If you are planning to install a shower enclosure, one thing you have to know is that you do not require an expert to do the work for you. It is very easy to install a shower enclosure as long as you have all the tools and materials needed for the work. The first thing that you have to do is to start with the shower tray and you need to remember that the shower tray needs to be placed evenly on the floor as it is the foundation of your shower enclosure so you have to ensure that you install it properly.

Once you have installed the shower tray properly, the second step is to ensure that the gaps are sealed using a silicone sealer in order to waterproof the area and to reduce the leakage of water on the edges of the shower tray. The last step is to fit in the valve as well as the showerhead.
