Wooden floor in bathroom

Postby honoroakpark » Wed Sep 05, 2007 12:36 pm

I've recently moved into a new flat with a wooden bathroom floor.

A few months on and now parts of the floor (around the bath) have started to go very slightly rotten.

Is there any way of waterproofing a wooden floor?

Or would the best thing be to tile over the wood? If so, can someone please recommend the best way to do this?

Polyurathane varvish will seal it , if you tile over you will probably need to ply over it use 18mm if you can screwed at 150mm centres and use a flexible adhesive.
