Old vs new, budget vs premium. Townhouse and apartment living comes in a wide range of shapes and forms. But what they all have in common is the proximity to the neighbours. Which makes it even more important to be picky about the layout and building materials. This is something we see first-hand when Warmup is contracted for bathroom waterproofing and wet room design
in apartments and townhouses. We often work on apartment blocks and townhouse complexes around the country – in Auckland, Hamilton, Christchurch, Queenstown and Wellington. Both insulation and waterproofing in wet areas are some of the most important things in townhouse and apartment design, for obvious reasons.
For floor insulation, the Warmup specialists
prefer to use Marmox insulation boards
in the bathroom, laundry, kitchen, scullery, and entry areas. With the building environment constantly innovating, Marmox insulation boards
are an innovative and eco-friendly product compared to other products in the market. That’s because Marmox insulation boards are high-quality insulation board that creates a thermal barrier, insuring all energy is directed upward. What you as the apartment owner will notice most is a cutback in heat-up time and a reduction in running cost. At the same time, the same Marmox insulation boards have some acoustic properties and may help reduce footfall noise.
Wet areas in apartments and townhouses
Because waterproofing is not something you want to mess with, only the best materials are used in Warmup installed townhouse and apartment bathroom and wet area. After all, you don’t want to get into trouble with water ingress. Warmup Waterproofed Shower Systems
are considered a premium option for apartment buildings because of their reliability and low maintenance. Unlike plasterboard, Marmox products
are completely waterproof. They won’t rot, making them a very hygienic choice. For peace of mind, we use modern building products such as Ardex waterproofing membrane in addition to the high-quality Marmox products. As for the bathroom, nothing says class, style and comfort like a tiled shower. Warmup installers
use Marmox shower bases
for their lightweight and superior performance compared to sand and cement. Combined with the Marmox shower niches
and Tranquillity drains,
the townhouse and apartments Warmup installers are contracted to combine quality performance with well thought out functionality. To top it off, Warmup apartment bathrooms often feature Tranquillity bathroom accessories such as heated towel rails, hooks, and paper holders.
Townhouse and apartment living usually also means making the most of a smaller space. With that in mind, it’s a priority to be clever with design and functionality. Underfloor heating in bathrooms
, bedrooms and lounge is one way that can be accomplished. Hide your heating from everyone and enjoy a quiet and even heat distribution. Control it with a quality Warmup thermostat
