3 Things You Don’t Know About Your Shower Door

shower-door-researchA gorgeous shower door completes a bathroom, but it’s an investment, and you’ll want to be sure you’re choosing the right shower door for you. Precision Glass has some quick facts you need to know when selecting the perfect shower door.

Shower Doors Aren’t Water Tight

Most people realize their shower curtain isn’t perfectly water tight, so they avoid excess water near the opening of their shower. However, sometimes homeowners remodel their bathrooms with plans to add a shower door, and don’t realize they still need to be careful!

While a shower door will stop most of the water from your shower from escaping, if you’ve got a shower head directed straight at the opening of your shower – curtain or door, water will end up on your floor. Make sure you install and point sprayers and shower heads away from your shower door.

Custom Made Makes All the Difference

Your shower is unique, which means your shower door also needs to be unique if it’s going to fit. Not only will a cookie cutter shower door look strange next to your beautifully designed shower, it simply won’t fit!

A custom made shower door is the only way to go if you want a shower door that you’ll be happy with for years to come. Because there aren’t standard sizes for showers and shower doors, the pre-made options you see at the big box store will leave you frustrated…and probably leaking.

You Will Notice Your Shower Door’s Edges

Many homeowners get so consumed in the big picture plan for their bathroom remodel, they forget to consider the details. (Just one of the reasons you want to go to a specialty shop for help.) For example, our customers often don’t realize that they can decide what the edge of their frameless shower door looks like.

Traditional glass edges get darker as they get thicker, which some homeowners don’t like. Thankfully, there are options out there that offer a lighter, clear edge, like our favorite, Starphire Glass.

It’s hard to know what questions to ask about a product you only buy a handful of times in your life! The best way to make sure you get the shower door you want is to work with the experts. Give Precision Glass a call at (816) 781-0087.
