Instarmac turn up the heat on a stunning bathroom refurbishment19th July 2017
TTA member and ‘Tile Fixer of the Year’ finalist, Andy Carroll & Son Tiling were commissioned to install underfloor heating and tiles in a detached Staffordshire home. All subfloor preparation, fixing and grouting was completed using products from the Instarmac tile adhesive brands.
Working onto an overboarded timber substrate, Andy installed the Warmup DCM-PRO system. Taking only minutes to install, this simple to use electric matting system is the fastest heated decoupling solution available.
Following best practice, Andy levelled over the underfloor heating with Level IT Rapid. This flexible floor leveller protects the heating wires from damage during tiling, creates a uniformed heat across the finished floor, and provides an ideal subfloor especially for large format tiles.
The homeowner chose 600 x 600 porcelain floor tiles to create their desired stylish look. These were fixed using ProFlex SP+ES, a cementitious adhesive with an extended set for intricate tiling work and large format tiles. Classified with an S1 rating, ProFlex SP+ES is ideal for use on timber floors and with underfloor heating systems, accommodating any movement or vibration from either.
The bathroom was finished with FlexJoint grout in Jasmine – a soft, delicate neutral tone, which compliments natural stones and lighter coloured tiles. Its polymer modified formulation provides excellent flexibility and also a super fine texture for easy application. FlexJoint is available in 11 different colours, including the recently added Taupe, ideal for use with most wood-effect tiles and Mid-Grey.
For sealing edges within the bathroom, ProSeal IT silicone was available in matching Jasmine. Grout and silicone colour matching is available across the range and makes life a whole lot easier whilst providing the best possible finish to tiling projects.
