Why Installing a Shower Enclosure Yourself Is a Bad Idea

Shower enclosures and doors are not meant to last forever. When they finally break or become obsolete, you need to have a plan to replace them. You might think you can replace your aging shower enclosure on your own; it’s tempting because you can save money on labor costs. In today’s blog post, Ryan’s all-glass takes some time to explain why installing your own shower enclosure isn’t a good idea. 

Can You Install a Basic Shower Enclosure Yourself?

In short, yes, you can install your new shower enclosure on your own. However, that may not be the best idea. In some cases, replacing your shower door might be a reasonably straightforward process. A person with the right experience might be able to handle a basic shower enclosure installation with an easy-to-install, standard kit. However, when it comes to master bathrooms and enclosures that benefit your bathroom’s overall design, installing shower enclosures is a job for professionals. 

Are Shower Enclosures Difficult to Install?

Installation of a frameless or semi-frameless shower enclosure is more difficult than a traditional enclosure. You must also consider if your bathroom has a unique size or shape. Do-it-yourself installation becomes much harder when you purchase a custom glass shower enclosure to meet precise specifications. Unless you install a very run-of-the-mill shower enclosure, installation will be quite difficult. 

Expert Shower Enclosure Installation Is Worth It

Contact an expert glass company to have a shower enclosure installed by trained professionals for the best results. Most shower enclosures, specifically custom glass or frameless options, require professional service because you can’t ensure proper or safe installation. Nothing is more frustrating than spending hours on a project only to need professional help to finish it. If you install the enclosure improperly, it will take a professional to fix it.
