shower stall installed upside down and leaking at the bottom


Our builder installed our shower stall upside down. It splashes out water at the bottom. How hard would it be to turn it over? The logo for the door is in the top left corner and should be in the bottom right.

I don't understand how a shower stall could be installed upside down.

Why not call your builder and make him fix it?

a regular framed glass door is not hard to install, but frame less glass doors with glass walls are a major PITA. All you need to do for a framed door is drill new anchor holes, make sure its nice and plumb, and caulk the heck outta it. but frame less glass is not a good diy if you've never done it before. call the builder if it's still under warranty, make him fix it.
