Bathroom With Wood Floor

Bathrooms are by nature wet, moist places, and that’s why materials like tile or cut stone are popular. Unless properly treated and sealed by professionals or prefinished specifically for a bathroom floor, a wooden floor can develop moisture problems, especially under the toilet. Make sure the floor you choose will work for a bathroom. If not, go with another choice. If you are using the existing toilet flange that’s level with the present floor, it will have to be raised up to be level with the new thicker floor. Get flange extension kits from a good plumbing-supply house. They will attach to the present toilet drain and raise the flange height. Once you raise the flange, cut and seal all the flooring around the new flange to complete the job. If you are completely running a new toilet drain and you have open access underneath the bathroom, call a plumber to help you. Running a new toilet drain is a job for the pros. Install the wooden floor first and mark the location for the toilet drain, making sure to avoid any floor joists. Then the plumber will drill a large hole right through the new wooden floor and the subfloor, making a neat clean hole. A special low-profile flat flange is now screwed tightly to the new hole, and the toilet drain piping can be run underneath the floor to the new flange. This is a truly professional job. It now appears that the flange is built right into the new floor and it’s locked in place. Toilet flanges should sit level or right on top of a finished floor for a good seal. Having the flange too deep in the floor can put you in deep trouble. Keep Reading

The decision to keep the hardwood wasn’t haphazard. With all the humidity & water splashes, I know that hardwood flooring sounds about as smart as carpet in a bathroom. But after some research, I found that it was possible to use hardwood if it was sealed thoroughly with marine varnish – the stuff that they use to protect the wood on boats. It’s a product that’s made to stand up to the constant abuse of salt water & UV rays. I was sold. We knew that refinishing the floor would be a huge job (though I don’t think we truly understood what we had gotten ourselves into!). And being the only bathroom in our house, we needed to keep the toilet functioning as long as possible – which meant that we decided to rip out everything up unto the toilet & get that area to an almost-finished state before taking out the toilet & completing the rest of the floor.

TR Building & Remodeling Inc. While wood is a durable choice for bathroom floors, it’s also fantastic on the ceiling. It adds a sense of natural warmth in a space where, well, most of us are au naturel. Yes, this ceiling is above a shower. You can imagine the potential moisture problems. I always recommend using a fan in the bathroom, but adding a second barrier between the steam rising from the shower and what’s behind the ceiling might be smart here. I recommend sealing the wood surface with boiled linseed oil and/or urethane. I also recommend sheeting the ceiling joists with 15-pound tar paper (the black paper you see under roof shingles) before installing the wood. Tar paper is water resistant and will keep moisture that does make it through the ceiling (not much, if any) inside the room. The moisture will evaporate back into the room and dry with the rest of the air, especially if you’re using planks instead of a tongue and groove material.
