Why do some Shower door companies try to sell us a framed shower door?

Framed shower doors are easier to measure. Some companies use less experienced technicians to measure and install there shower doors.

Does your company guarantee your shower enclosures not to leak?

No, we do not guarantee our total frameless shower enclosures not to leak. There are responsibilities to owning a total frameless shower enclosure. Never point the shower head at the door. Applying a rain shower head is a great way to decrease the chances of water escaping.  We can apply plastics to make a better seal but water can still come out. Proper dam pitch is a must! If the pitch of the dam is not towards the inside of the enclosure,  water WILL come out. On dams that are flat we can install a threshold to minimize the water leakage. The dam must be installed before installation of the door,  for clearance reasons.   Water should never come out where there is a silicone joint.

Can your company take out our existing shower door and Install a total frame-less shower door without replacing tile?

Yes, We take out your existing shower door and then clean the silicone and old grout off. We re-grout where the old frame was and also buff the tile to clean it. When we measure for the frameless shower, we measure to place the glass over the existing holes so that you will not see them.

Do you do shower doors for the handicapped?

Yes, we have done a lot of shower enclosures for the handicapped. Shower enclosures that are total frameless are perfect for the handicapped because there is no frame on the bottom and we can make the opening as large as the tile will allow.
