I recently purchased a house, and wanted to install glass frameless bath doors in the bathroom. The problem I have is, a quarter of the window in that bathroom goes into the tub area which would pose a problem for the installation. How do I solve this problem?

Hi Ricardo

Don't install a full sliding glass panel. Install a tub shield such as in the link below

Sounds like the window will need to be removed .

The best solution to this issue is to remove your window completely. If this is not an option you can cover the window in from the inside and leave it but you will need to insulate Etc. I would recommend hiring a contractor/Carpenter

I would have to agree wuth dave on this one. Since your shower is on the right side your pretty much save for a frame like the one dave showed. I would close or move the window.
