The only thing I would change is the shower head. They need to make the head be able to angle down more or make the pipe coming out of the wall longer. When the water is on it shoots toward the glass door.

can't say enough good about Home Depot Customer service
the product is, after lengthy searching, the best available not least because it is answers the unknowable question for DIYers "what about the doors" when replacing a shower.
Sterling seems to have it together on quality and definitely on design. The shower arrived, three packages in a serious wooden crate. None the less the lower outside corners on both wall panels had small cracks that went through the walls. Didn't happen in shipping, packaging was pristine and heavy duty.
Was ready to live
... read more with it if it meant another two week wait but HD's customer service rep. got the vendor on the phone Tuesday AM and had two new wall panels scheduled to ship Friday
A confusing email Thursday AM put what I thought was a solution in doubt. Another conversation with HD cust ser rep and his several phone calls later he had good news and better news, the distributor got the panels that day, they had shipped and I got a tracking number.
Home Depot has it together when it comes to customer service though their current telephone survey provider isn't doing them any favors—terrible technology, bad voice recognition and no key pad option to grade outcomes.

Overall good product service was lacking from hd
Clean inexpensive alternative to building a tile shower
Bought this for a new bathroom. Installation was straight forward with no problems. The quality was excellent and I look forward to taking my first shower. My only gripe is Home Depot will not honor my veterans discount like Lowes.

Well Designed Shower Stall
This shower stall is a great size for a small bathroom. It is easy to install and good-looking; the material is strong and sturdy. The shower stall has plenty of shelf space, and the two footrests are an added bonus. Nice non-slip surface on the bottom.

The shower is beautiful however I didn't notice three hairline cracks until the middle of installation & felt it was too late to rip everything out so I decided to live with the cracks. Future buyers: check the very top and bottom of the panels closely as that is where the cracks were on mine.
I did look over the boxed shower as it was loaded on my pickup but did not totally take it out of the box so did not notice the cracks.
The shower unit it self was very easy to install, just snapped the pieces in and it's together. The hard part was the re-plumbing of the drains, the old tub had a center side drain ( garden tub) and this new shower has a center one, it was just moving the pipes around floor studs and patching old holes to make room for a new drain. Now it's in and works beautiful.Very easy to enter and exit since we are getting older. Excellent purchase for us.

The product design and the size is excellent.
This shower was easy to install, but do to the size you need two people to handle it, both moving and installing.
I installed this as a bath redo and replaced a garden tub. The directions for installation was complete and easy to understand.

Look at a lot of shower stalls this is the best for the money
For the money this is the best couldn't get a one peice shower stall in the room so the was the best chose would recommend this to anyone
I have installed two of these units and couldn't be happier. The fact that it comes with a sliding glass door that fits PERFECTLY to the stall is worth a lot. Trying to match a shower with a door can be frustrating and require a lot of silicone...You will need to provide your own trim(I use door trim that is made from pvc) to conceal the edges. Once the plumbing is done, this unit takes less than half a day to install!!

Great value, easy to install
Perfect fit, very little modification to install. Was a little unsure when it first arrived but the instructions were very well written and went together great.

Great but one frustrating feature
I liked how this product is a complete kit so there is no guessing about matching up doors, walls, and base. It all fits together well and looks fantastic.
I installed it in an old house and found the walls were not square but some shims made it all install well. I didn't get the version with built-in backers for grab bars. I figured I could take care of that myself. The curved rear wall caused some head scratching but I was able to mount 2 2x4s across the studs and install a grab bar
... read more vertically in the middle. That should work well.
The one problem we have is that the doors have handles on one side only. So unless you can grab an edge of the glass or get enough friction with your fingers pushing on the glass, it's basically impossible to open a door from one side (say outside) and close that same door from the other side (say inside). We ended up buying vacuum handles for each door so our elderly parents can make them work. Unfortunately those are ugly compared to the design of the door.
I asked Sterling about this and their response was a cop-out, in my opinion. They said that the doors only have handles on one side so they can slide completely past each other, so that the doors can be positioned the right way so that water does not spray out between them. I replied pointing out that the positioning only has to be done once, at installation, and then they no longer need to slide completely past each other. In fact it's better to prevent that so that a guest without proper training doesn't accidentally position them wrong. I got no response to that reply so I've concluded that they designed it to look great rather than making them more functional.
We're still happy with the shower unit, just disappointed in that one feature. But if I was doing this again I would look for another option.
Easy in stall,plenty of room ,sturdy well built,shelves and wood backers for handrails and grab bars.

Note to purchaser
This is a well built product, there were some shipping problems but nothing we couldn't work around. The purchaser of this product should understand that this is primarily for installation in a home prior to completion, very difficult to fit in a finished bath (not impossible but VERY time consuming).

This is what we were looking for.
There were installation problems: carpenter cracked the base and replaced it then plumber cracked the back panel and replaced it. It seems some of the rough edges need to be filed in order to have the correct fit.
I bought 9 of these 4 foot showers and they're all white
Too bad the other reviewer had a problem with the fiberglass. I got 9 of these units for my apartment building and they have held up well. They are all white. Cleaning instructions encourage not using abrasive cleaners. Maybe becuase my tenants dont' clean so much they stayed white and didn't abrade the gelcoat the fiberglass is still white? I like the fiberglass its heavy and ruggeded. Something that goes well in a commercial apartment, but I'd put it in my house if I needed one.
They are 10
... read more years old now and look good.
I do have a complaint but it would be the same with any shower install.. use blue board in the shower and caulk well . I'm always caulking around the top of the shower now. I'm looking at going wiht a one piece design - dome.. There's quite a bit up charge but I'm hoping it will pay for itself in reduced maintenaince and better appearance. Come back in 10 years to find out. :)

The product was great.
This is just what we we looking for at a price that was a good value. It is well built and should serve us for many years. My wife loved the dual corner seats... It makes shaving her legs a lot easier!

Great value ! Great Store #2407. (for pickup option).
This shower was a great purchase despite some negative reviews. The Accord shower arrived by truck and the gentlemen carried it right into my home. Because of some delays, we finally opened the packaging and the shower was intact, no damage and just what I ordered. Having never done this before, it wasn't hard to put in but this was going into a new alcove that we built first. The measurements were exactly what was posted and the directions were fine. I would definitely purchase this product again.

I bought this to install for my mother and she loves it. It seems to be very well made. I had it installed
so not sure about the ease of it but the plumbers made the remark that it was the best shower they
have seen that snaps together.
