building a wetroom finished with Microcement
Hi guys.

So, I've been asked to do a bathroom for a customer but I'm not sure the best way to go about it.

It's an ensuite in an old georgian house, 1st floor. I went to see the job a few weeks ago but could actually get into the room as it was full of building materials (they're renovating the place piecemeal really)

The room is 3.1m x 1.2m. It currently has a bathroom suite in it. What the customer wants is a wetroom (shower one end, wall mounted double basin, back to wall toilet, etc.). However, it is not getting tiled. They want to use a product called Microcement on the walls AND floor to give a polished concrete look to the whole place. The customer has spoke to the supplier in Ireland and they've said its completely waterproof and will be fine for the floor too (as part of an already tanked wetroom, etc.)

So, I'm a builder who normally preps a wetroom for my tiler and I'd usually follow a plan like this:
wetroom former. 24mm at the edge supported on ply between joists, etc.
18mm ply on rest of the floor. 6mm marmox board on that to meet former.
All joints taped, followed by tanking solution.

But I'd do all that ready for tiling. Has anyone used this Microcement or anyone got any practical advice to approaching this job?

This is the stuff:
Microcement Wall and Floor Kit, Beton cire, Micro cement, Micro screed - https://www.imperaitalia.com/product/microcement-floor-wall-kit/

Many thanks!
Adam
