Waterproof Wall Panels In Bathroom
Waterproof wall panels can quickly change the appearance of a bathroom. Whether you add waterproof panels behind a bath or set up decorative wall panels throughout the room, the installation process is basically the same. Most bathroom panel pieces come in 1.3 of 2.4m (4 by 8 foot) sheets. If you have basic joinery skills, installing bathroom wall panels should be a simple task. Preparing the walls can take as long as actually hanging the bathroom panels.
Set the waterproof wall panels in a nearby room to acclimatize for at least 24 to 48 hours before you begin. Stand the panels at the end or lay them flat with scrap wood between them as distances. Remove all luminaires on the wall. Remove electrical outlet cover with a screwdriver. Take all previous wallpapers, in addition to wallpaper and paint, away to plasterboard or cement auxiliary board. Use a spatula or scraper to remove any remaining pieces.
Use a tip to gently remove all trim and casting of floors, ceilings, doors and windows. Repair the waterproof wall panels if needed. If plaster shows signs of mold, find the leak and fix it before proceeding. Locate the rules with a control detector. Mark each bolt with a chalk line. Most studs are 40 cm (16 inches) in the middle, so when you find a stud, you should be able to find the adjacent by measuring 40 cm (16 inches) from the bolt.
