Need recommendations on sealing window inside shower - see pics

2 months ago


I am seeking input on the precautions to prevent water seepage around the window area in the shower. (See pics). Welcome feedback from those with similar experiences.

The window is inoperable. The contractor will waterproof the shower area, including the area around the window, followed by tiling. He suggests using a single quartz bar without any seams as the window sill and plans to seal it directly to the window glass at a sloping angle so splashed water drains towards the shower instead of pooling on the sill.

Are these measures enough? Should we be considering anything else or doing things differently? It's the only window in the bathroom, and we do not want to take it out. (It's an external window that faces the backyard).
