of our Bathroom Installation Birmingham and Solihull service and have been installing these rooms for many years. This has helped us to tackle and overcome every possible problem that may occur along the way which gives us a great insight into surveying a room for potential issues with the installation.
Wet Room Drainage
Making sure the drainage is correct is one of the most difficult area of the installation as the gradient has to be almost unnoticeable but enough for the water to drain perfectly so as not have puddles. The gradient is usually produced using a ply sub floor that is laid as the base and then tiled over. Other options include installing a giant flat shower tray that is hidden with tiles.
Wet Room Waterproofing
The entire wet room then needs to be waterproofed. Waterproofing usually includes preparing the floor with a primer, along with the lower area of the wall around the shower area. Once this has set, the area is ready to tile.
