    Should we bother with tanking in bathroom, advice please

    Tank the lot with a membrane- Kerdi or homelux. Paint on Tanking is old hat and it slows the job down a lot.

    Need to raise screed by 15 mm in wet-room

    I agree, something like 12mm Aquapanel glued to the floor, the fun bit will be gluing it to your sloped area. Maybe cut triangular sections to form your sloped area, fill gaps with rapidest flexy.

    Sealing a shower cubicle

    Another thing a lot of people miss is that the tray to tile joint should be sealed before fitting enclosure, not necessarily the whole lot, just where the wall profiles sit. As mentioned, a shower should be sealed right down both wall profiles and bottom profile on the OUTSIDE and I often...

    Tiling on eneven bathroom walls

    If the plaster comes off well then tile straight onto your Sand/cement render, it's a good surface to tile onto but as mentioned, check the weight of your tiles. If the room is half tiled in places, cut the plaster with a stanley Knife. I would steam that old plaster, it'll pop straight off.

    Tiling on plywood - do i need noggins?

    Can't you replace the rotten boards? even if they go under your wall, just replace one at a time to maintain support for your wall. I rip up a lot of floors and stud walls not on joists is commonplace. a few noggins sounds sensible if you go that route but your replacement flooring will...

    Tiling on plywood - do i need noggins?

    For the amount of hassle you are going to be up against, I would lay a vinyl floor such as karndean or Amtico. They are better suited to bathrooms in any case.

    Tiling on plywood - do i need noggins?

    Glue and Screw Aquapanel to your existing floor. Use a rapidset flexy adhesive for gluing, 6mm trowel. Use the Glass fibre tape on joints, apply with more RS flexy. This will give the same rigidity as 18mm ply overlay. Knauf Aquapanel can be bought in Wickes. I have done a lot of...
