Question surround over surround?

Can I install a shower surround and tub over an existing 1 piece surround with tub, or do I have to take off the old surround and remove the tub? I have no idea what's underneath the tub or the surround.

It is not recommended to place a surround directly over another. Surfaces would be toom smooth to provide proper adhesion, regardless of what you might do.

It is best to remove what is there, which is not placed behind tub edges nor would it be under tub. You may have to repair some drywall if the dyrwall surface is not flat as needed for a good finished job.

Good Luck!
