Here at JW McDonald Building Services Ltd we are well established in installing kitchens & bathrooms. We offer to all our clients a transparent service from start to finish and we like our client to feel they are in control of their kitchen & bathroom installation budgets.

As a company we offer two different services, one is a supply and fit service and other is a labour only service for those who like to choose their own materials.

The bath & shower room installation we have just completed is based in off Lee High road SE13, which is near Lewisham SE13 or near Blackheath SE12 / SE3.

This bathroom remodelling job has been split into 2 jobs because it has a separate toilet and bathroom. In some instances, we would knock the wall down to make it one large bathroom or shower room but, in this property, they wanted to keep it as separate rooms

The job was an interesting bathroom remodelling job because they no longer wanted a bathroom and was more interested in having a shower room for convenience.

Shower rooms or walk in showers are becoming more common for a quick fast pace life

The separate toilet means that if some body needs a shower toilet can still be used always

When installing a new shower room or remodelling an old bathroom we normally must update the electrics to bring everything in line with NIC regulation and safety. We always check that the electrical or wiring for a bathroom is a priority as electric and water don’t mix. We always issue a NIC certificate for all our work when complete a bathroom or shower room installation.

The bob we completed off Lee High Road SE13 we installed a new lighting ring for the bathroom and toilet. We also installed IP65 shower proof lights extractor fan and new switches

The boiler is an old gravity fed system, so we are installed new pump for the cylinder that gave them mains pressure hot water. We were able to give them mains cold water because the mains water feed was in the loft above the bathroom

The shower room-remodelling job consisted of the client buying their own materials and we will install them. We offer the client advice on what materials to buy and offer them our great company discounts on tile from Topps Tiles.

Here is an outline of the materials needed for this shower room below:


  • Buy and install a new shower pump
  • Install new pipe work
  • Install new IP65 LED lights
  • Install new toilet, small wash basin
  • Complete tiled shower room
