The steps of this Bathroom Renovation
When the work is carried out, a waste removal skip arrives on the first morning. We remove all of the existing bathroom products and the floor and wall tiles. WE do not use any of the existing products and as much as we can replace the water feeds and waste pipes within the bathroom, going back to the soil stack where we can. When removing products, any loose wall material such as plaster or plaster board is also removed.
Water pipes and waste pipes hidden
All waste pipes and water pipes are either hidden below the floor or within the wall coming out into the position behind a basin or toilet. In the image below the back wall shows the water hot and cold feed for the basin, cold feed for the toilet. The waste pipe for the basin comes from the floor. To the right of the image the two radiator pipes can be seen in the wall. The floor has been strengthened with 12mm ply. The ply floor has then been screwed down to strength the floor and reduce the possibility of the grout and floor tiles cracking.
The shower hot and cold feed pipes are placed in the void within the wall and then the wall closed with plaster board. The shower pipes are hidden. We have fitted isolation valves to the pipes at the point just before they go into the wall, this area is between the bath and the bath panel, which will hide the shower isolation valves.
