In response to Re: tub and shower replacement
: I am planning on replacing my existing, 50 year old tub and ceramic tile shower. Would it be best to use one of those 2 or 3 piece fiberglass units, or a steel/cast iron tub with surround walls?

: Also, when installing the fiberglass unit, is it necessary to put wall board up first? I have a concern because the room I am working in is not much longer than the standard 5 foot tub.

: Any help or advice you can provide is greatly appreciated.


A 2 or three piece unit will usually require access to the back of the tub to secure it together. If you don't want to cut holes in walls in the other rooms then a steel tub can be istalled from inside the bathroom walls.
