HI All
Hope someone can help on this, we moved into a new property just over 4 years ago and within a month had water coming through the ceiling from the en-suite. (quality workmanship!) Various fixes occurred and it looks like the one put in place just stemmed the fault as we have the same issue.

Any advice grateful
cheers

why the f**k are MR boards getting skimmed?

they are not made to be skimmed onto, you take away the whole point of them being moisture resistant if you do, they are designed to be tiled straight onto like tile backers and aqua panels.

wtf goes off on these new builds nowadays does anyone know what the fk they are doing?
