    Is there anyone in the Pittsburgh, PA area who you would recommend to install this shower enclosure? I don’t think my contractor wants to do it as they have never done it before and don’t know the correct way to install.

  2. Ella Starr says:

    Thank you for the tip that an ultra-clear shower door is a great style choice. I am remodeling my bathroom this summer and want a shower screen. I will find a great shower screen company in my area.

  3. Braden Bills says:

    I want to make sure that my shower looks really nice, but I’m not sure what to use for it. It makes sense that I would want to consider getting glass shower screens! I’ll be sure to do some measurements to ensure that I get ones that are the right size.
