Edmonton, AB Shower Door Installation

In-Home Consultations

An eye-catching shower door or enclosure can serve as the centerpiece to your bathroom’s aesthetic appeal. Conversely, a damaged or unsightly design can draw unwanted attention from visitors and present a potential safety hazard.

At Glass Doctor of Edmonton, our service professionals will conduct an initial assessment to better understand your vision and walk you through the planning, design, and maintenance process. Once we’ve determined your needs and established a budget, we’ll begin our pre-installation process of evaluating your bathroom’s existing infrastructure, taking measurements, and accounting for ventilation.

We’re adamant about providing upfront fixed-rate pricing for all projects – once our service professionals provide a final estimate, that’s the price that you’ll pay. No hidden fees or surprise charges. As long as your project stays the same, so does your total. If your blueprint changes, we’re always transparent about additional costs and get approval before performing additional work.

If you’re ready to take your shower or tub design to the next level, schedule an in-home consultation with Glass Doctor of Edmonton today!

Choose Your Glass Shower Door Style

When considering which shower door or tub enclosure design is best for you, you should evaluate the aesthetic style you’re aiming for, as well as any space or accessibility limitations you’ll be working with. You’ll also want to take into account whether you prefer sliding or swinging doors; sliding doors are often favored for smaller bathrooms where space may be an issue.

Let’s take a look at some of our most popular selections here at Glass Doctor of Edmonton:

Framed Doors:

  • Metal frames surround the glass panels to offer structural support.
  • Pros: Durable, cost-effective, and better sealing options
  • Cons: Design limitations, less natural light, and framing can be more challenging to maintain

Frameless Doors:

  • Provides a contemporary, minimalist design with no visible frame that promotes a sense of openness in your space.
  • Pros: Modern feel, enhanced natural light, and easy to clean
  • Cons: Generally more expensive, heavier, and don’t mesh with all bathroom layouts

Sliding Doors:

  • Doors slide horizontally along tracks, eliminating the need for swinging clearance.
  • Pros: Ease of access, space savings, and customization options
  • Cons: Potential for off-track issues, restricted opening width, and seal maintenance

Rectangular Enclosures:

  • A classic enclosure selection featuring straight sides and right angles for a more functional appearance.
  • Pros: Space efficiency, versatility, and accessibility
  • Cons: Limited design variety, maintenance of glass, and possible space constraints

Hexagonal Enclosures:

  • A unique geometric design with six sides in the enclosure that helps add a stylish touch to your bathroom.
  • Pros: Unique aesthetics, design variety, and versatile placement
  • Cons: Sometimes more costly, potential for water splashes, and space considerations

Customized Glass Shower Doors

In addition to your overarching door or enclosure design, Glass Doctor of Edmonton offers a variety of add-ons to further personalize your project. These extras can achieve anything from enhancing privacy to adding that final cherry on top that pushes your vision to the next level.

Some of our most frequent customization requests include:

Standard Glass Patterns: Opting for standard glass patterns on your door is a practical choice for those desiring a balance between functionality, aesthetics, and affordability.  Frosted and textured patterns deliver an added layer of privacy while maintaining an elegant appearance, making them suitable for shared bathrooms or those seeking a more modest touch. A few of our most popular options include Aquatex, Everglade, Rain, and Obscure.

Heavy Glass Patterns: Choosing a heavy glass pattern for your shower or tub reflects a preference for luxury, durability, and a premium aesthetic. These selections are particularly appealing for individuals looking to invest in a long-lasting and visually striking feature in their bathroom. Patterns can include intricate designs, textures, or etchings. Some of our most in-demand varieties are Bamboo, Monumental, Master Carre, and Satin.

Colored Glass: Colored glass adds a vibrant and expressive element to your space, allowing for the display of personal style and creativity. Beyond its aesthetic impact, colored glass also offers enhanced privacy. Tinted or opaque hues can create a more secluded showering experience while still allowing diffused light to permeate the space. Common designs include Bronze, Azuria, Smoke, and Starphire.

Professional Shower Door Installation

Once you’ve selected your design and additional features, we’ll order the materials, which typically arrive within 10-15 days. We’ll work with you to schedule a suitable date and time for an appointment and then begin the installation process. Our service professionals are masters of their craft – from start to finish, installation generally takes just one day.

A fast installation doesn’t always equate to a quality installation, but with Glass Doctor of Edmonton you can be assured that it does. Our service professionals employ a strict protocol that has proven effective for thousands of past shower and tub projects, and we’re confident it will work for yours as well.

  • First, we prepare the area by ensuring it’s free of any debris and check that the walls and floor are level and plumb.
  • Next, we’ll install the U-channels or side tracks to hold or slide your glass panels.
  • We’ll then place your glass, sliding them onto your tracks or securing them using brackets.
  • This is followed up by applying silicone urethane to seal all joints and prevent water leakage.
  • Then, we’ll focus on the mounting connection, where the door is attached to the surrounding structure, and door hardware such as hinges, handles, and rollers.
  • Lastly, we’ll double-check our entire installation for quality assurance and provide you with aftercare instructions for best maintenance practices.
