What exactly is a wet room?

A wet room is a waterproof shower room which has an open, fully tiled shower area. It is constructed using water resistant materials and is made fully waterproof before tiling, this allows the whole room to get wet without causing any damage or leaks and also eliminates the need for a shower tray and screen.

This fully waterproofed room features a level access walk in shower and for that reason wet rooms are ideal for those with reduced mobility.

Although there isn’t a visible shower tray, to achieve the level access look, a pre-made former (a special waterproof wet room shower tray) is fitted below the tiled floor. The former is gently sloped ensuring that the water drains away quickly and efficiently.

A wet room screen can be fitted to protect the rest of the area from splash, however it is perfectly safe to use the whole room as a showering area. The features of a wet room are endless, so why not transform your bathroom into a space you’ll love!

Are wet rooms actually waterproof?

Yes, the whole room is completely waterproof, the membrane is applied before the tiles so you could actually take a shower in there before its even tiled.

Advanced waterproofing systems are more commonly used abroad, particularly in countries with timber framed houses where leaks would cause substantial structural damage, the systems used in these countries are regulated by the building code.

Unfortunately in the UK there are no regulations on how or who installs waterproofing systems, at Ultimate Wetrooms we have the expert knowledge and experience in waterproofing techniques which is why our wet rooms last!
