waterproofing shower nook

6869 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  J187
I am going to be tiling my moms shower. I bought a plastic shower pan and am going to be using dens shield for the backer. I am going to be using redgaurd on the seams and screw heads to waterproof it. She would like a nook in it to put shampoo and stuff. Can I just frame this out and use dens shield and then redgaurd to waterproof it? Is there some kind of tape I need to use on the seams with redgaurd, like fiberglass tape? Would I use tape on the outside corners where the nook meets the shower walls? Thanks for any advice with this!

Look into pre-made niches, Noble is one brand. A pre-made will likely save you time and effort, and will have less seams to be concerned with leaking.

If you search for shower niche, soap niche, etc. you will find some options.
