HBB has always been a foam core.

As to liquid v. sheet when speaking of waterproofers, each has it's advantages. Liquids are quick. Sheet membranes offer consistency when it comes to membrane thickness. I'm a sheet guy myself, but I know of lot of folks who favor liquids when it comes to showers. As far as I know, every producer of foam shower floors either applies or recommends a sheet membrane, and of the major companies I'm familiar with that produce liquid waterproofers, most purvey sheet membranes as well.

Jim - I think it was originally expanded foam but then changed. The current board is much stiffer and according to online Laticrete docs “...made with a high-density, waterproof extruded polystyrene core.”

The preformed niches still look to be expanded foam. Don’t know if they’re just using up existing stock in my neck of the woods though.

Thanks, Lou. That more answers my question. The first version was quite flexible but I haven't looked at it in a while.

I have a tub shower alcove conversion to a stand-up shower coming up.

I am going to give your tray and curb a shot. Do you sell wall board foam as well?? Do the trays come in multiple pieces?

Thanks Mike.

We don't sell wall panels. We stay in our lane by making only custom pieces. The shower trays come in as few pieces as possible to save on shipping costs. If you want it sent as a whole piece we can, but shipping would normally be cost prohibitive. A tub replacement at 3x5 is normally cut in half the easy way. We can quote shipping before sending. Just give a call.

For those of you who haven't ordered, The USG shower trays (and some others) are made by assembling 24x24 inch jig saw pieces which are then shaped into a shower tray which you have to re-assemble on site.

Built With Foam trays start as a single piece and are shipped in the biggest pieces Fedex will allow with reasonable shipping expense. We swung an excellent shipping agreement with Fedex
