This was a renovation job for a new customer who contacted us to take advantage of our free quotation offer. LH Gas Ltd visited the property, discussed the requirements, supplied a quote and were pleased to be given the work
Our client’s plan was to modernize the existing ensuite, so we proposed two options: either to transform the whole space into a wet room, or to create a walk-in shower room. Our client decided that a walk-in shower room would be more practical.
The first stage was to remove all existing sanitary ware into a skip that LH Gas had hired from FROOMS. Then we removed all existing tiles and plasterboard.
All new walls
This is an important part of a renovation because we believe old plasterboard in a bathroom will always contain some damp and water damage. By installing new plasterboard or plywood we can guarantee a longer life bathroom/shower room as all the walls will be 100% water and moisture proof.
We used 18mm plywood in the dry areas and 12mm moisture proof plasterboard in the wet section. All intersections were then taped and joined. The floor was laid using 6mm ply floor cover and a low profile shower tray was installed.
Tiling and decorating
Then we started on the tiling. In the shower area we used modern light coloured smooth large tiles, ground and siliconed in all corners around the shower tray, to fully waterproof the enclosed area.
The floor was laid in the same tiles and a tiled skirting board was installed, while the rest of the room was decorated using a specialist bathroom paint.
All sanitary ware was chosen from PURA, allowing our customer to use our extensive trade discount. Our client selected a two door vanity unit with basin, along with a PURA FLOVA mixer tap. A two door mirrored wall mounted cupboard was also chosen. As an extra touch, LH Gas used one of the large tiles to create a splash back for the basin area.
Smart new shower
A large overhead shower and a hand held shower and two way valve was installed in the shower area. The shower enclosure incorporated a rigid and robust doorframe in polished aluminium with a smooth sliding door to create a fashionable centrepiece for the room. Finally as a finishing touch we installed a modern ladder towel rail.
Our customers were so pleased we will soon be returning to their property to carry out another bathroom renovation!
