With the right tools and knowledge, a pivoting shower door installation adds style and value to any bathroom. Unlike a sliding bathtub or shower door, a pivoting shower door is a bit more complex to install due to the design and function of the door. While not a project for a novice, if access to the proper tools and knowledge about construction basics is available, it can be a favorable experience.
A key ingredient to correct installation is clear and comprehensive pivoting door instructions. To complete a pivoting shower door install, about a dozen tools are needed. While most tools are basic and common to most households, a few are unique to the installation of a pivoting shower door. Always check the product or instructions to ensure the right tools are available.
Fundamental troubleshooting experience is often needed to address possible door-related enclosure issues, such as out-of-plumb conditions. A very important installation step that is very crucial to any pivoting door installation is to ‘measure twice – and cut once’. This targets the bottom track installation step of pivoting shower doors. Care should be taken at this step to ensure a successful installation.
A key ingredient to any successful pivoting door installation is the careful review and thorough following of the instructions.
