We are preparing to remodel our main bathroom and THOUGHT we wanted to get a tub surround so we wouldn't have to deal with grout/caulk issues. Initially we had decided on a Best Bath System http://www.best-bath.com/Gallery/Gallery.htm then we started wondering about the Sterling by Kohler. We saw a cutout of the Best system at a local bath store and it looks thick and strong. We haven't been able to see/touch the Sterling system. If we get a surround rather than traditional tile we lose the ability to have a towel bar in the tub area and are stuck with configurations that aren't exactly what we want. Plus there is the unknown - will the product last? I thought I was so sure about the surround but after reading in this forum it seems the surround and the matching acrylic tub are subject to flexing, cracking, and who knows what else. Sounds like I'm talking myself into traditional tub and tile - yes? I would like some professional input - if it was your house, and from your experience, what would you use?
