Frameless shower doors can make your bathroom look new and chic. They also help to keep water from the shower from getting on the floor of the room. You can install frameless shower doors for yourself, but it is highly advised that you hire a professional that has experience in hanging frameless shower doors. If you do not wish to hire a professional you should, at least, speak to one to get any information you can to help you with this project.

Once Payless A to Z Home Improvement team has determined the door sizes and make sure that the area where installing the doors is perfectly plumb. That means that the walls are perfectly vertical so the doors will hang correctly, and close properly.
The hinges of the doors will need to be positioned on the doors in the place that is cut out for their installation. You have to tighten these hinge screws very carefully because if you over tighten them you can break your shower doors. The glass for these doors is made of safety glass like the glass you have in your automobile windows. Safety glass is very hard to break, but the edges of safety glass are where it is vulnerable. Be careful to not strike the edge of the glass or you could shatter the glass panel.
Once the hinges are in place on the doors you are ready to put the door into position. Payless A to Z Home Improvement team shim the doors up so that create a clearance space that is three-eights of an inch wide. This clearance is where the bottom sweep of the door will be placed to create a waterproof seal. Mark the wall where the holes for the hinges will need to be made.
You will need to drill holes into the wall where you made the marks, and then place anchors into the wall, unless you are drilling the holes into a wall stud. When attaching the hinges start with the ones on the outside top and outside bottom and then work you away to the others. Payless A to Z Home Improvement team will attach the vinyl sweep that came with doors.
