Frequently Asked Questions

What is a glass shower enclosure?

A glass shower enclosure, also referred to as a glass shower door, is a wonderful way to update and modernize any bathroom. Glass shower enclosures are made of tempered glass and are very durable and aesthetically pleasing. Many Raleigh homeowners choose to upgrade their bathroom by having a glass shower door or enclosure installed because it not only replaces the need for shower curtains or tile, but can make a small bathroom feel larger.

The cost of glass shower doors can range from $500-4,000. The variable range is explained by the size of glass shower door you need, the type of glass used to create the shower door or enclosure, as well as the cost of labor. However, the typical price range for a glass shower enclosure is $530-1,350. To request an accurate estimate of a glass shower door or enclosure that is specific to your bathroom, contact us at  919-772-1007 or fill out our free estimate form.

When it comes to frameless shower doors, there is a common misconception that they are not as durable as their framed counterparts. In reality, frameless shower doors can actually be just as durable, if not more so than framed ones. This is thanks to their high-quality construction and use of heavier glass. Without the metal frame to cover up potential weak points, frameless shower doors are able to incorporate thicker glass that can withstand more force and pressure. In addition, frameless shower doors also often feature reinforced edges for added strength and stability.

Not only are glass shower enclosures a modern feature, but they amplify the natural light in your bathroom. In addition, glass shower enclosures can instantly makes your bathroom feel more spacious.

Many Raleigh homeowners choose to have a glass shower enclosures installed because it’s much more sanitary and easier to clean than shower curtains and tile. While shower curtains and tile collect mold and bacteria, glass shower enclosures wick away bacteria. To increase the sanitation in your shower, our Raleigh glass shower installers at Glass Solutions suggest adding Microban to your glass shower enclosure to help prevent the growth of bacteria and mold.

Other benefits of a glass shower include its custom dimensions, safety features (i.e. it discourages water from escaping the shower), and it adds value it adds to your home.

When it comes to shower doors, one of the best options for easy cleaning is a frameless shower door. These doors are made of a single panel of glass, with no metal framing to trap water and grime. With just a simple wipe down, all traces of soap scum and mold can be removed.

The most common shower door size is 60 inches by 72 inches, but it ultimately depends on the dimensions of your shower. Custom shower doors can be made to fit any size shower, and some people opt for a smaller or larger door depending on their preference and space limitations. Keep in mind that the width of the shower door will also determine the width of the shower opening, so consider how much space you want for entering and exiting the shower when selecting a size. Ultimately, selecting a shower door size is a personal decision that should accommodate both your functional needs and design preferences.

A frameless shower door is made entirely of glass, with no metal frame for support. This type of shower door gives an upscale, modern look and allows for maximum visibility in the shower. In contrast, a framed or semi-frameless shower door has a metal frame that adds stability and may include additional design elements such as handles or accents. Both types of sliding glass shower doors offer the benefits of easy operation and space saving installation, but the ultimate choice comes down to personal preference and desired aesthetic. See more about the differences here.

When it comes to glass shower doors, warranties can vary greatly depending on the manufacturer. Some manufacturers offer limited lifetime warranties on their products, covering any glass defects or hardware failures. Others may only offer a one-year warranty or a limited warranty that covers certain parts or issues. It is important to carefully review the warranty before purchasing glass shower doors to make sure you are fully protected in case of any problems with the product.

It can be frustrating to step out of a shower and see water spots and cloudy buildup on your shower door. Fortunately, there are several ways to prevent this from happening. When showering, try to avoid using products that contain moisturizing oils or harsh chemicals, as these can leave behind residue on the shower door. Additionally, regularly wiping down the shower door with a squeegee or microfiber cloth can also help remove excess water and reduce potential buildup. For added protection, you can also apply a shower door treatment product that creates a barrier against water spots and clouding. Please read our in-depth article for tips on how to properly clean your shower.

The most common type of shower glass is tempered glass. Tempered glass is heated to a high temperature and then rapidly cooled, creating a strong and durable surface that can withstand high impacts. It also shatters into small, blunt pieces instead of sharp shards, reducing the risk of injury. Regardless of the type chosen, shower glass should always be installed by a professional to ensure proper adherence to safety codes and prevent accidents.

When it comes to shower doors, taller is usually better. A taller shower door means less chance of mess, offers a more spacious feeling, and allows for easier entry and exit while showering. Plus, if you have tall family members or plan on showering with your partner, a taller shower door can prevent any uncomfortable ducking or crouching. However, it’s important to consider the space in your bathroom before installing a tall shower door. Measure the height of your shower stall and take into account any overhead fixtures or obstructions that could prevent the full use of a taller shower door. If you need help deciding on the right size, reach out to our team at  919-772-1007 and we can help.

Simply put, it refers to the ability of a surface to resist the growth and spread of microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi. In shower products, this often means preventing the buildup of mold or mildew on shower curtains, tiles, or grout. Antimicrobial protection can improve shower hygiene, keep your shower cleaner for longer, and create a more pleasant showering experience.

A shower made of glass may seem like a great addition to your bathroom, but it’s important to consider the potential safety hazards as well. Glass can easily break or shatter if hit with a hard object or under enough pressure. A great way to lower these safety risks is to choose tempered safety glass, which is designed to break into smaller, less dangerous pieces. It’s also a good idea to inspect your shower door and handles frequently for any signs of damage or deterioration.

When it comes to shower design, glass enclosures have become increasingly popular. Not only do they offer a modern and stylish aesthetic, but they also have practical advantages. Glass shower walls allow for more space in the shower, giving you room to move freely without the constraints of a shower curtain or traditional doors. In addition, glass is easy to clean and maintain—no more dealing with mildew on shower curtains or cleaning calcium buildup on door tracks. And for those who want to add some luxury to their shower experience, glass shower walls can also be fitted with integrated steam options for a spa-like experience at home. So if you’re looking for a shower upgrade, consider installing a glass enclosure for an elegant and practical option.
