    Hi

    I am going to renew my shower in the next few weeks but wanted to cover the walls quick but make sure they are watertight has anyone used any sort of plastic wall cladding for showers ? I am concerned about the amount if joints to click in and seal as it's 250 mm wide so 4 joins in 1m . Also where the shower door screws to the walls will the cladding collapse as I see it's hollow ?

    Any help please as I don't have time or money to tile the cubicle .

    Thank you shaun

    The cheap cladding on ebay will collapse but the half decent stuff should be ok but it will obviously pinch a bit. You can be clever and pump a load of silicone into the channels where you know the screws are going to be and let it set before fixing.

    My supplier is in birmingham but I know they will post, they do a budget range of internal cladding, all you need to do is score the back, score the tiles and no nails the cladding to the shower cubicle, they will advise on joints and leaks etc

    Thank you for the reply so do you fit the cladding? What sort of finish do you get ? Does your supplier have a web site so I can see what they sell ? Also what thickness do you normally fit as I see there are three 5mm, 8mm and 10mm? Thanks shaun
