Bathroom Fitting Question
Fitting the bath
I'm replacing the bath. The concrete floor is not even and the old bath is standing on four bricks and not leveled very well. the tradesman suggesting to stand the new bath legs on the timber. I think that the best way to resure that the bath standing straight is to level the floor withthe new layer of concrete. Will timber deteriorate with the time in wet conditions such as bathroom?
Your new bath should have adjustable legs. If it doesn't you can raise it on timber planed to the correct thickness. Most houses have chipboard or timber floors anyway, so using timber under the bath will be ok. Use hardwood if possible, not softwood.
