Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by RoyFR instalation of the durawall bath tur surround
the panels are too thin and flimsy. giving them a tendency to sag while trying to install, the adhesive that was recommended was not the best,( it took to long for the panels to hold. The caulk did not
adhere to the shinny surface surfaces, I called the company and they told me to use sand paper to rough up the caulk surface that was to be caulked. It was not as easy as the one I had used a couple of years earlier,

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by victorv4 Great product for custom size shower enclosures
When it was time to repair tub shower walls in my bathroom, I spent some time looking at quite a few tub surround products that would fit my custom size tub/shower area. I came across the Durawall five piece product, and saw comments that indicated it could be sized to fit. The unit went up without any complications, and was relatively simple to size the pieces to fit just right, easily accommodating the extra length on the side wall. The only slight downside from my perspective is that as I was going for a sheer finish look to the surround, it was somewhat difficult to apply the silicone caulking around the edges of the product such that it adheres well with wear given that the surface of the wall unit is made not to have things stick to it, and the product itself is quite thin. Overall, I'm quite satisifed with the product, and the value.

Not a very good product. Easily cracked and very flimsy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TBone Great for non-standard size tubs
My old cast iron tub is 66" long and this was the only wall kit I could find for a reasonable price. Quality is pretty good, not heavy duty but don't really need it to be. Easy to cut with a utility knife, glued into place without any headaches, and the 6 shelves are a great bonus. Overall, I am EXTREMELY happy with the fit and finish of this product. I highly recommend it!

THIS WORKED VERY WELL IN MY OLD BATHROOM. MY TUB IS AN OLD OVERSIZED TUB, GREAT FOR SOAKING. I SEARCHED FOR WEEKS AND THIS WAS THE ONLY TUB SURROUND I COULD FIND THAT WOULD WORK AND WAS AFFORDABLE. IT CERTAINLY LOOKS SOOOO MUCH BETTER THAN WHAT I HAD. MY HOUSE WAS BUILT IN 1950 WITH SAWMILL LUMBER SO NOTHING IS SQUARE. WE WERE ABLE TO CUT THIS TO FIT AND IT LOOKS GREAT!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Chris OK, difficult to order, install straightforward, pretty flimsy
The Durawall 5 piece is OK. This is definitely a case where you get what you pay for. The panels are flimsy, they had a few small and intermittently spaced marks on them (I assume from packaging?). They install pretty easily. The corners took a lot of glue and I would suggest a quick grab type glue as they wanted to slide out of place. They did improve the appearance of our old and dingy bathtub space. We ordered this product because our bathtub space is oversized and conventional, in stock surrounds wouldn't work.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Edward Not bad for the cost
This was actually quite easy to install as an amateur. It's very thin, cuts easily with a razor knife, but rather cheap. It works well for my basement bathroom with a Whirlpool tub, which has a window in it. They should sell this in the store instead of just online.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mcdebbie Shower repairs
We purchased the product to use in the 80 migrant houses we maintain that have uneven walls. The corner units are the best feature and can be used to hide any mess ups. However, the material is not as thick as the FRP white pebbled wall board. In addition, this is only available through the internet so it has to be special ordered. Overall, it wasn't as beneficial to us and we will go back to the FRP wallboard which is in stock when needed.
