Keep in mind that not all glass shower doors and enclosures are suitable for all bathrooms, so in order to avoid disappointment or unnecessary costs, there are a few things you need to look into: 

Materials Currently in Use

Washroom walls are usually constructed of either drywall or tile, which are different in the amount of weight they are able to safely support. The condition and location of your wall's studs will also play a role in determining the best course of action when contemplating the installation of heavy glass shower doors. None of these issues rule out the safe installation of a new shower door or tub enclosure, but it may mean that you need to have the walls reinforced before you go any further into your planning.

Dimensions

The size and shape of your washroom will play a part in the decision making process. Elaborate, framed glass shower doors may look great in a large bathroom but overpower a smaller one. In order to best determine the right enclosure for your room, our installation specialists take accurate measurements. 

Proper Ventilation

If your tub or shower enclosure is not adequately ventilated, the condensation will build up, wreaking havoc on your washroom's walls and ceiling. To prevent problems with peeling paint or wallpaper, or the growth of mould and mildew, our experts check the ventilation. If your bathroom is fully tiled, we offer a selection of ventilation kits designed for the removal of steam.

Choice of Shower Heads

In you are looking at a major overhaul of your existing washroom, the choice of shower head may seem like a minor detail. However, when the shower head is being used with glass doors, it is important to choose the correct one and ensure that it is angled properly to prevent flooding if the door is left open while the shower is in use.
