So you’re considering some upgrades to your shower. It’s a pretty good idea when you consider how important it is to keep yourself clean and all the wonderful benefits, both mental and physical, that come along with it. You probably have some questions about the process though. How does it all work anyway?
Getting a Quote
To start with, you’ll need to get a quote. The good news is that requesting a quote is free. This is an important first step, since it’s important to make sure that what we’re able to do for you is in line with your budgeting needs. If you’re on the fence about exactly what you want, having quotes for different options can make it easier to make up your mind.
Preparing the Space
Once you’ve decided to go ahead, it’s important to make sure the space is prepared for shower glass. Think about it. Glass is heavy, much heavier than, say, a shower curtain. Shower glass also tends to be held in place with fairly minimal hardware. Because of these factors, the glass is going to need extra support from the walls in comparison. You may need to add extra support to your walls in the form of 2×4 blocking, perhaps even your ceiling in order to make sure that the glass has the support it will need.
Installing the Doors
The good news is that at this point, you don’t really have to do any more work. Technically you could do this yourself if you had the time, tools, and inclination, but it’s pretty tricky and one slip up could be enough to land you with a pile of glass shards instead of a beautiful shower glass enclosure. Instead of dealing with that mess, leave the installation of the shower glass and the doors to us, the professionals. We’ll handle the measurements, the installation of the hardware, walls, and doors, and any caulking that needs to be done.
Once you’ve made the choice to go with shower glass, the biggest things you’ll need to decide on are your budget, how to make sure the glass will have the support it needs, and what you want it to look like. That’s the beauty of going with shower glass professionals. We take care of the heavy lifting associated with the installation process so you can just sit back, relax, and get ready to enjoy your new, beautiful shower glass.
