How long does it take to get a new frameless shower enclosure from MY Shower Door?
Obtaining Project Specifications Quickly
One factor that can greatly affect the timeline of installing your new frameless shower enclosure from MY Shower Door is the ability for us to quickly obtain your project specifications. Before your enclosure can be ordered, we must obtain exact measurements of your shower opening, in addition to finalizing your enclosure design and hardware selections.
For this purpose, we at MY Shower Door schedule an in-home measuring appointment with ALL our customers. These appointments typically occur within a few days of you contacting us, or in some cases, on the same day. During this appointment, our team will carefully measure your shower opening, taking special note of any out-of-square walls, out-of-level surfaces, etc. Ensuring that we have exact measurements is the key to a perfect fit for your new frameless shower enclosure.
Furthermore, to expedite the process, during the in-home measuring appointment, our team will also assist you in finalizing the enclosure design as well as the hardware selections for your project, such as handle style and hardware finish. Once the measurements are obtained and your selections are finalized, our team will then have everything they need to proceed with your order.
Prompt Scheduling of the Installation Date
Another factor that can affect your project timeline is scheduling the installation date for your shower enclosure. As a last step before leaving the in-home measuring appointment, our team will schedule with you the exact installation date for your shower enclosure. We take pride in being able to provide our customers with an exact installation date at the time of the in-home measuring appointment. Although the actual time between the in-home measuring visit and the installation date may differ slightly based on your location, at MY Shower Door we strive for a 2-week timeline on average, whereas industry standards can range anywhere from 4 weeks up to 12 weeks.
The Goal: Get Your Glass Faster
An additional factor that can affect your project timeline is the sourcing of the glass and hardware. Many providers of glass products source their glass from overseas, which, due to supply chain issues, can often result in dramatically increased lead times for your project. However, at MY Shower Door, our glass is manufactured by our sister company, D3 Glass, located in Fort Myers, Florida. Therefore, we can procure your glass much quicker than those companies that do not source their glass locally. Moreover, the hardware used by MY Shower Door is proprietary and is also stocked locally. This allows our showroom teams to work directly with the D3 Glass manufacturing team to jumpstart the ordering process for your shower enclosure. Additionally, our teams are able to maintain the high level of glass quality that we are known for, allowing us to consistently exceed our customers’ expectations.
The Difference: We’re Specialists
The last factor that can affect the timeline of your project is the experience of the installers. At MY Shower Door, we do things differently than other glass shops. For one, as our name suggests, we focus all our efforts on shower doors, specifically, frameless shower doors. This means that instead of installing glass for various projects, we only focus on installing glass for shower enclosures. Because of this focus, we are experts in the shower door industry. In fact, all our installers are specifically trained to install MY Shower Door enclosures. We have an extensive installation training department where our team is constantly improving their skills.
