What bathtubs and wall surrounds are the best quality for your money?
Thanks so much for your question. As you probably already know there are lots of brands out there. You can purchase these from Home Depot or Lowes or through a plumbing supplier. Then you have to choose if you want to just have flat walls, soap trays and shampoo holders as well as places to hang wash clothes etc.
I think Maxx is a very good manufacturer. You can choose from their Advanta or Premium lines and will get good quality, lots of options to choose from and the price range will still fit most budgets. Click on the following links to find out more.
Another good choice would be Mustee because the quality is still very good and the price is very affordable. We have had our plumbers install many of these over the years. You still get a nice selection of choices as well as option. Click on the link below to find out more.
If you are looking for more of a high end product, then look at Swanstone. This company has a lot to offer and the price may be a little higher, but it really is a good product. Lots of choice and lots of options. Click on the link below to find out more.
We don't want to rule out the product lines they carry at Home Depot or Lowes. If you go there talk to the sales professional about their products and make sure you compare them to the products mentioned above.
Also, remember, if you purchase this from a plumber and the plumber installs it, you will have a full warranty not only on the product, but if something goes wrong, you won't have to pay a plumber to fix it. If you are doing this yourself, then of course you will save money, and that is always a good thing.
I hope this helps, Rick
