Glass shower doors are generally made from tempered glass, which is not only much stronger and less likely to break than traditional glass, but also less hazardous if it does break. (Tempered glass breaks into small chunks that are not as sharp as traditional glass.) Shower doors can also be made from laminated glass, which is even safer. Laminated glass looks just like normal glass, but it’s actually created from two sheets of glass with a sheet of clear vinyl in between. Even if the glass breaks, the shards will still stick to the vinyl.
Once safety concerns are addressed, it’s time to customize your shower! Many homeowners prefer the perfectly clear shower door (the better to show off the tile and fixtures when the shower is not in use), but some are less enthusiastic about that idea. The good news is, you can opt for a frosted, patterned, or even colored shower door. There are even privacy glass doors available.
Finally, it’s time to consider maintenance and upkeep. While glass shower doors are relatively easy to keep clean, you can take extra steps to ensure they sparkle for years to come. Talk to us about options to seal your new shower door. The right seal can keep soap scum, shampoo residue, and other unsightly elements from seeping into the pores of the glass. The result will be a beautiful shower door that is easy to keep clean!
