Why Invest in Glass Shower Doors?
Many homeowners are investing in glass shower doors. There are several benefits to doing so.
Gives the Illusion of a Larger Bathroom Space
The truth is, bathrooms aren’t the biggest room in a house. In some older homes, they may be downright tiny. A glass shower door, especially a frameless one- allows light in and opens up the space.
Have you ever stepped out of your shower and noticed an instant puddle on the floor? Water easily escapes flimsy shower curtains, creating a slip and fall hazard for you and your family. Having a shower door creates a tight seal that keeps water where you want it- in the shower.
Customizable to Your Size and Design Needs
Glass shower doors are customizable to any size. They give you a chance to show your style. You can use clear glass for open, airy space or patterned glass for privacy.
You may also choose a framed door, available in various finishes. You’ll be amazed at the many choices you have.
Easy to Clean
Shower curtains help breed a lot of mold and mildew in the tub. However, a glass shower door not only dries faster, but they’re also super easy to clean with soap and water.
Increases the Value of Your Home
Just like other renovations in the home, a glass shower door increases the resale value of your home.
What are the Signs You Need a New Glass Shower Door?
The shower inside your bathroom is probably one of the most important features you take advantage of. If you own a glass shower door, you’ll love the wonderful benefits it brings to your bathroom. A glass shower door opens up the space and reflects light throughout the room.
When your shower door becomes dirty, you clean it. However, what if those stains do not go away? Or what if the glass becomes damaged?
Can you just keep scrubbing at those stains or fill the cracks? Or do you need a brand-new door instead?
Below are some of the signs that indicate you need to replace your shower door.
Cracks or Chips in the Door
As all glass, the glass that comprises your shower door is prone to cracking and chipping. If the damage spreads or becomes too severe, your entire door could shatter.
Sometimes, glass technicians can fill the small cracks and chips. More often than not, though, the shower door needs to be replaced to avoid unnecessary damage and risk for injury.
When you notice cracks and chips in your glass shower door, especially big and long chips, you need expert advice. Call our technicians at Lebanon Glass as soon as possible. We will recommend a small repair or a total replacement depending on the damage.
If it’s your first time to have a glass shower door installed, it likely looked clear. It may have even shone and sparkled in the light. However, as time passes by, your glass may look discolored. It may even look cloudy and grungy.
Usually, the moisture from the bathroom allows mold and mildew to grow throughout your shower. These spores may combine with soap scum and mineral deposits and can discolor the glass. In the same way, hard water stains and firm buildup can affect the appearance of the glass negatively.
You can use some cleaners to remove the buildup. However, if the buildup is too thick or hard, even the toughest cleaning solutions won’t work. In these cases, we recommend installing a new glass shower door.
Rust or Corrosion on the Framing
The glass isn’t the only component of your shower door that you need to worry about. You should also think about the framing, including the door frame, hinges, and track of the glass door. The glass door could break from the supports, fall, and shatter.
Look for patches or streaks of red and brown along the door’s track, hinges, and framework to prevent this from happening. Furthermore, take note of any flaking or missing pieces of the frame. When you notice these issues, talk to our team and schedule a door and framework replacement.
