 proofing detail and tiling integrates with Glasstrends shower enclosure design and positioning. Our services include obtaining all final
 working dimensions. In order to provide the highest possible standard of installation and avoid costly errors it is essential that the
 surface the glass is being installed to is completed before working dimensions are taken. This will enable all measurements to be
 accurate and correct. Glasstrends showers are manufactured to very small tolerances and toughened glass can not be altered or
 trimmed after it has been made; therefore it is our company policy that all site dimensions must be taken from a finished surface.
