Durable and long lasting: Shower doors are a good investment as with periodic cleaning they will stay new. The glass or metal that most of them are made out of retains a timeless look that can be easily incorporated into any bathroom remodeling project you may undertake in future. Shower doors have retained their popularity because of their functionality, ease of cleaning, and durability.
Basco Shower Enclosures carries a line of bi-fold shower doors that you can customize to an extent. For example, you can get your door size will be 67 inches high but you can choose a width of between 23½ inches and 36½ inches as the height. You may also choose from glass types such as cascade, clear glass, fluted, heirloom, obscure glass or rain. The clear glass and rain options cost $21 more than the obscure glass door while the cascade, fluted and heirloom options costs $90 more. If you select a silver finish, you will pay no extra, but if you select a gold finish, expect to pay $65 more. You may also add aqua glass protection for $66. Without any extras, this design costs about $550.
There are many manufacturers that carry sliding doors. You can either have them professionally installed or find a shower kit that lets you do the job yourself. Many doors fall into the $300 and $600 range although you may find a few that cost more or less than this amount.
Frameless shower doors are typically made with a thick glass that`s supported with heavy-duty hinges on the wall and shower. Because they don`t use the support a frame, frameless doors must have a strong connection to the hinges. When installing one, it`s important you secure the hinges as tightly as possible onto the door. If it`s too loose, it may not offer enough support to hold a heavy, frameless shower door.
If you really want your shower to look its best, you should consider installing a frameless door for the shower. These doors are free-standing and don`t require the support of an aluminum frame. The result is a higher-quality, more durable and overall better-looking door.
Hinges - Custom shower glass doors rely on hinges that are strong enough to support ½ inch glass. But when only 3/8 inch glass is used for the door, you`ll find that the hinges operate better, easier and longer. Why? It`s simply because they`re not taxed or burdened to their limits.
