Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JJT Shower door install
Install was relatively easy and straightforward
They recommend professional installation but I would consider myself a advanced DIYer and had no trouble. It is definitely two-person operation with both being able to lift a substantial amount of weight.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PteraDad Very solid well made product!
This is a very heavy, well made system. Definitely a two man lift. Plenty of adjustment possibilities made final fitment a breeze. We skipped the edge gaskets and threshold for a cleaner look. End result is gorgeous and feels solid and high end. Unit was shipped to my local HD and arrived in great condition.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dcmikez beautiful doors, great design
We renovated a small bathroom and needed glass doors so it wouldn't feel so cramped. We were worried about the cost of these because they're expensive, however they were worth the price. The doors are thick and very heavy. I installed them myself with the help of my brother in-law and we struggled at times. If you can have someone install them for you it's definitely the way to go. This is not a project for someone without experience.
That said, the doors are gorgeous and work wonderfully. Have no complaints about them at all.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Justine Nice shower doors!
Ordered door and received at store earlier than promised. Was very heavy, but father-in-law and I unloaded in garage, unpacked it there, then carried it in the house piece by piece. Had tile guy install as I didn't want to attempt that! It was a challenge for him as it was the first time installing this kind of shower door and it took him about 4 hours. Turned out beautiful. It is in our guest bath and now I want to use it all the time. Good buy, hoping it lasts a long time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Glenn The heavy glass and rollers make for a beautiful shower.
I chose this product because it matches the 'barn-door' treatment in my master bedroom. They are really heavy and require two people to install but once you get them up, they are the best looking shower doors I've seen.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Steve Very happy with the product, but...
I really like the product. The quality is great, the value is pretty good, and the installation was good to a point. This product is more for tiled walls. I installed a shower stall, and there weren't instructions for that type of install. We were able to figure it out to make it work. I would definitely recommend this product!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HVTechGuy Well Made with Quality Materials - Challenge to Install
This Vigo Elan shower door is expensive but worth it - very solid with thick glass and stainless steel traverse bar and handles. Looks fantastic on my new shower and a pleasure to slide open and closed - like the doors on a luxury car.
My installer claimed it was a challenging install and definitely a two person job; the thicker glass elements are far too heavy for one person to handle safely.
Overall I am very pleased, and believe this was worth the cost premium.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Terry Very pretty door - but handle carefully
Now that the installation is complete, the door looks beautiful. Unfortunately, the guys I hired to install it broke the fixed glass portion initially. Apparently they bumped it against something trying to fit it in the shower - seems it is fairly delicate. Since you can't order just that piece from home depot, I had to go directly to Vigo to get a replacement. The cost for the part and the shipping was $300. Although my installer covered this, it was a bother and delayed the completion of my shower project by another week and half. Also - be aware that Vigo includes vinyl edge seals that are supposed to be placed on the interior door edges, to prevent water from leaking to the exterior through the area where the doors overlap. They didn't look good, so I removed these, and have found no problems with water leaking.
