A Wetroom needs a proper foundation to enable the installation to achieve longevity and maintain its waterproof integrity, therefore it is essential that you choose the right people to do the work for you. You must have a stable wet room floor, slopes that enable the water to run away into a suitable drain and the wetroom area should be properly tanked.
Tanking simply means waterproofing and there are various methods of doing this –
- Rubber Paint & Chemical Seals
Has the advantage of proven waterproofing ability, & complete simplicity of application. Applied by brush, or roller the choices are a thicker ‘rubber type’ polymer that completely coats the area’s at risk & forms a visible protective barrier, or a thinner chemical seal that soaks into a substrate to resist water ingress into that material. Application & drying times can be similar. A tape is often used to bridge gaps & joints so they can be sealed. Rubber paint has the advantage of being much more visible during the build-up time that may take a day or two. Thus, gaps can be seen & re-covered more easily.
The use of joint sealing tape is used to secure cement that dries to for a barrier. Relying on cement only depends upon the manufacturer in question. Some wet room systems completely rely on 3rd party suppliers for waterproofing. In these circumstances, the question of responsibility becomes almost impossible to judge, & therefore who should be approached if leaks occur can become an impossible battle. If this worries you, consider a company that provides the complete system & will back it up.
- Rolls of Material
Some systems offer rolls of material to form a barrier. Made from rubber, re-enforced matting, or even a bitumen style material, these can require many more processes and be more difficult to apply than a rubber paint or chemical system. They will also need a higher level of skill, knowledge & experience than a brush & roller system. They should be considered suitable for those with higher levels of knowledge, skill & experience
Add to this an underfloor heating system and your room is completely transformed into a warm, inviting, relaxing environment to enjoy and indulge in. Electric underfloor heating systems are most suitable for wet rooms, bathrooms, shower rooms, kitchens, conservatories and any general living areas where ceramic or stone tiles are laid. Electric underfloor heating is a form of Radiant Type Heating. This kind of heating is a gentle comfortable heating that is silent, economical and efficient. Radiant heating does not heat the air, it heats the person and surrounds such as furniture. It provides an even form of heat in a room and is therefore more economical and energy efficient. Underfloor heating not only makes for a more comfortable environment, it is a more economical one. Typical operating temperatures can be 1 to 2 degrees lower than conventional heaters, reducing energy costs by as much as 10%.
