Can I Install a shower enclosure system by myself?

Although it’s not impossible to do it at home or by yourself, it’s not recommended in any way, shape or form that you try. Shower enclosure installation is a fine art consisting of many, many details. If you happen to miss something or don’t install something in the right way, you’re going to be faced with issues such as leaks and even shattered glass.  This could become a huge liability for safety as well as financial reasons. It would be a much wiser idea to just hire a professional first hand.

How do I clean my shower enclosure?

One of the most important factors in keeping your shower enclosure in great shape over time is preventing buildup of water. You’re going to want to have a squeegee lying around as well as non-ammonia based cleaner like rain-x. These will prevent mineral build up which will eventually eat away at your shower enclosure.
