Unlike traditional shower doors, frameless glass shower doors are just just that…..- frameless.
Because they don’t have a metal frame, the glass is thicker, usually ¼ inch thick or greater. With the heavier and thicker glass, they will slide better on their tracks for better operation. Frameless Glass Shower Doors also create a more upscale look than a glass door with a frame.
Another benefit, is that they are easier to clean. Without a frame, there is less chance of soap or debris deposits. Just a simple swipe with a squeegee after your shower, is enough to keep the glass clean.
The great things in home improvement are the almost unlimited options and types of products that can be used in your bathroom remodeling project.

As contractors, we always want the public to hire us to do the job the right way. Safe, up to code and built to last using quality products. We do however enjoy an occasional DYI show or two. DYI shows inspire people to want to have work done to their homes. Sure it sometimes educates you enough to do it yourself, taking us out of the equation but it also helps the phone ring on our end. It’s never as easy as it looks on TV and sometimes doing it yourself cost more money in the long run, especially if mistakes were made or the wrong product was used.
We love Bath Crashers on the DIY Network. Check out their website here.
