Ever hear of Swanstone?

We are building a new bathroom. Recently found this material called swanstone for the shower walls. (Also used for counter tops)

It looks like a corian or other solid surface.

It is used in large sheets for the shower walls with cauking in the corners and bottom. This would make cleaning easier without all the grout lines of tile.

Has anyone used this? Any pro's or cons?

Any shared experience would be helpful. Thanks....Kevin

Hi Kevin,

There are a number of solid surface materials on the market, which are wonderful for countertops, but in my opinion, none of them measures up to ceramic tile in the shower are. The fact that caulking is used as the main constructon accessory will tell you something. Caulking is in no way a permanent material. Caulking is all that holds the shower together and keeps it from leaking.

We had 2 Swanstone sinks (2 houses) and they are great!

I see no problem using them in the Bathroom.
