Bathroom Fitting

Bathroom radiator/electric shower install before or after tiling?

Hi, I am looking to retile my bathroom, as well as replace an existing radiator and probably replace the electric shower too. Is it better to replace the shower&radiator first, or have the tiling done before the radiator and shower are replaced? I'm a homeowner looking to have this work done and trying to figure out what order I should get people in. Thanks

If you already have your new radiator and a new shower then before start tiling make sure the pipes and cable are in the right position. Please get bathroom installer who can carry out work from A-Z. And get the job done right. Otherwise you can end up with tiler blaming plumber and plumber blaming sparky if something not right.;)

Install the pipes and cables in the appropriate and desired positions. Ensure to allow some wiggle room so the pipes and cables positions can be adjusted if needs be after tiling is completed. Once tiling is completed, connect rest of radiators and shower units.
