Installed by BPI’s bathroom fitting team based in Bicester, this was both a surprising and challenging bathroom project to work on. Our original brief was that the shower was leaking and that the shower enclosure needed retiling and the floor too.
On stripping out the shower enclosure and taking up the first few floor tiles, a far larger problem was discovered. There had been a serious leak from the toilet and the chipboard floor and timbers under the tiles was almost completely rotten. The plasterboard on the walls lower down was also black with mould on the outer face due to some incorrect works when previously installed.
We stripped this bathroom back to the concrete block and reboarded the entire room. New pipework was run along the concrete floor and we then installed a new chipboard floor. 10mm cement board was installed over the top of this chipboard to form a sturdy, watertight surface for tiling.
A new stud wall was build to accommodate the shower enclosure again and once boarded, we tiled the shower enclosure. The floor was also tiled.
Another stud wall was built and a new concealed cistern was fitted behind with a push button. This was followed by a new back to wall toilet. The existing basin and towel radiator were reinstalled.
