Custom shower tray choices in GTA


I am looking at custom sized shower tray options for a second floor bathroom.

The best option I have seen so far is the cultured marble, for which I've found two manufacturers in the Toronto area.

In the first case the product looks quite good but the flanges on the sides of the tray (the bits that go up the side of the wall) are attached to the base with screws and then the edge joins are sealed with silicone. This is the case on all 4 edges of the tray. I worry that this will eventually leak, particularly as it is a second floor bathroom.

In the second case, the product doesn't look as good, the textured finish is really unattractive, but the flanges on the side are chemically bonded to the base. It seems that this is more water-tight, but the surface doesn't look very good. Both options were about $1000.

I'm struggling to find many other options! Does anyone know of other custom-sized tray manufacturers in the Toronto area? I have only found one custom acrylic tray manufacturer, which gave me a quote for $1700!

Any info or suggestions would be really appreciated!!
