Acrylic vs. Fiberglass Shower Pan

Previous Next
 
I am having a house built. Which is the better shower pan, acrylic or fiberglass? The pros and cons of each?
Previous Next
 
Answer:
This is an easy question. ACRYLIC is your best friend! There are no disadvantages to using acrylic. It costs more but last forever and keeps the gloss. Acrylic is non-porous, so mold grime and soap scum can not embed into the material. Fiberglass has a gel coat the wears off and exposes the fibers and that`s why it goes awful after so many years. Fiberglass costs less.....BUT will never last longer than acrylic. Consider doing your walls in the same material. There are tons of different applications of acrylic.
