Bathroom Reno in Beaumont

In this project. We were asked to do Schluter Ditra Heat both in the shower floor and the bathroom floor all in once circuit. We started with the Schluter Shower Kit by applying the waterproofing membrane (kerdi) on the walls and installing the shower pan + Curb. After that we then installed the Schluter Ditra Heat Membrane both on the bathroom floor and the shower floor. We then custom cut the curb to allow for the coil to come into the shower. As soon as we were done installing the coil, we applied a coat of mortar on top to cover the coil and also applied the kerdi membrane on the shower. Next day we started the installation of the Bolder Stone Panels and the tile respectively.

Renovation in Hollick Kenyon

We recently did a complete bathroom renovation on a house in Hollick Kenyon. We began by tearing out the previous tub surround. This tile was quite stuck on the drywall and wouldn’t come off easily so we have to remove the drywall and install new. We also removed the tile on the bathroom floor. Before we could begin tiling we had to install new plumbing as the homeowners didn’t want a tub for the new bathroom. After they selected the fixtures they wanted we were able to properly install them to prepare for installation. To prepare the floor we laid down some sub-floor where the tub had previously been, and screwed it down as well as the sub-floor that was underneath the old bathroom floor to prevent future popping of tiles. Once we had completed this the tile setters laid down a DitraHeat Membrane so there could be heated floors. Once the tile setter checked that the thermostat was working in conjunction with the coil they were able to begin installation. We spread a layer of mortar overtop of the coil and the next day set the tile. Once the floor was dry and safe to walk on we laid a waterproofing Kerdi membrane over top of the drywall, niche, shower pan, curb, and bench. We then began laying the tile. The shower features a 4×16 subway tile in a vertical staggered pattern with a 4″ waterfall mosaic and a niche. The 12×24 tile floor is also laid in a staggered pattern. It may be noted that we were asked to do a toe kick on the cabinet to replace where the old tile had previously been. Among some of the other renovations we did this this project were:

  • removal of toilet and installation of new one
  • refinishing of bathroom cabinet
  • new quartz countertop
  • painting of walls
  • installation of baseboards once floor was complete

This is a renovation we did in Fort Saskatchewan. The kitchen backsplash is a 3×6 subway tile in a brick lay pattern. It was set using ReliaBond Tile Adhesive and was grouted using a specialty Mapei FlexColor Grout. The main bathroom is a 4×16 subway tile set in a straight lay patter using VersaBond Mortar and grouted using a specialty Mapei FlexColor Grout. The laundry room floor, entrance floor and stairs, as well as the bathroom floors we set with a 12×12 tiles in a straight lay pattern using a non-modified or modified polymer thin-set as there was a concrete floor underneath. Lastly, for the ensuite shower, we first laid a waterproofing Schluter Kerdi Membrane with Premium Plus Mortar.  We used the same mortar to lay the 12×24 tile in a 70/30 staggered pattern and grouted it using a high performance, stain resistant Prism Grout.
