I am getting ready to install marble tile in my bathroom (over a bare concrete slab).

When I lay the marble next to my toilet flange, they are flush (so to speak).

I figure that after the thinset, the flange will be about 1/8" below the tile.

Is this as bad as I think it is?

I've seen wax rings with plastic flanges imbeded in them.
Could I use one of those instead of a plain wax ring?

If I need to have the flange raised, is there a spacer?
Maybe a ring that can be PVC glued to the flange?

The last thing I want to do is replace the flange.
It doesn't look like a do-it-yourself project.

Hi Brian, what you want is a closet flange extension, these can be readily obtained at your local hardware store. They are specifically made for this kind of situation where your flooring has raised. Good luck!
