This shower door makes the shower look like it should have when we had our custom home built. The only deduction in the entire product is the difficulty in installation. It is definitely a two man job and at least one of the two better be skilled! Once installed, it looks great! I have not replaced my plumbing yet but the door is just what we wanted.

This shower door is beautiful and very high quality. The installation is tedious especially if it's a retrofit but well worth it. The door is heavy and it really finishes off our new tiled shower perfectly.

I bought this to replace a builders grade framed door (45-46"). My shower walls were not plumb, the opening was not even, and this Dreamliner model is designed very well to handle all of that.
For mounting the hinges, I found it more workable to deviate from the instructions (2 people holding a door steady, level, aligned, etc...not real easy and seemed prone to error). With an out of plumb issue, on the top hinge, and the top 2 screws, I used a tape measure and level. Drill the pilot holes the full distance into wood (the factory screws will strip heads if the hole is too tight to thread, and I also put a brace in the wall from my closet side wall since the studs did not line up). I started the top 2 screws into the pilot holes. I used a plumb bob (hanging from those 2 screws) to mark and check each hole after that (verifying alignment with a level). After marking the holes, pilot and pre-thread the holes (using the screws) before hanging the door. Put the hinges back together before hanging, and use blue painters tape on the flat surface of the hinges for protection from your screws and drill when mounting (if you do not, you will scratch the cosmetic surface of the hinges).
For setting door gaps and checking them in final adjustments, examine seals to ensure good contact.
When not using the shower, I recommend leaving the door open -- this will avoid the wall seals from taking a permanent set in the closed position ( so they flex and seal better).
