Is it possible to tell what material a shower stall is made of? Advice on how we can tell? It is not likely acrylic because the builder of the seven year old house we just bought, used inexpensive materials in a lot of places, though I think the house is structurally well built. It was the first one he built on his own (worked with another company for a few years) and I think he did his best with a limited budget.
Anyhow we are doing some upgrading and definitely need to put new doors on the shower. The old caulking was not done neatly and is dingy/dirty. Would it be difficult to remove from a vinyl (if it is vinyl) stall? The color was probably white but seems to have gotten a little yellowed. We are trying to decide if we should just try clean it up and add the doors or look for a new acrylic enclosure.
Another question: do all acrylic surrounds have molded seats? We would really like to do away with that because the time is coming when I will need to fit a shower chair in the space and the seat takes up a lot of room.
