The system floor heating the has pretty much taken over in my area is www.nuheat.com
You can get the mats in standard sizes or you can order custom sizes.

I normally let the G.C. or tile contractor purchase the floor heating systems. The reason for this is liability. If this heating system fails not only am I buying a new heating system but I also get to buy a very expensive floor. I just have my guys run a circuit to the thermostat and then run a 1/2" conduit from the thermostat box to the floor so the non heating leads can be run up after drywall. At trim out we set the thermostat.

Ihave Nuheat in my bathroom and have installed it in several others. They offer a 25 year warranty. I would buy it myself so I can get the profit. From my experience customer service is great. For one job I sent in the layout and dimensions of the bath and they designed a system. There are others but this seems to be the easiest to deal with as it comes pretty musch assembled. Other types you get a spool of wire and clips and a pain in the behind.

Hello all....I know I am a little slow with this thread, as I have been away for a while.

As an alternative, I have had excellent results using the EasyHeat systems. I even installed one in my own house.

Bye for now.
