Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KandJJ Inexpensive material but nice looking, good value
The enclosure is a one piece, ideally you need 2 people to install. My husband did most of the installing but needed help when positioning. Make sure you buy enough liquid nails and a trowel. Also handy are several pieces of wood and curtain rods to let it cured in place.
The shelving is very weak. We filled them before installing the enclosure with foam. Make sure you use little foam as it expands and the shelving can lose its shape.
Overall we are happy with the enclosure, it does what it is supposed to, looks nice, and I hope with the foam in the shelving parts to avoid breakage from use.
Be sure to check the enclosure in the store as the first one was broken but the home depot staff was helpful in ordering a new one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by oldprospector Good replacement without seams!!
Item is as described. I wanted a one piece surround to avoid seams. In doing so feel i added a smallbit to installation but effort was worth results. Due to it being one piece suggest two people help put up after checking measurements. It can be trimmed a bit but always check before making holes for shower/tub valves etc. In putting up needed extra planing to hold back wall in place for setting of adhesive. I used 2 x 4 grid. Might suggest small piece of plywood to give a firm flat surface across it. I did take suggestion and used foam in shelf space for added support like other reviews. While I was not expecting a thick piece of surround like on more expensive models this one was ok. Because of one piece construction check alignment carefully before putting hole in it or attaching to wall. I was redoing entire bathroom and used wood to go around outside molding of surround. For price was a good product. I used tin and rough board to finish out trim work.

I ordered 2 on line, one showed up broken. It is very thin material so you need a good solid wall behind it as u should with and wall set. This does not require caulk vertically in the corners just between the wall and tub. Therefore i prefer the one piece but it takes 2 people to install it. I would use it again in the right application. I am in the plumbing business and have worked with many brands and styles over the past 30 years.

This is a good product if you want a seamless tub surround. It can be difficult to cut out the holes for the handle and spout, etc. but that is really the most time consuming. My project took me 9 bottles of adhesive. You'll want to make sure and have some extra just in case. The rest is really by the instructions. Be careful when handling before install so that you don't crack. Also, I added spray foam in the shelving and they are sturdier now. Be careful not to overfill because then the shelf will round out and be difficult to use.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LoriTheAuthor Terrible But We Made It Work
I had to pick this thing up at the Home Depot three times before I got one that wasn't damaged. It is VERY floppy and difficult to handle when installing. You definitely need two people. Also, the built-in soap dishes are not sturdy...I filled mine with foam insulation before installation to firm them up. Overall, we got it in and it looks fine, but next time I'll spend more for a better one. Those hours wasted are ones I'll never get back.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by HaHa One piece bathtub wall
It is thinner than I would like. I wish I had gone with a more durable, thicker wall. It serves it's purpose, but it could be thicker. I do like the features such as shelves and washcloth racks within the tub wall.
