Shower Doors & Tub Enclosures

High-quality, durable shower doors are one of the most valuable improvements you can make when remodeling your bathroom. As the largest feature in the bathroom, the tub or shower enclosure will be the first thing people see when entering the room. Of course, a quality door is also a functional item. Properly sealed baths prevent water from escaping the tub area and causing damage to floors.

Whether you're looking for a simple framed door or a more artistic model complete with carved glass designs, there are many factors to consider. That's what makes having a glass specialist perform the evaluation and installation so important. The experts at Glass Doctor® of Grand Rapids, MI, have plenty of experience in installing a variety of shower doors and will walk you through the process from the initial evaluation about what type of door to choose, to the final installation and investment protection.

Our Initial Consultation

Upon arriving at your home, our team will evaluate the walls in your bath to determine the material. Different types of material, such as drywall or tile support varying amounts of weight. This allows us to figure the shower door weight limit. Next, we'll take precise measurements of the enclosure. This is critical when it comes to providing a door with a water-tight seal. The measurement will also play a role in the type of door that will be possible and the final cost.

Evaluating current ventilation and determining any necessary improvements comes next. A bathroom's worst enemy is improper ventilation. If moisture is allowed to remain in the bathroom after a bath or shower, problems such as chipped, pealing paint, buckled drywall and mold issues can occur. If improvements are called for, we'll explain our recommendations and find the most economical way to fix the problem. 

As a final touch, we'll check your current shower head. One of the most common causes of a leaky enclosure is a shower head that sprays water to the sides.  Often, this isn't even noticeable, but if it happens, water will escape as you enter the shower.

The Enclosure Design Process

Once all the technical evaluations have been made, we'll sit down with you and help you choose the best type of shower door to fit your particular needs and budget. We'll go over some remodeling ideas, and provide you with a portfolio of shower doors and accessories from which you can choose your style and design. We use only the best vendors in the business to ensure quality products. Our specialists will ensure you know exactly what you’re ordering before we begin.
