What do I need to consider when looking at installing shower screens?

The most important consideration when looking to install a shower screen is that the shower is completely waterproof. If the bathroom is old and you have cracked tiles, the waterproof membrane could be compromised.

If your shower area is water-tight, then the next consideration will be which shower screen best suits the bathroom and which tools are needed to install it.
