    Whats the normal procedure on fixing a shower tray?

    At the moment it's just stud walls?

    Is it the norm to fix shower tray, then fix Hardibacker board, then a trim around shower tray/wall and then tile?

    Many thanks

    I'd fit the hardibacker board 1st, than the shower tray ,otherwise you'd be getting close to the edge of the tray by the time you've added tiles to the board.

    Hardibacker or plasterboard first, can tank the shower area for belt and braces, butt tray up to it and silicone edge to the wall. Tile over the top and finish the tiles to the tray with silicone bead.

    Thanks what's the strip you can buy that seals the shower tray with the wall before you tile?

    Or is silicone good enough?
