The three walls surrounding a bathtub take a lot of abuse, especially if the bathroom serves a house full of family members who bathe daily. Those conditions call for a hard-working, durable surface with the ability to withstand the moisture and continued workout. A solid surface material is a good choice to replace less-than-perfect tub walls; a three-wall panel system designed for a bathtub enclosure is even better. It includes a single seamless back panel, two side panels and two corner molding strips.

A carpenter will charge $770 to remove the plumbing fixtures, replace the existing walls with a solid surface wall panel system, and reinstall the plumbing fixtures. The cost will be more if structural repair work is needed for the walls or if you want to replace the old fixtures with new ones. If you have plumbing and carpentry skills and tools, you can do the job for $550, the cost of the wall panel kit. However, we think it's a job best left for a professional who has the expertise and array of tools needed to custom cut the material to fit the openings for the plumbing fittings.
