In response to Re: Installing cultured marble shower walls
Cultured marble can be cut using a masonry blade on a circular saw. I put masking tape on the bed of the saw to prevent scratching the marble surface. Marble is hard to mark, so I use blue colored masking tape as a line to cut to. Panel adhesive works for gluing the panels. However, I prefer non-primed greenboard for glueing. A bead of Silicone should be put under the bottom edge where the panel will set with small shims which can be removed after the panels are all in place. Silicone all of the joints when done. Terry

: I am attempting to install cultured marble panels as shower walls and would greatly appreciate any advice
: on cutting this product. I have to cut a hole for the faucet and may have to trim the edges. I would also like
: to know what type of adhesive to use. I have installed new green board and have put a coat of primer over
: it. I've heard this product may be very brittle and I should take precautions to keep it from cracking, etc.
