    According to the video mentioned in the previous answer it is guaranteed for only ten years. So if you glue it to your wall, in ten years you may have to end up paying someone to come in and take it off plus whatever it is glued to. Could get costly.

    Someone always comes up with some new products for the DIY. PVC tongue and groove panels to replace stone tiles and grout. I would read reviews and do quite a bit of research before trying it out. Also compare costs against other products. Still would need to waterproof the walls just like for tile. I don't like to take chances. I would be very hesitant to "staple?" directly to bare 2X4's. Also I would caulk the tongue and groove joints for a watertight connection. Seems like more work than I need.

    I agree with William. I looked at this product for a remodel, received a sample and, and then decided to go with traditional materials. My concerns involved durability and resale value.

    I'm probably too late, but for anyone else stay away from this product. The trim is sold in a 5 pack that you have to buy 2 of for an alcove shower priced at 138.00 each set. That is if you can even find the color you need.
