My travertine stone tile shower surround is too small for my new glass shower door.

Q: I bought a glass shower door. The opening is approx. 1/8" to small. I am checking on having the glass door reduced by that amount. Or is there a way I can sand the travertine tile so the door will close.

A: No, you do not want to sand the tile. If you do, you will change the finish of the stone and will have to have it honed or polished to blend in with the surrounding tiles. Your best bet is to have the glass door reduced or adjusted somehow.
