    Hi, I am looking to specialise in wet rooms and wondered if anyone can advise on good training for this in the east midlands and also if typically you can charge a bit more for this type of work? cheers, Ben.

    Welcome Ben. Why don't you introduce yourself in the welcome area

    Yes, you can charge a bit more but then it does take more time. It all comes with experience, skill and reputation as to whether you will make it in wet rooms or not.

    Hi Ben,

    I ageee with the above. Schluter are the market leaders in wet room products and other things that go with that. They offer a free course, near Loughborough. Well worth a trip

    On a full refit, it’s usually about £1k extra all in. That’s for the former, installation and extra time to tile it.

    That’s on a budget Wet Dec though. The likes of Orbrey/Marmox/Jacko etc.

    I don’t think there’s any more money in it TBH. Just more headaches. I’ve done my fair share and now try to push people into a level access tray or low profile tray. They are so slim nowadays and colours have started to enter the market.

    This is purely talking about the average domestic market on full refits between £7k to £20k

    I can’t make it worthwhile if I do a fit under £7k.

    Average is about £8 to £10k

    Wetroom installation? You need to go to Schluter and Wedi.
    Schluter and Wedi will teach you the PRINCIPLES behind wetroom installation.
    Wetroom installation is easy as long as you remember one thing:
    Perfection is essential.
    Forget the tiling for now - preparation and waterproofing is EVERYTHING.
    Skip one element and you WILL have issues.

    It's been said over and over...
    "If you cannot use the wet area without tiles, then it's not ready for tiles."

    You can and should charge a premium. So many muppets are out there claiming to be wetroom specialists and they simply haven't a clue!
