swafalosky,

Issue is what do YOU want? If you like tile do it in tile, if you like surrounds, do that. I have attached some links to tile backers and tile installation how to's;

If you are interested in surrounds, here are some links;

Compare costs, features and benefits of either tile or surrounds, make your decision based on what you like.

Hope this helps!

A lot of builders prefer to use the plastic shower and tub enclosures. They have fewer call backs for leaks and tile repair.
