Shower surround?


Has anyone heard of using the rubberized truck bed liner as a shower surround? Some clown at home depot told me about this...not sure if he was just jerkin my chain or what? Also...epoxy paint as surround?? Does this go right on the sheetrock and make it water tight????

I've never heard of that and i sure wouldn't want to rub up against the spray on bedliner that is in my truck. And the truck bed liners are super hard to clean.

You could smear silicone all over the shower walls with a 12" tape knife and I am sure you would have a water proof barrier that would be less abrasive then a bed liner application. I would use white silicone instead of clear.

OK, I was just checkin', you seemed pretty interested in the bed-liner concept.

P.S. I can tell you also that Coy Ponds are cheaper to operate in the long run than swimming pools, but hey, ya didn't ask me didja. Besides, look how convenient they can be when you want to have friends over for a fish fry.

As Bud so eloquently eluded to, spray-on bedliners are certainly not for use in bathrooms or showers. Some of the advice that people get at home centers astounds me. I'm sure it would look great for the first couple months, and then would be an ugly mess. Goofy.

Epoxy paint is great due to its durability and the fact that it is generally impervious. Using it as a tub/shower surround is not an application it is intended for, and probably would not stay nice long-term. Epoxy paint is often used in commercial construction around water closets and urinals since the code requires an impervious surface in those areas (we call it a pee shield ). Nothing soaks in (unlike other paints) and it is scrubbable. For shower walls, no!

Shower Surround....this thread is about SHOWER SURROUNDS. Not bed liners or the mis-use of bedliner products.
