Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MBMadigan The most elegant bath enclosure on the market (IMHO)
I am looking to make my master bath a serene oasis. I love the look of stone, but I hate the maintenance in a bathtub surround. After much research, I fell in love with particular tub enclosure...it boasts 4 deep (but unobtrusive) shelves, as well as a wider (but shallower) one below the design element in the center panel. The big draw to this is the "crown" application at the top of the panels. It keeps the panels from looking so "plastic"! The gauge of the PVC is substantial and it seemed pretty easy to install by my contractor. I am very thrilled!
On another note, this may be more suited for homes with taller tubs. Because our tub is of standard height, the spout for the shower comes thru the crown element. An escutcheon might not sit on the hole properly. It is on the buyer to have this measure BEFORE you order this item!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JustDave A good value, but requires some extra work to get it right
I am very picky about how things should be done. This surround has a nice sophisticated look and is less expensive than installing tile with similar features. We really like the 5 shelves it offers and the style matches the Kholer deep soaking tub almost perfectly.
But in my opinion, for this surround to be installed correctly a lot of supports need to be built behind it using construction adhesive to hold it in place so that the walls of the surround do not flex and boom when bumped. If you hire a contractor to install this surround, let them know if you want it installed that way ahead of time.

Our tub and surround items both arrived in perfect condition. The instructions for the Tub Surround are a bit sketchy in that they lack detail. They tell you to use Adhesive and Sealant but don't suggest what is actually safe to use without damaging the finish. We wouldn't have worried so much about it except that they make a big deal about plumber's putty causing damage so it makes you worry about everything else. No amount of glue would actually adhere the skirt support to the inside of the skirt so that was a worry as well.
The delivery was a joke. Seko was the delivery company and they sent tracking emails with links that didn't work, called to say they were coming and didn't show up, came when no one was there and didn't leave the merchandise, even though we told them it was ok and where to leave it. The list was endless.... it was a full week before they finally showed up and only because I got on the phone with them and told them they HAD to deliver instead of making us wait until the following week which is what they tried to do.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hilux Looks nice
mine was missing the back panel support. It is just a board for the rear panel to glue to. I called tech support but they couldn't any specs on it and they couldn't send me one. I just used a piece of 1/2 plywood. It worked great.
I read several reviews that said it was really flimsy. I was very careful to place all extra studs and supports. Mine is very solid. I can lean on any part of it and it doesn't move at all.

So far, we love our new Bathtub wall set. My boyfriend installed ours a few weeks ago by himself. So far so good. Installation was a little tricky but we made it work. We have a window over our tub so we had to cut out the window portion.....would not recommend this product if you have a window since it has the decortive trim at the top. My boyfriend had to make end caps where it was open on the trim area. Also, when cutting the window portion the plastic molded back to itsef so it was very hard to cut. Our bathroom isn't square so the right side is off just a little bit. Instead of fighting with it, we chose to live with the little difference in height between the pieces. This product made our bathroom brighter and very elegant looking. We love it. We also installed shower doors with our so the light from the window can come through. Would definitely recommend this product!
