Shower Doors

Custom frameless shower doors are a popular choice for modern bathroom designs. Unlike traditional shower doors, frameless shower doors do not have metal frames around the edges, giving them a sleek and clean appearance. Here are some important things to consider when choosing custom frameless shower doors:

  1. Measurements: The first step in ordering custom frameless shower doors is to contact a professional to come and get measurements for your free estimate. We will make sure to measure the height, width, and depth of the shower opening. We will also need to take into account any irregularities in the walls or floor.
  2. Glass thickness and Style: Frameless shower doors come in different glass thicknesses, ranging from 3/8 inch to 1/2 inch. Thicker glass provides greater durability and can support heavier hardware, but it can also be more expensive. With this in mind, most heavy glass enclosures in residential spaces are 3/8ths thick and are plenty durable for most any project. The glass can be made in many different styles including, Low Iron, Rain Glass, Acid Etched, Sand Blasted, and Cast glass.
  3. Hardware: Custom frameless shower doors come with a variety of hardware options, including hinges, handles, and towel bars. You can choose from different finishes such as brushed nickel, chrome, or polished brass to match your bathroom decor.
  4. Installation: Installing custom frameless shower doors can be more complicated than installing traditional framed shower doors. It is best to hire a professional installer who has experience with this type of installation.
  5. Maintenance: Frameless shower doors are easier to clean than framed shower doors because they do not have metal frames that can collect soap scum and mildew. However, they still require regular cleaning to maintain their appearance. Use a non-abrasive cleaner, generally something with no ammonia, and a squeegee to keep the glass clean and streak-free.
