Shower door install before tile?


I screwed up!

I made the shower door opening approxamtely 1/4" too small. Does anyone have any experience installing a glass shower door (pivot, frameless) before the tile goes up? Is this even possible? I was told it was, but can't comprehend how it would work.

Any help on this would help.

I would think that would leave a seam open and you would be counting on caulking to keep water out, which is not a great idea.

Thanks guys,

Stupid question I know. I have returned the original door and bought a door that fits my opening. What a simple solution. Thanks again and sorry for wasting your time...
