Testimonials

David was awesome. Friendly, informative, professional. Doors went in on time, and they work, and look beautiful. Highly recommend.
~ Marta & Carrie

They did a tremendous job, taking great care with the small details. It looks great and has been working flawlessly now for nearly a year. I’m in the process of another job and will certainly use them again! Compared to some shops you could hire, they were a bit more expensive, but you certainly get a premium installation with them and it seems well worth it given the costs of fixing mistakes.

Frequent Questions

How much does AN ENCLOSURE cost?

Specialty glass and cutting services vary greatly depending on your installation.  Every installation we do is custom and measured for an exact fit.  If you would like to contact us we can provide an accurate estimate of your project cost.

WHAT DOES FRAMELESS MEAN?

Frameless glass enclosures typically are made of thicker tempered glass (3/8” or 1/2”) and do not have a metal framing attached to the glass on all sides.  It can sometimes be confusing because metal channel is frequently used in some frameless shower installations to secure the glass to the shower surfaces. However, as an option in most cases, a wall-to-glass clamp can be used as the mechanical fastener.   Some people prefer this look and consider it to look more ‘frameless’. For more information, please contact us.

HOW IS THE GLASS IN A FRAMELESS ENCLOSURE SECURED?

Construction grade adhesive (anti-bacterial silicone) is used to adhere the glass to the surfaces of the shower area.  We also use a mechanical fastener such as aluminum u-channel or wall-to-glass clamps to secure the glass to the shower surfaces.

WHAT IS TEMPERED GLASS?

Tempered or toughened glass is a type of safety glass processed by controlled thermal treatments (tempering furnace) to increase its strength compared with normal (annealed) glass. Tempering puts the outer surfaces into compression and the interior into tension.  Such stresses cause the glass, when broken, to crumble into small granular chunks instead of splintering into jagged shards as plate glass (a.k.a. annealed glass) does. The granular chunks are less likely to cause injury.

CAN A GLASS SHOWER ENCLOSURE BREAK?

Yes, they can break.  Our frameless shower doors are made from tempered glass, which is designed to shatter into small pieces as a safety precaution.  Contact us for additional information.

WHO INSTALLS THE GLASS ENCLOSURES?

Our skilled glaziers/installers are full-time employees with full benefits.  Our installers are courteous, professional and respectful of your personal property.  They wear booties and cover their workspace and keep things a tidy as possible. Our company is fully licensed and bonded.  

I HAVE AN OLD HOME WITH A DIY BATHROOM REMODEL OR GABLED CEILINGS AND OUT PLUMB WALLS.  CAN I GET A GLASS SHOWER ENCLOSURE?

No problem.  We can almost always find a custom solution design.  Every installation we do is custom and measured for an exact fit.   We’d love to have a look at your specific needs. Give us a call.

DO FRAMELESS SHOWER DOORS LEAK?

Frameless enclosures are not water tight.  They have small gaps where glass meets glass.  With the use of some nearly invisible clear polycarbonate seals (vinyls) we can mitigate water escaping.  We keep gaps as small as possible, as we custom cut each piece of glass to fit. Contact us for additional information.

HOW DO I KEEP A GLASS SHOWER LOOKING CLEAN?

The best way to keep shower glass looking clean and clear is to squeegee after each use and clean it weekly with vinegar and water solution.  Never scrub glass with scrubbers or granular cleaners they can scour the surface of the glass leaving the glass looking ‘milky’ or ‘cloudy’. Cleaning with Clorox®, Tilex® or other harsh cleansers can degrade the adhesives that secure the glass.  We offer glass treatments that can assist in keeping the glass looking fantastic for year to come.  Please ask about our glass treatments.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET A GLASS ENCLOSURE?

Lead-times can vary based on scope and volume.  We strive to have the quickest turn around time from measure to install as possible.  Please ask about our current lead-time for your project.

HOW DO I KNOW WHAT IT WILL LOOK LIKE?

We have a beautiful full showroom with a large variety of full-sized displays.  It is educational and helpful to see the options for glass and hardware. It is also great to operate the actual enclosures.  Please come by anytime, we’d love to discuss your project. No appointment necessary.
