Had to install this product in a somewhat rough and out of plumb and level situation. The material was ridged enough to bridge small gaps and the overlapping corners allowed for some adjustment. Doesn't really needed full adhesive coverage to adhere well. Be sure to do a preliminary dry fit. Beware of rough shipping.

this product was very easy to install. quality seems to be very good. i would recommend using a 3/16" notched trial to spread the adhesive , brace corners until glue dries.

This was a DIY project. It really was simple and easy to install, and following the instructions was most helpful. I highly recommend doing the trial installation by taping up the panels before final installation. Trimming the back panel for length was easy. You can use a box cutter to make a cut on the front of the panel and it will snap like sheet rock. I also used a jig saw to cut the holes for the plumbing fixtures. Once the glue is generously applied, I found it easier to let the bottom end of the panel rest in place on the tub and then raise it up to the wall. Be careful to hit your marks on the wall but you can slide it a bit if necessary. We really like the way it turned out and I would purchase it again. This was the only product I could find to accommodate our oversize tub.

The tub surround was pretty easy to install even on out of plumb walls. Liquid nails holds well. Silicone caulk is holding well and looks nice. Cuts with utility knive, but might be easier if you heated up the knive 1st. I used a jig saw with a metal blade. Has a nice finish and looks easy to clean. 6 holders give plenty of storage space. If you have a window you will have to bye their window kit as well, it's pricey but worth it for a clean finish to the surround. This surround was the only one big enough to fit my tub 60" wide by 42" deep 58" tall. The corners are about 1/4 inch shorter than the walls. Over all I am very happy with the surround.

The tub surround material is thinner than I expected but appears to be durable. One thing I noticed is an accidental pencil mark was hard to remove so I'm hoping it won't stain easily.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by KyleVT Good Product... Yet still bad experience
Seems to be a good product, but I feel the need to at least warn others about my extremely frustrating experience with it. Since it is an online-only product it took towards two weeks to get to the store (expected.. at least once I could not find a solution I was happy with in the store). I drove nearly two hours round-trip to pick it up (expected). When I opened the box to check for damages the corner shelf pieces came unwrapped and were correct for my order (White). The flat pieces came covered with blue plastic that I unfortunately did not remove until I was dry-fitting it and about to install. The flat pieces are cream (or I guess probably bone based on the order options) colored. Definitely not a mismatch that can be lived with.
Everything with Home Depot was fine throughout the process, though they may want to lean on the vendor to offer some other options to handle incorrect or damaged product scenarios since there are not replacement part options. Either that, or carry this product in stores. I would have picked this product over some of the other in-store options even if I was dealing with a 60" alcove. I previously returned a similar in-store product that was not nearly as good that was a fair amount more expensive. I was only planning to use two sides of it. But it was very poorly designed and looked very cheap once opened.
I have been offered a discount on a return / reorder. But I have not yet decided if I am willing to wait yet another few weeks when the original order put me behind on this project to start. It puts you in a tough spot when dealing with an irregular sized alcove which is the reason I ordered this particular product vs buying something in the store to begin with. Considering using white FRP panel that I was planning to use for the walls above the surround, but the texture is probably too different (would probably need to just return the product and do all FRP.. which also seems like it would look a little rough).
