Fiberglass tub & surround
Posted by Bob Z on March 28, 19101 at 00:20:23:
I have just received a 2piece fiberglasas tub & surround. The unit comes frammed together and is also joined behind the unit at a lip thatsurrounds the tub & surround. I have several questions.

1) Is it possible to install the unit together joining them at the lip that runs behind the unit? Or, should I not worry and just secure them by the exposed perimeter lip to the studs.

2) What is the best way to cut the holes in the fiberglass for the faucet and control.

3)I was told that some kind of mud should be put beneath the tub. What kind and what is this for????

4) should I use a sealant between the tub & surround??

5) Any other tips would be appreciated.
