    I've had builders in to redo my bathroom, the wall they tiled on one side is not plumb, resulting in the gap at the top for the shower door recess to be 1cm less than the gap at the bottom.

    They have fitted the shower door and slid the magnetic door seal out from the door end to make up the gap, which I suppose the door is designed to allow for, but I don't like it at all.

    So I'm planning on installing a new door myself.

    My question is,
    are there any high quality recess shower doors that allow for this kind of recess gap inconsistency, other than sliding a piece of plastic seal along to make up the gap?

    Thanks

    Walls need to be plumb, shower sets are adjustable for width, not out of plumb.

    There will be minor adjustment on the frame but 10mm would be excessive.

  7. Is there any adjustment on the door rollers to level the door so that the magnetic strip can be pushed back?
