When DIY Wet rooms go wrong

From time to time, we get a call from a panicked individual who has tried to do the tiling themselves and it has gone lightly pear shaped.

This can be through a classic misunderstanding of the patience and skill actually required or through a simple lack of skill.

And that is exactly what happened recently when we received a call from a resident in Hyndland who had tried to add a wet room to their tenement flat themselves. It hadn’t gone to plan and soon the downstairs neighbour was knocking on their door complaining that water was dripping into their bathroom through the floor above.

The panicked resident got our number because we had actually done the tiling of the tenement flats hallways previously and the downstairs neighbour had held onto our card because a) they saw the quality of the tiling work that we had done, b) were impressed at our friendly attitude and c) (and this is the most important one) they knew we would turn up quickly to get the issue fixed.

And that is what we did. We were able to quickly identify where the water was penetrating and thankfully for the customer, it only required a small amount of re-tiling. It could have been a lot worse of course.
