Can I install hardwood floor in bathroom, and how can I raise the toilet to accommodate the thicker floor?
Aug 31st, 2008 by admin
I am considering installing a real hardwood floor in a small (half bath) because it is directly off a main hall where we will be puting hardwood. Installing the hardwood floor would result in raising the toilet about half an inch. Will this pose a problem? or can I get some kind of thicker wax ring and a set of longer floor bolts?????
You should NOT install more than one wax ring. You are asking for a problem in the future. Best case is having the toilet flange on TOP of the finish floor. Sometimes you can remove a flange and replace it correctly. If you cannot rework it and the space is greater than one wax ring you should use a “Flange Extender” see this link [it involve floor tile but the principles are the same]: http://www.johnbridge.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=40603
