Materials used in your bath or shower should stand up to moisture

The term “surround” is an appropriate way to describe the wall sections that enclose a bathtub or shower. These surrounding walls have a job description that goes far beyond what we expect from standard walls. A bathtub or shower surround has to stand up to soaking conditions day after day, without allowing moisture to penetrate into wall cavities or mold to grow on wall surfaces. Tub and shower surrounds also typically contain recesses and/or shelves where soap and shampoo can be stored.

Installing Tiled Shower Surround

Beautiful yet impractical. Tile showers look nice, but can be expensive to install and are easily damaged by things like mildew and cracks.

Tile surrounds can be beautiful but are expensive and easily damaged

A tile tub or shower surround has come to signify high quality as well as high cost. Because you have the opportunity to select the tile colors, sizes and patterns that suit your fancy, it's possible to create a one-of-a-kind composition when your bath or shower surround is built.

For many homeowners, this design opportunity is worth the premium price that tile contractors usually charge for this work.

Tile surrounds for bathtubs and showers aren't without their problems, however. For one thing, the grout joints between tiles can crack and allow water to penetrate and accumulate behind the tile. Even grout that isn't cracked will still absorb a certain amount of moisture, which increases the likelihood that mold spores will take hold on the surround surface. Black stains on a tile surround are telltale signs of mold. Water that makes its way behind tiles can cause some tiles to work loose and even fall out of place.

Panel-type surrounds offer excellent value

These days, many homeowners prefer the exceptional durability and common-sense utility you get with panel-type surrounds for bathtubs and shower stalls. Unlike a tiled surround, which is made from hundreds of individual tiles, a panel-type surround is made up of no more than several large wall panels that are designed to overlap and (in some cases) interlock, forming a near-seamless surface.

With panel-type surrounds, there are no grout joints to crack, admit water and support mold growth. Instead you have thick, durable surround panels that direct water down toward the drain. The bottom edge of each panel overlaps the wall flange where the top edge of the shower base or bathtub is secured to the wall.

Panel-type tub and shower surrounds can be made from acrylic, fiberglass, plastic or thin solid-surface material. Surrounds are available to match common tub and shower stall sizes, in a limited selection of colors and styles (including faux tile). Some surrounds are designed specifically to go with a particular model of bathtub or shower base, while others are easily adapted to tubs and shower bases made by other manufacturers. Most surrounds have built-in features like soap dishes, shelves and grab bars.

The popularity of panel-type surrounds is easy to understand. They perform better than tiled surround walls at preventing moisture damage around tubs and showers. They can be installed more quickly and more affordably than tile. If your tub or shower already has a tiled surround that is not in good shape, it may not be necessary to rip out the old tile in order to install a panel-type surround. Some panel-type surrounds are designed to be installed directly over old tile walls –another time- and cost-saving feature.
