Glass Shower Door Installation
Most glass shower enclosures should be custom designed and installed to make the most of existing bathroom space. Glass companies usually offer a few different design styles to choose from.
For example, frameless shower doors, sliding shower doors, corner doors, doors and panels, and around-the-tub enclosures, are just some of your options. Our glass specialists are happy to assist you with the design process, repair, or replacement in order to find the best option for your home.
Below are a couple of factors to consider when planning an installation:
- Wall composition. You need to know where studs are located within the bathroom walls and whether these walls are constructed of drywall or tile material. This is necessary to determine if your bathroom can carry the glass door’s weight.
- Dimensions. You’ll need exact dimensions, or else the installation process won’t go smoothly. We don’t advise taking these measurements on your own. It’s best to have a professional glass company verify the correct dimensions.
If your glass shower doors break, the first step is to establish safety. Tempered glass shower doors break into blunt pieces, which rarely cause damage. But if you have untempered glass in your bathroom, cleanup can be dangerous and result in injuries. It’s important to call a professional glass company for expert help with glass removal and repair.
Minor dents and scratches usually only require glass repair, but it might just be time for a full upgrade. If your shower doors are looking a bit rough, you might want to take some time to explore new styles, rather than choosing glass repair.

Glass Shower Door Replacement
If you intend to replace just one pane or a portion of your shower doors, you should contact the shower door manufacturer to find out if sourcing replacement parts is an option. If you can’t find replacement parts, contact your local glass company for a custom glass solution. A specialist will be able to fully match your previous door’s size, pattern, and shape.
There are times when glass repair can’t save your doors, though. If this is the case, replacing the whole unit becomes the best option. A glass company can help you create a custom glass replacement that is either a replica of your previous shower doors, or a new design. After all, it feels good to try a new look sometimes, and upgrade your home’s style.
