With a plethora of “walk-in-showers” and “tub-to shower conversions” being advertised on TV and Radio, many first time homeowners and seniors are considering plastic baths as a suitable alternative to a custom built tile or natural stone shower system. Not all Showers are created equal.
If you are considering an acrylic shower or fiberglass shower in Jacksonville you should learn of the disadvantages in order to make an informed decision. One of the primary complains of Acrylic shower systems is that the pan bends and squeaks when you step in your shower, this leaves many homeowners concerned of the long-term structural durability. Some thin shower pans are known to bend and crack causing a chain reaction of plumbing problems in the bathroom.
Other common complaints with acrylic showers are drain problems and moisture buildup behind the shower panel system, causing mold and mildew to accumulate and require structural wall repairs. Some plumbers have began recommending ‘solid acrylic tub’ backed with fiberglass systems, however many suffer from the same issues.
If your acrylic tub has draining problems, water could immediately rush to one side of the tub, or just stay pooled in the corner. Some homeowners have come to the conclusion that all acrylic tubs have imperfections.
