Debunking the Myth: Wetrooms Upstairs are Possible!
Have you heard that wetrooms can’t be installed upstairs? Well, it’s time to bust that myth! At Newlook Tiles and Bathrooms, we’ve specialized in wetrooms since 2005, and we can confidently say that with the right expertise, installing a wetroom upstairs is not just possible, but a fantastic choice for your home.
The Secret Behind Successful Wetroom Installation
It all boils down to how it’s built. Think of Velux windows. When installed correctly, they don’t leak despite heavy rain. Similarly, wetrooms need expert installation to ensure they’re leak-proof. That’s where our expertise comes in.
The Foundation: Jacko Boards
The key lies in using Jacko boards or equivalent high-quality materials. These boards are the backbone of your wetroom, ensuring complete waterproofing. They are pre-designed to facilitate proper water drainage, thanks to their factory-created fall.
Preparation and Waterproofing: A Two-Step Process
Before we even think about tiling, we prepare your subfloor outside the wet area, using cement boards or similar materials. Then, we apply a high-fiber leveling compound, ensuring a slight gradient back into the wet area for efficient drainage.
Double waterproofing is our standard. By sealing every inch of your wetroom, we create a space that’s more watertight than any traditional bath or shower tray setup.
Why Wet Rooms are Superior
Wetrooms offer a superior seal compared to baths or shower trays. We eliminate weak points by using a rubber taping system at all joints, creating a well-sealed ‘water tank’. This attention to detail in waterproofing means wetrooms are not only feasible upstairs but also a smart choice.
