Wet Room Floor Comparison Chart

We believe that the Solidity Wet Room Floor system is the best solution between the competing priorities of appearance, durability, reliability, ease of installation, installed cost and total cost of ownership.  Please see the comparision chart below to demonstrate this.

This work was done in November 2017 using a 1200 x 900mm floor as the basis. We used typical internet buying prices for materials and typical skilled trade person’s rates in the Buckinghamshire/Berkshire area.
