What's the number one upgrade I can do in my bathroom?
You can probably guess. There is no better way to upgrade your bathroom than by adding a beautiful and modern glass shower. New glass shower installation is the best way to bring your home into the 21st century.
I am planning a major bathroom remodel. What's your advice?
Hire skilled professionals. Depending on your project, you might need a plumber, electrician, tile setter, cabinet installer, and of course a pro glass installer. We can help you recommend contractors that we have worked with before.
Remember, a skillful tile layer can make budget tile look elegant, and on a flip side, a bad tile layer will make the most expensive tile look cheap.
Tips for laying out your new shower.
Most common glass shower configurations for your inspiration.
Can you convert my bath tub into a glass shower enclosure?
Yes, we can. If you don't use your bathtub, this is definitely an idea worth consideration. A walk in shower is a perfect option for retirees as well.
Is a permit required for adding a glass shower?
Most likely yes, but may depend on your project. Check with us for details. We'll take care of pulling all the permits.
Can we install a tempered glass glass shower enclosure?
Absolutely. In fact, for your safety, bathrooms require use of tempered glass. We only use tempered glass for our custom glass showers.
Is tempered safety glass shatter proof?
You might be surprised to find out, that the answer is "no". The term tempered implies that the glass will not break into sharp shards. Instead, tempered glass is designed to break into dull round pebbles, thus keeping you safe. But tempered glass is in fact stronger than regular glass.
Is there such a thing as shatter proof impact resistant glass?
Yes, there is . The two most often used terms are toughened and heat strengthened glass. Toughened glass is the toughest of them all. Heat strengthened is less so.
And there is also laminated glass, which has a layer of PVB or EVA sandwiched between two planes of regular glass (glass in your car is made that way). Laminated glass is perfect in situations where there is a risk of shattering.
When you get in touch we can help you choose proper glass for your need.
When is the tempered glass required?
The building codes may differ, but it is usually required in the situations where someone can kick or punch the glass by accident. So if your glass extends to the floor, or is right next to a door, it likely needs to be a safety glass. Bathroom glass must always be tempered.
What are common reasons for why glass may shatter?
It could be an improper installation that puts undue stress on the glass, or an inclusion/defect in the glass pane itself. But the most common cause is a sudden and large change in temperature - keep that in mind when directing cold water on warm glass or the other way around. Nevertheless, shattered shower glass is a very rare occurrence and requires a perfect storm of circumstances. Generally, you are very safe in your shower.
What's the deal with low-iron color neutral glass?
Traditionally the glass has a slight greenish-blue tint to it. This is due to a minuscule amount of iron that has been used in its production. In recent years a new color neutral glass has appeared on the market that has no hue to it whatsoever. Fittingly, it is called color neutral glass. Whether to use it is an aesthetic choice. Keep in mind that the low iron glass can really blend into the surroundings, making it easy to run into, so it is not to be used without a consideration. Custom etching and frosting can help with invisibility as well.
What's the difference between acid etched, frosted, sandblasted, and satin glass?
These are all different types of non-transparent glass. Name difference is due to a different process used. Some processes require treatment of the entire glass surface, while others allow for stenciled designs (may be intricate or as simple as a single visibility/safety stripe).
How soon will my glass be ready?
Stock glass panels can be installed as quickly as 1 week from receiving an order, while custom enclosures generally take 3-5 weeks. In some cases, lead time can be increase due to custom finishes or the complexity of the enclosure.
Can you design and install a frame-less glass shower enclosure? A frameless shower door?
We absolutely can. If you want a top of the line shower, this is the one you want to get. Frameless glass showers look absolutely stunning.
You also have an option of headerless and semi-frameless glass enclosure designs.
What are the advantages of frameless designs?
Asides from aesthetics, frame-less glass designs minimize risks of mold growth, and simplify cleaning due to their more more simple design. What's not to love!
Can framed glass showers look elegant?
Absolutely. The luxury trend is definitely towards frame-less glass showers. But hardware used in framed showers is evolving as well. And that means you will be able to chose just the design that you like. The bottom line is that the new hardware in unobtrusive, and can actually serve as a designer touch. Not to mention the cost savings you will enjoy choosing a framed shower installation.
What's a neo angle shower design?
Any shower design that features 135 degree angles instead of or in addition to 90 degree angles when viewed from a top. Another words, a shower with diagonal lines when viewed from a top.
How much will my custom shower cost?
All we can give you here is a real ballpark figure. The showers we install go from $600 to $8000. The good news is that there is something for every budget. Get in touch to get your quick quote and to get your questions answered.
Are there any standards when it comes to custom shower sizes?
For the most part no. Hence the custom showers name. We can design your custom shower to uniquely fit your bathroom space. There are some rules of thumb, though - such as glass shower doors should be 26-30 inches wide (minimum of 22" and maximum of 36").
A typical frameless glass enclosure height can range from 72 to 78 inches, but can be as high as 96 inches. Greater heights require special engineering considerations that may require thicker glass to support the increased weight of the glass itself. Stock heights typically cost less than custom height enclosures.
Minimum width of a tempered glass panel is 4 1/2".
How much time does glass enclosure installation take?
Most shower doors take only an hour or two to install. Larger full size frameless shower enclosures usually take no more than than a day to install.
Sliding glass doors or hinged swing glass doors?
We can design and install either one. Both have their pluses and minuses that we can discuss.
Can you design and install a curved shower glass enclosure.
Yes we can! Please contact us.
Money saving tip: Consider leaving those vintage finishes
The point of your bathroom remodel might be a fresh, new look, but some things are easier to replace than others. In older homes, wall tiles may be very difficult to remove. The difficulty in removing these can cause labor costs to skyrocket. Instead, you might want to keep the vintage tiles and spend your money on other designer bath elements. Framed correctly, vintage finishes such as tile can contribute to the feel of your remodeled bathroom.
Does your glass shower need fixing? Do you need glass shower repair? (glass replacement, broken glass, broken sliding glass, loose glass)?
If your glass shower needs any kind repair, we can definitely help. Framed glass is usually 1/4" thick, while frameless glass is usually 3/8" thick. 1/2" glass may be required in certain situations (such as extra tall enclosures). Call us for details.
