Essence Sliding Shower Door is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Modern Design; Disappointing Material Quality Really like the brushed nickel frameless design. However, the materials and sturdiness of doors is disappointing. The bottom track brackets are made of plastic. The vertical frames utilize a flimsy vinyl strip to keep water splash in. The doors squeak when opening and closing. The towel bars are made of hollow aluminum and not a solid bar and the finish shows smudges.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don’t shy away from this product The delivery proved to be efficient and the product intact. All components were labeled and corresponded with the enclosed inventory list provided in the instructions. As a builder for over 40 years I found the instructions intuitive and complete. The import for installing this product plumb and aligned with specs can’t be stressed enough. Having done so the operation of the doors is first class. I would only recommend this installation to be performed by an accomplished professional or a seasoned DIY who has a strong grasp on how to lay-out measurements. The step by step instructions will provide a thorough and linear progression towards a clean and efficiently operating product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from beautiful but flawed This door is gorgeous and just what we wanted. However, there is a HUGE gap between the panes that allows water to escape if water stream hits doors. Even worse the low profile metal strip at the bottom... terrible design. The tolerance of the receiver is extremely small, with no adjustment so if they are off even 1/16" the doors will hit the receivers and have to flex to close. But the worst part is the tiny metal strip on the bottom has NO weatherstrip which allows water to literally splash out right under the door. And if the stream of water hits the door the water just flows up and over the sill. Its ironic that they provide very effective weatherstrip for the sides, but none for the bottom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Shower Doors We just recently needed new shower doors for our Master Bathroom and I was recommended by a friend to check our Dreamline and I am very happy that I did. I actually had someone come out and install my shower doors and they had no issue with the instructions as some have stated. The gentleman that installed our doors however insured us that he does this quite often so I think this is why he was able to install with ease. Reading other reviews I was nervous of the finish and the plastic pieces that everyone was mentioning prior to me purchasing the doors, but once installed and seeing them up I think the shower doors are perfect! They do not look plastic to me nor feel cheap at all, I am very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I have had this shower door installed for about a month, and I really like it. The width of mine is between 56" and 60" - formerly a standard tub. The overall look is sleek, the materials have a very high quality appearance and the doors work well for me so far, and I feel that it will last well. I had a contractor install the door, which was definitely the right thing to do for me. After he was finished I got excellent help from the technical support people at Dreamline on a follow-up that I needed. I felt the price was very reasonable. Overall, very thumbs up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sharp looking shower door My husband and I just finished remodeling our master bath. We took out a fiber glass tub surround, installed marble tile and this shower door sets it off nicely. Same problem with the instructions as other comment - but DreamLine emailed the correct ones. Pretty easy to install and very heavy doors (a little too heavy for senior citizens to install but we managed and really appreciate that they are so heavy now they are in use).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Door This is a fine door, very heavy and a good buy. The only problem is that the installation directions which were packaged with the product were apparently for an older design, and did not match the parts list of the door which was sent. I was able to get help from Dreamline online and download the revised installation instructions. It is apparent from other comments that this problem has occurred before.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty nice shower door kit. Just installed this today. Well designed. Excellent instructions. Nice looking product. As long as your walls are plumb and the threshold level your in good shape. There’s a nice elliptical roller adjustment to fine tune the doors make even contact with the walls. Installer note: If you are installing on tile walls make sure to have a diamond bit for your drill.

the glass doors seem to spot. Please advise why this occurs? I was confident from reviews this would NOT happen.

Thank you for reaching out to DreamLine. The panels of the Essence are treated with ClearMax on one side, which should be installed so that side faces inward. There is a sticker on the panel that notes what side has the ClearMax on it. If you have any other questions, please contact the DreamLine Customer Support Team at 866.731.8378. We are available 8am-6pm EST, Monday through and will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Do you make larger side pieces to hide an unplumb wall? I have a large gap from my wall not being level. I am trying to just buy larger metal to hide the gap.

Asked by: Logan
Thank you for reaching out to DreamLine. We do not make a larger wall profile. Shower doors are designed and engineered to fit very specific site conditions. It sounds as if your walls are more out of plumb than what this door can accommdate for, and unfortunately, we do not have a fix for that. We invite you to contact a DreamLine Customer Support Team at 866-731-2244 to discuss this further. They will be able to assist you.

Re: labels—When correctly installed, the label can be read from inside the shower (and will be mirror-image or read backwards from outside the shower?). Please verify. 

Asked by: Beve
Thank you for considering DreamLine. The side with the ClearMax sticker on it should be the side that is installed facing inward, towards your shower. If you have any other questions, please contact a DreamLine PreSales Consultant at 866.282.8413. We are available 9am-6pm EST, Monday through and will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Does the Essence model(double bypass doors) still require drilling into the threshold or has this recently been upgraded as your Encore model with two sliding doors?

Asked by: Reno 2020
Thank you for reaching out to DreamLine. The Essence models have guide blocks that must be drilled in to your threshold. The Encore has a bottom rail that the guide blocks attach to that hold them in place. The Essence does not. There have not been any modifications to the Essence family of doors. If you have any other questions, please contact a DreamLine PreSales Consultant at 866.282.8413. We are available 9am-6pm EST, Monday through and will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Is your 32 x 48" shower base with centre drain 'already' pitched 3 degrees inward to avoid water splashing out of 2 sliding doors or does the pitch have to be done upon installing onto mortar? Need a clear answer.

Asked by: Reno 2020
Thank you for reaching out to DreamLine. The base is already pitched as needed. Per the instructions, you will install the base level on the bed of mortar. All slopes are already worked into the base. DreamLine does recommend that our products be installed by professionals. The base is the foundation for your shower and you want to make sure it is installed perfectly. We invite you to contact a DreamLine PreSales Consultant at 866-282-8413 to discuss this further.

The manual suggests wiping door after use with soft cloth. BUT there is no mention of how to clean, when not wiped down everytime. How do you clean soap & water residue from glass? Glass cleaner? (Ammonia?) Vinegar & water? Dish soap? Laundry soap?

Asked by: VADave
Thank you for reaching out to DreamLine. We only recommend the use of mild dish soap for deeper cleaning of our product. You do not want to use anything caustic or abrasive on your DreamLine shower door. Also, no vinegar or ammonia.
