    Our enclosure has a hole in the lower corner about the size of a quater. The fiberglass was week and pushed through, hole has been covered with tape to keep water out. Can this be repaired?

    thanks

    I would say yes.
    Look in the Yellow Pages under tub repair.
    They can fix almost any size hole in fiberglass.

    Well after checking the Yellow Pages I only found one ad that showed to repair fiberglass, gave them a call and he came out yesterday and made it all good again. I can't even tell there was a repair done! I had talked to several people locally that said it would have to be replaced and was about to do just that. $110. versus close to 2K with a tile job, a new enclosure would not fit do to size restrictions of doorway.
