When we say that a shower door is framed, we mean that the glass of the door is wrapped in an aluminum frame. Many smaller showers and tub enclosures have a framed enclosure. They are the cheapest option for shower doors – typically half the cost of frameless – as the frame provides additional support for the glass portion so the glass doesn’t need to be as thick. The installation process for framed shower doors is also easier, often requiring only one technician rather than two. These doors look great when newly installed and can last a long time.
As you can tell from the name, frameless shower doors have very minimal metal – usually only basic hardware to allow for movement. Everything else is supported by the strength of the glass itself, which is 3/8 to 1/2 inch thick. Frameless options are a great modern option when a homeowner wants to create a more open feeling in their bathroom.
The semi-frameless style of door is seen on many tub enclosures, though not in too many showers. This setup requires a bottom track, metal on the sides, and a header piece on top. There are panes of glass, at least one of which can roll from one side to the other. The panes themselves are frameless, being supported by the larger frame. With prices typically between those of frameless and framed door systems, semi-frameless can be a great option for your tub.
No matter which style of frame you choose, we can provide the kind of glass that suits your design and practical purposes. Glass can be clear or obscured. There are several different patterns of obscuration to choose from. The most popular pattern currently is called rain, which actually looks like rain dripping down.
When it comes to shower door repair, there are usually one or two things that are the issue.
In the event the glass of your shower door is broken – no matter the style or the thickness – our team can measure, cut, and install a piece to replace it quickly, so you can get back to using your shower or tub. We cut the glass for each job to fit your specific situation, which is how your shower door repair team can guarantee a quick and accurate fix – if it doesn’t fit, we’ll cut it again!
Shower hardware, being exposed to large amounts of moisture and accumulated grime, is prone to the decay that comes from repeated use and corrosion. If you’re having trouble with your shower door rolling, swinging, or closing, our team will come to where you are and perform the necessary cleaning, adjustments, or replacements to get your shower door working like new.
Every time I have had broken glass it has been a major headache. Most companies are booked out several months; some may not want to do a small job. I had one company say that to send out an estimator, it would be 2 months out. These guys were the exception to this bureaucratic nightmare. Not only were they the best-priced contractor, but I had my broken, exterior glass done within a week of calling. Now THAT is service. Thank you! – Cedric
Matt came first to check the problem then he decided to contact the door manufacturer and got additional information about performing the adjustment. He then came a second time and performed the adjustment. Matt was very professional and performed excellent work in a short time without any problem. – Angie’s List Reviewer
I can’t say enough good things about this company, but I’ll try. We have a vacation home in Welches and had to have a glass door fixed ASAP and Matt and his team saved us. They are professional, reliable, dependable and affordable. They called me back right away, provided a quote and were able to fit me in. They were on time and promptly completed the job and when they left, they everything cleaned-up. I highly recommend them! – Christine
