My contractor installed a shower niche (commercial one, aluminum or stainless) but tells me that having it holding just by the silicone caulking is enough.
I'm concern that over time, since it doesn't fit so snuggly, it will move and water will seep in. Especially from the top.
It fits nicely against the side of the enclosure, but there is some space allowing it to jiggle around a bit. What would be the correct way to secure it in place and be sure that water doesn't get in the wall?
Is there some stronger adhesive than silicone I could use which would keep water out? The border is about a quater inch thick. The niche sits on the shower pane and sticks out by about a quarter inch too.
