Matte shower walls

Hi, is there any difference in the everyday cleaning and care of glossy vs matte shower walls? Also is gloss more resistant to hard water or vice versa?  Thanks!

Very common question. Both matte and gloss shower walls are very easy to maintain. I would say matte finish is a little easier as it tends to hide the water spots left behind by calcium in your water. 

Both gloss finish and matte finish shower walls are manufactured with a gel coat so they are sealed. Matte finish is achieved by slightly sanding the high sheen gel coat giving it a more 'dull' appearance. 

I hope this answers your question.
