Wetroom in a flat/apartment
I would like to know if it is possible to instal a wet room?
I live in a top floor flat that has wooden flooring. The building is about 15 years old.

Impey are the market leader, but I prefer a system by Aquatecnic, as they are the only company that can provide a made-to-measure shower former, ensuring you get the best technical and cosmetic finish. Check out my photos for examples...
Using a specific wet room system (fitted correctly by someone who knows what they are doing) will be the best way to avoid leaks. And a leak in a wetroom (be it apartment or normal house) means costly remedial works.
And yes, I have a 100% leak-free wetroom record... been doing
them for nearly ten years. Get in touch for more info - I'm happy to help
anyone get the job done right as I'm tired of hearing the same old line from
builders and non-specialist plumbers: 'Don't bother with a wetroom... it
All the best

Hi dave, yes its fine to install a wet room in a flat. I have fitted many wet rooms and only use system by IMPEY and I have never had any problems! Remember that any product is only as good as the person fitting it! Hope this is of some help to you.
