How Much Does It Cost To Install An Acrylic Bathtub Surround Or Shower Surround Cost? Let’s Explore The Difference First.
When considering installing an acrylic tub surround over your tile wall or drywall. You’ll want to weigh the difference between types of material and thickness as well the installation method.
For these concerns is why we only install BCI wall surrounds. Having the thickest product on the market just makes sense.
Also BCI uses 15% Acrylic capped 85% ABS, meaning the backbone of the product being ABS (Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) what football helmets are made of is extremely tough and durable.
The Acrylic component provides you with the glossy hygienic easy to clean characteristic you’re looking for.
On the low end you’ll find surrounds made of PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride). These are low in gloss and the plastic is much softer allowing them to be scratched and damaged easier. Then there are tub surrounds made from 100% acrylic, these are more brittle then the acrylic capped ABS and cost more.
Installation of your acrylic tub wall surround is also a critical concern as many contractors short several important steps. One being the absence of using Butyl primer under the Butyl tape used to hold the acrylic wall surround up.
The second feature we see not being done is in between the Butyl tape the wall should have Silicon sealant generously applied. Once cured the silicon will permanently secure the surround while the tape holds it in place. Plus this prevents the wall from flexing when leaned on and prevents the acrylic wall from cracking.
