Halloween is all about scary stories. Whilst we don’t have any ghost stories, we can tell you a bathroom horror story or two. Over the past twenty years we have helped many customers resolve their bathroom disasters. From the mistake of purchasing poor quality suites to the catastrophic results of poor installation. The horror stories our clients have told us about over the years are as scary as any ghost stories. Here are a few scary stories about what can happen when you cut corners on your bathroom renovation.
The Attack of Damp & Mould
Much like a creature of any horror story mould is dangerous and once it takes hold, it’s hard to get rid of! Spreading throughout your bathroom and casting off its spores towards your family’s respiratory system. If your new bathroom is not designed with the correct ventilation, you will get damp and mould. This can result in both health problems as well as structural issues. This often happens when one tradesman tries to do too many jobs, important things get overlooked. Here at Bathroom Studio Design, we have experienced and qualified experts for each individual role.
The Nightmare of Faulty Fixtures
Forget The Nightmare on Elm Street, what about the nightmare of a dripping tap! Of course, nightmares usually happens when you sleep, but that drip, drip, drip ensures sleep won’t be happening. Little faults like a dripping tap do not sound so terrifying, but those little irritations daily will take its toll. Furthermore, if your fixtures are faulty its likely you will need to pay for someone to come and repair. Even if the part is under warranty. Therefore, we insist on only stocking highly reputable manufacturers such as Villeroy & Boch or Victoria + Albert.
The Strange Case of Leaky Pipes
You know the saying, buy cheap buy twice, well the cost of cheap plumbing can often be far more than double. Especially when it comes to poorly installed plumbing in your bathroom renovation. A leaky pipe doesn’t sound too scary until it is damaging your electrics or causing damp and mould. Therefore, using a quality and experienced installation team like Bathroom Studio Design will pay dividends in the long run. Especially as we offer a whole 5-year installation warranty on all bathrooms we install.
