In this particular example, I stripped the entire bathroom: the shower cubicle, toilet, basin, wall and floor tiles all came down.
Once everything had landed in the skip, a fresh challenge: the old fashioned wooden/cement render had crumbled.
Once the old render had been shown the door, the wooden frame shyly showed its visage, and I started to marry it up with hi-tech insulating Schlüter-Kerdi-Board.
Schlüter uses new technology with a special focus on the practical requirements of construction sites. It offers many new options for installation and design.
No matter whether you work with mosaics or large format tiles, it’s essential you have an absolutely level substrate with straight and precisely angled corners both inside and outside : this is the basis for a perfect tile covering.
Once the walls were boarded up, it was time for Schlüter-Ditra, a polyethylene membrane with a grid structure of square cavities, each cut back in a dovetail configuration, with an anchoring fleece laminated to its underside.
The party can really start when Ditra, Kerdi, Kerreck, Keba are on the floor: the ARDEX DJ can start mixing!
ARDEX X 7 was first launched to the trade in the 1960s and, to this day, remains at the forefront of the professional tiling industry.
Fifteen working days; and the final result you can see on the video.
