Talking About Residential Doors

Adding A Frameless Shower Door To Your Bathroom

Upgrading your home with a new shower enclosure can be an important upgrade to make to the property. In addition to providing your house with a more comfortable bathroom, it can also reduce the amount of water damage that may occur from water splashing out of the shower when someone is using it.

A Frameless Shower Door Should Be Replaced If The Glass Suffers Significant Damage

The glass that is used in a frameless shower door is designed and manufactured to be extremely durable. Yet, this does not mean that this is a type of material that will be impervious to damage. In particular, it is often the case that these enclosure doors can suffer damage from collisions with surrounding objects. This is especially easy to do if the shower door is placed too close to the toilet, cabinets, or other hard objects. If the shower door suffers a deep crack in it, replacing it may be the only effective solution. Otherwise, the entire panel may be at risk of failing as a result.

Adding A Shower Enclosure Will Only Involve Minimal Changes To The Bathroom

If your bathroom does not currently have a shower enclosure, this may be a feature that you are wanting to add to it. While it is often necessary to remove the old tub to install one that can support the use of a shower enclosure, this may not require major structural changes to the bathroom. Rather, the previous tub or shower unit can be removed so that the shower enclosure can be installed. Depending on the size of the tub and shower enclosure that you are installing, it can be possible for this work to be completed in as little as a day. However, if you are considering having a shower enclosure custom-made for your bathroom, it can take longer for it to be made and shipped to your property or your contractor's office.

Leaks Around The Shower Door Should Be Repaired As Soon As Possible

A frameless shower enclosure will normally be extremely resistant to the formation of leaks in it. This is due to powerful gaskets that are installed along the perimeter of the shower enclosure door so that water will be unable to seep through the gaps that may be present in this part of the enclosure. However, these gaskets can fail at some point, which may allow large amounts of water to leak out. Luckily, this can be an easy repair to make that will successfully prevent water damage from occurring as a result o the moisture leaking out.
