16 Essential Questions To Ask When Choosing Your New Glass Shower Enclosure

Every shower has its unique features and needs. Choosing the right New Glass Shower Enclosure for your shower makes all the difference in the world.

  • 1. How “frameless” do you want the look of your shower to be?
  • 2. How many showerheads or sprays are shooting toward the glass?
  • 3. What is more important for you…price, function, design, stability, maintenance?
  • 4. Will your glass be set on a curb (threshold) or directly on the floor?
  • 5. What color is your tile…do you want a standard, generic clear glass (greenish hue) or will it require a low-iron less green style?
  • 6. Do you have room for a swing style or only a sliding bi-pass style?
  • 7. Will your mounting surfaces be pitched properly to shed water back toward the drain?
  • 8. How tall do you want your glass to be? Will you have sufficient airflow for ventilation?
  • 9. How wide do you need your finished opening to be?
  • 10. Depending on the thickness of glass you choose, will your hinges hold the weight of the door?
  • 11. Are there proper studs behind the wall to support the weight of the door? (If you don’t know… don’t worry, we have the solution.)
  • 12. Will there be obstructions to a swing door both inward and outward? (toilets, sinks, vanities, etc.)
  • 13. Is it advantageous to have a door swing inward as well as outward?
  • 14. Will your shower be a “Steam” shower?
  • 15. What tile and substrates are used on your walls?
  • 16. Are their neighbors beside or below your shower?
