Bathroom Reno with 4 O.A.K Construction

In this Bathroom Reno located in the Hollick Kenyon Area of Edmonton. We had to rebuild the client’s trust in contractors as the last one that left midway through did a number of things wrong. In collaboration with Dustin from 4 O.A.K. Construction we did just that. This is an ensuite bathroom with a wet area in which there is a self standing tub and a number of fixtures for the shower including jets, rainfall shower head, handheld and steam shower outlets.

We started by cleaning up the mess from the previous contractors. We removed the cabinets, demolished all the tile already laid, and ditra membrane. Removed the drain kit as well. We had a professional plumber, Marvin, from Beyer Plumbing check that all the rough in was properly installed.This is how the previous failure contractor left it:

After demo, we dropped the floor level of the shower so we could have a barrier less shower entry. Please see photo below

We’ve now waterproofed the entire Wet Area. There is going to be a self standing tub and a full shower with a bench, and many outlets including a steam shower. We build the bathroom floor up with wonder board so we could increase the starting height of the shower slope.

Next we tiled the bathroom floor and shower floor and back wall

One thing after another and the bathroom is now complete.

Here we show some before and after pictures hand in hand

The Great Grout Debate

Welcome to the Great Grout Debate. Where we are going to discuss which grout is better or if it is really about which one is better but for what applications specifically.

Lets begin with the grout sold at your favourite retail stores. Home Depot, Lowe’s, etc

Home Depot has your basic Custom Building Products Polyblend and then the more hardcore and expensive Custom Building Products Fusion Pro

Lowe’s has MAPEI Ultracolor Plus FA, Flexcolor CQ Premixed Grout, and MAPEI Keracolor U

The biggest thing so far is that they all carry your starting cement based grout and then the premixed grout which is either quartz particle or something else like it mixed in the grout for durability and colour consistency.

If you go to specialty shops like the ones we go to. There will also be available a Custom Grout Prism. Or the Ardex brand grout. Or the Laticrete brand grout. Or the Flextile Grout Brand.

Full Reno Conversion in Carter Crest

This job was a beautiful full Reno Conversion into a self standing tub. Below are the pictures prior to our arrival. Client chose to do some of the demolition work himself and had us finish up and prep everything for us to proceed. This bathroom went from a whirlpool jacuzzi tub on a deck/skirt to a free standing tub. The shower had a fibreglass base with tiled walls an the floors were linoleum material.

Full Reno Conversion Pictures Before:

Our plumber moved the lines from the previous position of the jacuzzi to the new self standing tub location. He also installed the new Moen rough in for the shower. Our HVAC moved the heat run from where it was located to the new position. Lastly our electrician used the previously used wire run for the jacuzzi whirlpool to power the heated floors. We removed all the linoleum, prepared the substrate, screwed down all surfaces. The first thing to do after this is to build down the shower floor for a barrier-less shower. Please take a look at the pictures below to appreciate the work in order to get that done.

We drywalled the walls. Installed kerdi waterproofing membrane. We then installed ditra heat membrane on the floor area. Installed the coil, tested it, and did a scratch coat on top.

From the shower floor area to the bathroom floor area we did an overlap of the Kerdi waterproofing to protect the heated floor system from any wet areas.

We laid tile on all walls around the Self Standing Tub only. There are times where we get asked to do wall tile on the whole bathroom like this. Plumbing finishing stage and electrical and we have ourselves a new bathroom for Ken and family.
