Question

Toilet flange 3/8" below surrounding tile


My tile setter had to elevate the tiles around the toilet hole in order to make up for some unevennesses. As a result, the toilet flange is approx. 3/8" below the surrounding tile. Can that be compensated for using extra wax ring or will it even be a problem at all?

Curious: What sort of floor did you have before?
What did your tile setter say about the issue?

I had to sister the beams because they were uneven and in a real bad shape. but you always have imperfections -- I set 3/4" subfloor, then 1/2" plywood, then 1/4" hardibacker. wood frames shift around. he didn't say much

You will be fine with the extra thick wax ring.

that should have been taken care of ...before tile was finished ,,flange needed to be raised....well as stated double wax or extra thick will work..its certianly is not right....should use a flange extension....ben sr
