Questions & Answers

Will one standard sheet of square tiles fit into the vertical face of the 16 in x 16 in niche?

The picture shows metal edges. May tile be used to wrap the edges?
Asked by: KATHRYN
Thank you for your question the flange edges are normally used for the attachment of the niche to the framing and the durock wood cover them so they are not seen when you tile.

Where can I find ALL of the dimensions on this unit. I have a tricky installation and need to make sure I can fit this in.

How is this insert mounted to the existing wall studs?

How is this insert mounted to the existing wall studs? There isn’t enough information in the product description to know for sure. We have already installed backer board and will need to cut out a space for the recessed shelving. Any ideas?
Asked by: Denise
Hello Denise, thank you for your question regarding our USG Durock Shower System Niche. The Niche is designed to fit between 16" O.C. framing and the flaps overlap the studs and are attached here. The mortar used to apply the tiles to the wall will cover the fastener heads completing the seal. You just need to make the cut out in the Durock allowing the flaps of the Niche to sit flush on the face of the Durock.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Overpriced I used one of these when I was constructing my new shower. To install it I first screwed a few pieces of 2×4 to the studs to support the bottom and get the right horizontal spacing - very straightforward. If you happen to have studs that are 16" apart you probably won't have to put as many pieces in. The next step was to insert the niche into the space and fix it using adhesive/sealant - the recommended product was not available at Lowes or HD so I just used some silicone sealant to secure it. I realised that I could have built my own niche - just need some cement board and wood. In fact, I think anyone with the skills/tool required to install this or building their own shower could build their own niche very easily. Then you can have had the exact shape you want and save money. The price is too simply too high for what you get - if they included the adhesive and corner pieces of waterproof membrane, then the price would be justified.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shower Niche Made EZ The niche was well protected in the shipping package. All instructions needed to install were present in the box. Great time saver if you choose to install a cubby in the shower. Final appearance when tiled is well worth the investment.
