  1. Thanks for the advice everyone. I have decided that it's best doing right, once. I don't think I could stand the idea of patching it over only to discover problems further down the line. We have taken out the side panels and removed part of the galley, so we can get the bulkhead out tommorow. The bottom edge is totally crumbling to touch, so the right call. As it turns out the chipboard of some of the kitchen units is weetabix as well. That's the pushed forwards the galley upgrade project then... Onwards!
  2. Hello everyone! First time posting, although I have been reading the wealth of knowledge on this forum for some time. We are mid bathroom refit. New toilet, wash basin, washing machine and calorifier have been fitted / plumbed. And a whale gulper has gone in. Now the shower, we hoped it would be simple, alas the previous owners tiled straight onto the ply with no sealant onto the substrate. Also with standard tile adhesive not silicon, so it has cracked and leaked very badly onto the panels behind. We have a new stone resin tray and PVC shower walls ready to fit. My plan was to properly tank the bathroom with a Mapei Waterproofing kit before fitting these, although not entirely necessary. But now we need to deal with the state of the wood. How bad does it actually look? - I am no wood expert What's the best approach? Let it dry out and treat with some type of wood preserver? Rip it all out and start again (not a huge fan of this as it will delay things massively. The rear wall is the bulkhead into the kitchen / oven splashback) I was ready to sand it all off and start tanking tommorow and then to panel the next day. Should we hold off from this plan? Thank you!
