This guide looks at the options for repairing wet area sheet linings (factory-finished hardboard or fibre-cement panels, painted oil-tempered hardboard sheet and acrylic sheeting) and how to replace them if they cannot be repaired.
Wet area sheet wall linings may be subjected to:
- continual wetting, such as in showers and around baths with a shower over the bath
- splashing, such as the wall area immediately around the rim of a bath, outside an enclosed shower with a shower curtain only or behind basins, laundry tubs and sinks.
