People who are considering updating their bathroom decor should think about installing a frameless shower door. While these doors are expensive, they are well worth the cost. Frameless doors are easy to clean and require little to no maintenance.
The modern frameless shower doors have far more advanced adhesives than they had in previous years. Due to this it is highly unlikely homeowners will need to perform maintenance in order to keep the edges of the door sealed properly. However it is important to hire a professional to install the door. Homeowners who attempt to install the door themselves may find that they do not completely the task properly. This could lead to both maintenance and repair jobs being needed. A seasoned glazier will be able to permanently mate the edges and/or corners of these doors. Pinching pennies when it comes to installation is not recommended as it could lead to more expensive problems with the door in the future.
Ideally all homeowners will need to worry about is keeping the glass of the door clean. As these doors are costly homeowners will want to ensure that they last a long time. Those who are hesitant about spending this kind of money on a frameless door should think about how much other shower systems will cost them. Old shower curtain and sliding door systems have a lower initial cost than frameless doors. However these systems will need to be replaced far more frequently. Over the years this will work out to be more expensive than a frameless model. It is also important for homeowners to note that frameless shower doors do not have issues with mold and mildew like shower curtains do.
If the shower door is installed correctly and made out of quality materials homeowners should never have to employ the services of a glazier ever again. The best way to ensure that this happens is to hire a qualified and reputable glazier. This can be done by checking the qualifications of potential contractors. It is also essential for homeowners to see some references before they sign any contracts. Some homeowners go as far as visiting homes that the glazier has worked on in the past. The reality is that there are many disreputable companies out there. Some of these companies overcharge their clients and/or provide a less than stellar service. These contractors can be avoided by homeowners doing their due diligence.
Generally the price of the unit and installation is what holds owners back from installing a frameless shower door. Buyers need to understand that these units are good value for money. They are also stylish and will improve the overall look of the bathroom. Most buyers will find that these doors will increase the value of their home when and if they decide to sell. These doors can be purchased online and offline at a number of home renovation stores. As this is a large purchase buyers should only buy the item from stores they know and trust.
