On The walls of the wetroom
We secure 12mm specialist boards to the wall areas, then we seal the joints with a waterproof paint and neoprene tape. The wall is now completely water proof, tiles will adhere to it 6 times better than if you tiled onto plasterboard. The tile grout lines will stay clean and not turn black. There is no silicone joint to go black and leak as this is not needed using this system to create your wetroom.
We calculate the exact amount of boards, tape and paint you will need for your wet room so there is no wastage.

On the floor of the wetroom
There are many sizes of wetroom formers to use, dependent on the finish required. If you require a level access wetroom we use a 30mm deep tray and rebate it into the floor then put 10mm elements boards onto the remaining floor area to create the level floor. The joints are then taped and painted the same as the walls to create the water proof area. At this stage electric underfloor heating can be installed prior to tiling. This will work efficiently as the elements boards used have very good insulation properties. within the wetroom we would recommend low slip tiles on the floor or use mosaic tiles as they break the surface area down. We have a large selection of tiles suitable for wetrooms at our bathroom showroom in Harrogate
Storage in your wetrooms
We often incorporate a water proof storage system in the walls of the wet room. These can be used for shower gels and hair products. These waterproof boxes are made from the same product that is used on the walls and floor of the wetrooms and are ready tilling.
A suitable light can be installed prior to tiling.
With the use of the insulated, water proof boarding on the shower and wetrooms floor, this offers us the perfect substrate to add electric underfloor heating prior to tiling. The insulation forcing the heat upwards into the room. Making this the primary heat source for your wetrooms shower room.
