All Showerdomes are made on 'blanks' bigger than they need to be to allow for this custom fitting as each and every individual shower has unique measurements.

Installers use either the jigsaw with a carbide blade, or a Linbide scouring tool.It will depend on the shape and size of the Showerdome being installed.
