Are you thinking of installing new tile on your bathroom floor? If so, don't forget about how this will affect your toilet flange. Floor tile tends to raise the floor level and can leave the flange right at, or slightly below, floor level. Why does this matter? If the toilet flange is not above floor level there is a good possibility that the toilet will leak, either right away or in the near future.
One of the first things I ask when I get called to fix a leak at the base of a toilet is whether the bathroom has been recently tiled. Quite often the answer is yes.
Fortunately there is a very easy way to avoid this problem. A toilet flange extension can be installed to bring the flange up to the right height. It only takes a few minutes but it can save you the headache of a leak on your new tile floor.
