A fresh, modern and functional bathroom


Almost a century old, this 1930s home in Armadale, Victoria with solid brick walls was beginning to show its age.

The owners wanted a fresh, modern, and functional bathroom; a renovation which presented a variety of challenges. To make sure the technically challenging installation stood the test of time while meeting the budget and quality expectations of the client, tiler Bryce Ireland contacted LATICRETE Representatives in Victoria, Corey Downes and Chris Stenhouse to discuss the situation.

Offering a quality installation solution that met and exceeded his customers’ expectations was crucial to Bryce. After a free on-site consultation, the LATICRETE representatives were able to tailor a full installation solution to suit both the tiler and the client’s needs.

Achieving a LATICRETE 15-year system warranty, the teams were confident in the LATICRETE system. Beginning the installation, the tiling team screeded the shower base with 3701 Fortified Mortar Bed. The existing floors laid in the 1930s were an uneven concrete slab, so team relied on LATICRETE LEVEL to provide a perfectly flat floor. With time being a key factor, the team used the easily workable LATAPOXY® Moisture Shield, HYDRO BAN® and 335 Rapid, allowing for a quick and painless installation. The 335 Rapid was used to adhere the 300mm x 600mm Tundra Grey floor and wall tiles, while SPECTRALOCK PRO Premium Grout (in Stirling Silver) provided a beautiful finish.

STONETECH® Bulletproof sealer was used to provide maximum protection on the natural stone against oil and water-based stains, while preserving the stones natural appearance. The LATICRETE Representatives were both available throughout the entire installation, providing technical support throughout the project both on-site and over the phone whenever their expertise was required.

“This is one of our favourite pieces of work to date and one we are very proud to be a part of.” Bryce Ireland – Ireland Tiling

“The service from LATICRETE was second to none. Nothing was a problem, and they were always happy to share their expertise when helping us find the right products. Corey and Chris always had a solution for us.” Michael Kirwan – Professional Bathrooms
