How do I install a shelf in my shower if I have to drill in the tile?
When it comes to installing glass in showers we recommend you leave the installation to us. We have the special drill bits needed to drill into tile. Drilling into tile is second nature to our experienced crews, we do this everyday. Precision is key here, this is tile! The shelf brackets must be in the correct spot, the first time. There are no room for mistakes when you are drilling into tile. Drywall patch is not an option. The holes must be drilled right the first time!
