Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JoAnn This shower is awesome
We replaced a 36" corner shower. We love our new shower. The overall structure is top notch. No flimsy walls to deal with. Instructions were very easy to follow. And the best part very little caulking around the shower doors and that's it. We installed this on Saturday and Sunday, not full days. I would recommend if a replacement shower that if second floor to make sure the back wall can make it up the stairs. We had to cut a hole in the ceiling to get it up, we have an old home. But it was well worth it. The shower is huge with plenty of room. We also purchased a Kohler rain shower head.Love it. The seat actually can be in or out of the shower. Very nice surprise. This is great for cleaning. The shower doors had a scratch on each one but Home Depot sent replacements right away. Excellent customer service. I expect nothing else from Home Depot.
Love this shower

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TomF 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 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ounowho 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by vootie Great product, easy to install!!
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!!
