installing glass sliding wardrobe doors

Hi! I want to install my own glass sliding wardrobe doors in my bedroom but I'm not sure if its going to be worth doing it myself and saving a good few hundreds, possibly thousands, on installing them. Does anyone else has had previous experience on installing sliding wardrobe doors? Any tips to give me?

I think hundreds or thousands is a very high estimate even in R$ for installation. It is something a DIY person, handy man or carpenter can do with normal tools. If you buy the doors in a kit the hardware should be included and the instructions should talk you through everything.

A few simple tools and follow the manufacturers instructions. Measure the opening at the top and bottom and cut the tracks to fit. Screw the tracks in place making sure that are plumb. Depending on the type of doors, hang top roller doors or fit bottom roller doors in to top track and set onto bottom track. Adjust rollers so that doors close against the jambs.
