Acrylic Vs. Fiberglass For Your Shower

June 13, 2018

With so many options for your bathroom remodeling project, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. Thankfully, the Bath Doctor is here to help you navigate the wonderful world of bathroom remodeling.

So, as you think about your new shower, should you invest in fiberglass or acrylic? It can be a tough call when you don’t know the ins and outs of each material. Let’s take a look at both materials and you can decide which one is better suited to your needs.

The Case for Fiberglass Showers

Fiberglass is a common material for showers. It provides a cost-effective option for your Baltimore bathroom remodel and it’s relatively easy for you to clean and maintain. There are some color options, but they are relatively limited.

Tragically, that’s about it for fiberglass showers. Overall, they’re cheaper, but they have several major issues that keep them from surpassing their rival, acrylic showers.

The Case for Acrylic Showers

Acrylic may have a higher initial cost than fiberglass, but overall, it holds the best value.

Acrylic showers are much more durable than their fiberglass counterparts. They can stand up to the day-to-day use and are highly resistant to soap-scum, mold, and hard-water build-up.

They are also scratch resistant. In the event that they are scratched, the damage isn’t always obvious due to the fact that color goes all the way through the material. Not only that, but scratches can be buffed out.

Acrylic showers also come in many different aesthetic options for you. As your local bathroom remodeling expert we can help you find the right option for your shower.
