Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by woodbear Nice Surround
Ordered on line and product shipped for free to my local Home Depot store. Pick up was easy and I was able to inspect the carton before leaving the store. No damage to carton was noted. Doubt that would have been the case with UPS, FedEx or other delivery company. This is by far the nicest quality tub surround I have installed. The walls are quite thick but still easy to handle. I bought several tubes of the very best GE Silicone adhesive, which I applied generously, to make sure adhesion would be good. Installation was quite simple, but fabricating all the necessary bracing to hold everything in place while the adhesive dries took some time and additional money. Overall, a very nice quality surround at a reasonable price point. Note you must have computer access to download the installation instructions.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by B122 2nd purchase of the Tub surround
Follow the instructions to a T. Especially the bracing which seems excessive but worth every 2x4 you need. Save them for the next install and they worked. The only negative was I ordered the first one on 3/3/2016 at a total cost of 283.26. The second order was placed on 4/12/2016 and the total cost was 327.28. A difference of 44.02 in a little over a month.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Snowbird63 great value
After waiting for over a month for another bath surround (different company) and was delivered damaged, we were told there were three in store. we excitedly checked each one and all were either damaged or had wrong depth side walls. we left that store and checked on line at Home Depot. There was one just right size and it came in within week in perfect condition. It was easy to install and feels solid, even shelves are quite solid. Very pleased with it.

This surround was pretty easy to install, it was a pain to cut the holes for the faucet and knob, but that is to be expected. I have a very narrow stairway that turns, so the 5 piece set was the obly option for getting it up the stairs to the bedroom and it fit perfectly. It is easy to keep clean and the shelves are perfect for shampoo, conditioner, and soap bottles.I highly recommend this surround.

Great Three Piece Tub Surround. Looks Very Well When Done. Used Extra Glue To Make Sure It would Stay put.. Makes the bathroom Really Shine.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KJ Better than most
This was definitely a better surround than those found in-stock at the stores.
It was a much thicker material, and even though it had to be shipped to the store, everything arrived without any damage.
My only reason for not giving it 5 stars, is because they no longer provide the 100% silicone to use as the adhesive. (They do provide 1 color-match tube to use as a seam sealant.)
You now need to provide the adhesive silicone yourself.
I also used much more silicone than what they recommended...just to be sure that it has very good adhesion.
It's been installed for about 1 month now, and looks great!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by suzieq pleasantly surprised!
Tub surround wall material is of a very good quality, not as thin as I expected. Very good product for the price.
Love the look.
We have a 40+ year old house, and after removing all the old tile, mortar and wire backing, we installed it ourselves over prepared cement board walls with no mishaps. Easy to cut and trim, if necessary.
No instructions or adhesive included. Customer Service at Swan was very helpful and informative. Instructions can be seen on line either in the manufacturer or Home Depot link. Customer Service informed me that they are no longer including the silicone adhesive in newer kits. so do plan on purchasing something at Home Depot separately, The silicone caulk and foam tape were included and very useful.

It was easy to install, looks good and water just runs down into tub, don't have to worry about anything like small pieces coming down like with tile
