A Great Shower Door Installation

There are few pleasures on earth that compare to a hot shower in a glass-encased shower stall when done correctly. Of course, there is one thing that is truly better than that: a hot shower in a glass-encased shower stall that you designed yourself. For the DIY enthusiast, installing a shower door can be a really entertaining project. It isn’t difficult, but it does take expertise, persistence, the proper equipment, and the ability to produce stunning results. Beautiful in a way that makes you feel good about yourself. So, for the first-time DIYer, here’s a quick guide to installing a shower door. If you’re looking for more tips, Custom Vinyl Products has it for you.

The very first thing you must do is cut the track. You must carefully measure the area inside the shower door and cut the track based on that calculation. You can do it with a hack saw. A mitre box is a smart idea if you just want straight edges.

You’ll need to keep the track in place for the time being. It must be put on the bathtub or shower area and then taped in place. Locate and slide the side rails into place. A plumb level can be used to ensure that all is level.

The jambs must now be mounted on both sides of the curb. Remove the jambs and all after marking the holes where they will go. Now is the time to get in the heavy machinery. Get a 3/16-inch drill bit that can break through a smooth surface like tile and start drilling. What you need now are some plastic nail holders or wall holders that can hold screws. After hammering them into the holes you’ve created, you’re ready to screw them in.

Now you can add caulk to the track and make sure it’s properly mounted. Make certain that they are mounted in the correct direction. The weep holes must be on the inside of the building.

Now that you’ve laid the base, it’s time to put the header, rollers, and door in place. That’s where you’ll finally mount the shower door.
