A customer that we finished a project for recently had a well known glass enclosure company install their bathtub door and while installing the door one of the tiles was broken. For the most part, it is less expensive to have these companies install these doors but the difference in the price between your bathroom remodeling contractor and the glass door company is that our price includes any damage done to the tile during installation that the tiles will be replaced and then the door reinstalled. My suggestion is, when it's a custom enclosure, then obviously you have to have the enclosure company install it, but if it's a glass door you can order/purchase and have your contractor install it, then you should have the contractor install it. In the attached photo there is now a hairline crack at the tile where the door was installed.
