|Fitting and installing the tub wall surround system|
There are a gazillion bathtub and surround tub options. We kept it simple selecting a deep soaking tub for myself, and a durable surround tub system for the other people who like to shower.
The tub surround system came in five panels; one for each end and three for the back. All four large panels had to be cut and trimmed to fit the contour of the wall and tub edge.
The panels were cut with our circular saw refitted with a masonry blade. A bastard file was used to fine tune the fit, and a power drill with a hole saw attachment was used to cut out the faucet and spout opening, Lastly the panels were secured in place with the manufacturers recommended adhesive.
