      Discuss waterproofing and all aspects of both wall and floor tiling when tanking and creating a wetroom in this tanking and wet-room advice forum. Tanking at the very least the shower area can prevent the need to re-tile much earlier than should be expected. Not installing a tanking system is a common cause of bathrooms being needed to be re-tiled far sooner than they should need to be. Make sure you using a tanking kit at the least, in every area that water will be in direct contact with tiles.
