When buying surrounds you need to be aware of actual dimensions and the tub you are using. My issue was my installed Tub had a visible exposure of 32 inches and most surrounds were 30 or 31 inches (they say 32 inches in the description sometimes but are not really 32 inches), this can cause you issues on how you finish or trim the tub area. If the tub is larger than the surround, or the surround is larger than the tub this can cause issues depending on the kind of final appearance you are looking for and the materials you are working with.
In this case it fit my tub almost perfectly and made the finish easier.
The construction of the surround is very strong, the shelves on each end are perfectly sized to allow shampoo bottles and body wash fit and the part I like the most is the center of the back wall is curved away from the person allowing for just a little more clearance for a showering person. I notice this because the in stock surround that I was considering first had the center portion that jutted into the shower space with a little shelf and I did not like that. I am a larger man, I appreciate all the extra space I can get.
If you are looking for a direct to stud surround to fit a 32 inch exposed tub this will be a great selection for you.

the shower surround fits the 32" tubs and installs fairly easily. The curvature of the sides can make the bath faucet mating a little challenging but raising the faucet a few inches makes it fit flush and looks good.

My husband just did our complete bathroom remodel and I am glad we went with the direct to stud option, it just makes for a nicer, finished look. There isn't any nasty caulking to seam the tub and surround together. I would suggest that if you buy this surround you purchase a matching tub (I did) or I am afraid that it just won't work as well or look as good with an older tub. The tub and surround look amazing and I love the high gloss finish on this. To clean, I use scrubbing bubbles and a microfiber cloth. I also suggest that if you purchase, you opt for delivery to your local HD just in case it arrives damaged, they will take care of it. The first two deliveries of this surround arrived damaged and HD took care of everything for me.

This order was shipped to our local Home Depot. When we got it home and opened it we found blemishes on all three sections. Two were due to shipping damage the third was a defect in production. The unit was returned and our account was credited for the purchase amount.

Product came in damaged after being on back ordered for three weeks. No one at Home Depot seemed to be aware of giant hole in the side of unit (possibly from being moved by fork lift). I was the one to bring it to the attention of manager.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by duped unfortunately these walls do not install or fit very well.
good thing my husband is a master carpenter because it still took him over 12 hours to get these walls to fit and work with the tub! He had to rig up a support system and caulk caulk caulk.
