Not a week-end warrior project!

Comments about Sterling Plumbing Vista Pivot II Shower Door:

The shower door in our master bedroom had not been taken care of and the metal frame had begun to deteriorate to the point that we needed to replace the entire shower door. After looking at the existing door it appeared that the door frame was a simple assembly that was screwed into the shower module. If we could find a replacement door of the same measurement it should be a snap to replace. [assuming was *our* first mistake]

After checking out all of the home improvement stores in the area we found that the **Sterling Plumbing Vista Pivot II Shower Door** was a near perfect fit. The door came with a silver frame that matched the one that it was replacing and came with a pivoting door and a stationary in-line panel that looks nice. The model looked like a quick fix, but then, after talking to another salesman he suggested that we might want to hire the job as the installation required cutting and fitting the door for a snug fit. We took his suggestion. It proved to be good advice.

We hired a local contractor with a good reputation and the date for installation was calendared in. He would come over one evening and work in the job between bigger jobs, thinking it would take an hour or two to complete. [assuming was *his* first mistake]

The directions that came with the unit were not clear, did not make sense and caused more frustration than instruction. The contractor said that he had NEVER seen a door that was installed that way. For one thing, it was not a simple frame- it came in pieces that had to be measured and fit and created. [One wrong cut and the entire project could be ruined.]

The door was finally installed [with only one piece needing to be ordered due to a wrong cut]. The door looks nice once it is installed, but, if I knew what I know now before we bought the door I'm not sure we would have bought it.

**Bottom Line:**

The door looks nice once it is installed, but it isn't a week-end warrior project.
