    Default Showerwall

    Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen
    I wonder whether any of you have ever used "Showerwall" products. I've been asked to do 2 shower surrounds with this stuff and it seems fairly straight-forward. However on the Showerwall web-site the fitting instructions and diagrams are unclear and I personally would need to be handling the materials whilst reading through the instructions to understand the operation fully. I thought someone out there may have an opinion and be able to advise on any complications that may exist.
    Thanks for your help.
    All the best,
    Jim

    I have seen it fitted but not done it myself...more of a joiners job i think...


    It comes in a few colours/effects but not as good as tiles IMO..

    seen it on roofs plenty of times(nightmare to tile up to if it's left looking like a rollercoaster),didn't realise people were putting it on walls now,suppose it's something else to do us out of work!

    Thanks everyone.
    It appears that there are a number of similar products like this "showerwall" product. This is upvc in a honeycombe format. You can stick it onto walls, plasterboard, existing tiles and battens if any of the aforementioned aren't flat enough.
    As for price I put in a day rate price as I have no idea how long it would take but don't want to be under any pressure to rush it.
    Thanks again,
    Jim
