My project 20

Are you thinking about taking your bathroom or en-suite to the next level? Before going through with your bathroom installation / refurb, we recommend spending some extra hours planning and visualising your new room to make sure it is perfectly suited to your wants and needs.

What is involved in a bathroom installation

Now it’s time to plan what sort of work will be involved in the renovation…Depending on how extensive the amount of work will be there can be many specialists that will have to assist your project. We will try to include them all below:

Old bathroom suite removal and disposal:

Before things can get started we need to have all of the old items removed. Next we’ll prepare the area for the new items’ arrival. It can sometimes be surprising to customers that the disconnection and withdrawal of the existing bathroom items can involve high costs and can take longer than expected.

Our customers often find relief in hearing that we take care of all waste. Offering our customers a hassle-free solution where we remove the old bathroom, disconnect and dismantle all items, before disposing of all the waste.

We pay a huge attention to the way the waste is managed. we’ll also discuss the removal of waste with the customers. At 3Flo we try our best to manage our waste removal following environmentally friendly practices.

Electrical work

There can be very little or quite a lot of electrical work involved in these projects. This depending on the age of your current bathroom, and the last time someone investigated the electricity in the room. 

Majority of our bathroom renovations involve installing power saving LED lights that look very elegant and enchanting. Depending on what you want to have in your bathroom, there can be more electrical work involved.

Maybe you want to install an electric shower? Heated flooring? Built in mirror lighting? The costs will obviously vary depending on the list of the jobs involved and rates of your electrician. Importantly, check that the person undertaking such works has all necessary qualifications and experience to have it done up to safety standards.

Plumbing

There is no need to underline how important it is to get all the plumbing work done correctly. Installation of new bathroom appliances should be carried out to the highest standards without compromising on the quality. This is because any water leaks can cause a lot of damage to the bathroom, sometimes to surrounding rooms of the property or even surfaces below the flooring level.

Tiling & Flooring

Depending on what you decide to have on the floor and walls, tiling can play a huge role on the overall look of the room, and the bill too! The tiling, in our opinion, should be done flawlessly. And we do not mean that it should just look good, it has to be executed in the most professional way, using the best materials to prevent unwanted leaks, and make it look nice for years after the renovation.

Whatever you decide, we always advise our customers that there are a couple of areas that should be tiled. These include: around the bath, sink and obviously floor. It is all to make the room as waterproof as possible,and to prevent dampness or mold developing. Some people decide to have the walls tiled only half-way. Which is a good idea too, but you should remember about using special, waterproof paint around the room. The amount of steam and water around in the room can be very intrusive to the walls and ceiling.

Correctly fitted flooring is a must in the bathroom installation. If you decide to install a wetroom, where the shower tray is replaced by a fully tiled area, the need of having tiles properly installed has to become the priority. Waterproofing the space is essential to prevent the water from splashing around and creating a dampness below the flooring surfaces.

Time & Costs

A new bathroom installation or renovating an old bathroom can add major value to your property. Not to mention the satisfaction of your brand new bathroom! The final bill can vary depending on how much work will be done by yourself. If you are a DIY fan, or if you employ specialists (like ourselves) to carry the whole project for you.

There are so many different jobs involved in a complete bathroom renovation. Most say that the best cost and time effective option, would be to engage a professional company that you trust and know can do it all for you.

We would say that an ordinary bathroom installation usually takes 10-14 working days to complete. But! We always prefer to say it could take longer than that as every bathroom is different and because there could be some unexpected issues involved. We want our customers to be fully aware of what could happen so there’s no nasty surprises when you receive the bill.
