Looked at a shower room last night, walls and floor. The fella wants to tile the whole thing and then fit the showertray on top of the tiles. Would this be a problem? Never seen it done before so not sure whether to advise him to get the tray in first or not.
There is another thread current at the moment with someone wanting to tile the floor first and put the tray on top.
My only concerns are what type of tray is it, stone resin, foam or acrylic capped or acrylic on legs? What method of fixing the tray? If its sand cement then will it stick to the tiles? The stone resin ones are ok as they are pretty much held in place by their on weight but these lightweight foam ones can move all over the place.
More his wife's thinking, not sure where she's coming from though. Definately going to request the tray to be in first then. Last thing I want is leaks coming back to my name, especially as it's a new customer that hasn't seen my work before.
