Installing a sliding shower door, whether Traditional or Contemporary style, can be a rewarding do-it-yourself project that adds flair and value to your home if done correctly. To help determine the degree of difficulty of installing a shower door, projects that are similar in complexity would be installation of a ceiling fan or an under sink garbage disposal. Also, a family member or a friend with project experience is another great way to make your sliding shower door installation a favorable experience.
For those more experienced with shower door installation, the satisfaction of doing the project yourself is made easier with clear instructions and access to the right tools. On average, it takes about a dozen tools; many of which are popular tools found around most homes. One installation area extremely crucial to any shower door installation is to ‘measure twice – and cut once’. This largely impacts the top-track and bottom track of most common bathtub and shower doors. If an error occurs at this step of the installation, it can prevent correct operation of the shower door.
A key ingredient to any successful bathtub or shower door installation is the careful review and thorough following of the instructions. The Delta® Shower Door program offers very thorough installation instructions that feature detailed illustrations and text to provide as much information as possible in a simple and easy-to-follow format.
