A bathroom remodel involves making a number of important choices and decisions, all of which can have a profound effect the function and feel of the space. When it comes to choosing your bathtub, a number of considerations come to mind, from design to usability, particularly when mobility is an issue.
Re-Bath & More carries a number of options, including DuraBath ® SSP Bathtubs, which are built to last and made from strong, durable materials which are resistant to chipping, cracking, fading or peeling. In addition to their tough exterior, our bathtubs are designed to suit any decor, with a generous selection of colors, sizes and styles to choose from. Once you’ve chosen the right bathtub, the next step is deciding on the tub surround, to compliment the look and feel of your tub, and enhance the functionality.

Types of Tub Surrounds
The sky’s the limit when it comes to tub surrounds, and which type you choose depends on a number of factors including personal preference, needs, and budget. Options include:
Premium Composite/Solid Surface Surround
This line of tub surrounds is the most durable—chip and scratch resistant and virtually indestructible. Caulkless seams add to the beauty of the product, available in a number of realistic textured and tile patterns, and while the cost may be a deterrent to some, it’s important to consider the longer lifespan of such a quality product, many of which come with a lifetime warranty.
Fiberglass tub surrounds are a middle-of-the-road option when it comes to cost and durability, adequate for most applications. Light scratches can be repaired, and with regular maintenance and cleaning, this type of surround can be kept looking new for years to come.
Although this type of tub surround is the least expensive, the low price tag comes with some hidden costs. Without fiberglass reinforcement, acrylic material is quite flimsy, and can be easily damaged. Once scratches or chips occur, they can’t be repaired, and then may be unsightly or cause potential water damage to walls from leakage.
Surrounding your DuraBath® SSP bathtub with tile offers you the most versatility in color and design options. With an infinite number of potential combinations of color, material, pattern and style, tile tub surrounds offer you the opportunity to express your personal style, with an easy-to-clean, durable material, like Daltile.
