Question DetailsAsked on 6/6/2011

Anyone have any experience with veritek tub and/or tub walls?

I have a bathroom circa 1970 that is tiled around the bathtub/shower. The sheetrock behind the tile has deteriorated and the shower now leaks. We wish to repair the walls and replace the tile with an inexpensive tub wall surround. We are also going to replace the bathtub. We've seen a product online by Swanstone ... Veritek Natural Gloss Composite Bath Alcove Walls (BA-3060). They also make a bathtub which matches the the walls.

Sorry, don't know the product. Just be careful using anything "inexpensive". Make sure you aren't throwing away a perfectly good 300 pound cast iron tub and putting in something worse. Once I did that and wished I had just had the tub refinished instead. No matter what, this is a job which requires the drywall properly replaced, the plumbing correctly and securlely installed, any related trim at the floor and walls addressed. If the product covers all of these things, it may be a good choice. It will run you from $500 (materials only) to $5,000 or more to fix this problem, depending on who does it and how it's done. Remember that the problem was probably with the plumbing and before you cover it up, make sure it will last.

just get a trustworthy (by majority) plumbing Riverside team or something who can estimate and identify the job and specs of the job for you.
