What is a Wet Room?
Wet Rooms are waterproofed (tanked) rooms usually equipped with a walk in shower.
The Wet Room itself becomes the shower enclosure, with a shower drain inset into a gently sloped floor in place of a conventional shower tray.
How Do we Ensure That Your Wet Room Does Not Leak
Tanking is a waterproofing procedure carried out in bathrooms, Wet Rooms, shower rooms and sauna/steam rooms, which protects the fabric of the building against moisture migration and leaks (steam, shower spray, etc).
Contrary to popular belief, all Wet Room flooring including tiles, adhesives and grouts are permeable and therefore can allow moisture to migrate into the structure over time causing mould growth, rot, and in some cases resulting in structural damage.
Professionally sealed tanking is of paramount importance as this is the stage of the installation upon which all other areas of the build depend on, GT Bathrooms are experts in providing waterproofing services.
Touch wood but we've not made it rain in anyone’s lounge to date and we intend to keep it that way, that is why we check and double check that all our joints and seals are 100% water tight prior to commencing to the next stage of the build.

Can You install a Wet Room in to any house or apartment?
- Yes, you can replace your shower room/ bathroom in any house or apartment with a wet room.
The style of your wet room may vary depending on your floor profile. If you are looking for level access showering, the shower drain needs to be installed completely into your floor. In some buildings this is not possible, as you may not have enough space beneath the actual floor i.e. the depth of the flooring screed is insufficient or the wooden joists are not deep enough.
