acrylic vs fiberglass shower/tub surround

Karen.1288December 17, 2012

We are building a house and have decided to use a one piece tub/shower in the kids baths. We were quoted a price for the fiberglass in the $350 ball park. I've been looking around and it seems as though acrylic is the way to go for ease of cleaning and longevity but it also seems as though they are substantially more expensive $1000 ball park. Is there a substantial difference? I want this type of tub mainly for ease of cleaning vs. tiled shower.

Both are easy to clean.
