bath glass enclosure
My contractor installed a 3/8 tempered glass enclosure in my bath. After every shower I noticed a small pool of water on the outside floor. I told him about it and he suggested we adjust the shower door hinges, but it did not fix the issue. Upon further assessment I noticed one of the glass panels was installed on a slant. So my question is, "Is it safe to remove the glass without it shattering?"

it is safe to remove, if you're careful and know what you're doing. But, why not get the contractor to fix his mistake?

It could also be a difficult problem to fix. It's very rare to have perfectly plumb walls - trying to mate up to that with a perfectly square glass panel will often leave a tapered gap. You may have to resort to use additional trim or clear caulk to fill any gaps that cause leakage.

Yes, take advice from an expert in this field. Be careful while removing the glass, otherwise you may damage it.
