Grand Rapids, MI Shower Door Installation

In-Home Consultations

A functional and aesthetic shower or tub design can make all the difference in your bathroom’s visual and practical appeal. It can optimize your available space while providing a sanctuary for an intimate showering experience. Conversely, a damaged or unsightly design can make your space feel cluttered and present potential safety hazards.

At Glass Doctor of Grand Rapids, our service professionals will conduct an in-home assessment to determine your needs and guide you through the planning, design, and aftercare process. Once we’ve laid out a timeline for your project and established a budget, we’ll begin our pre-installment process of evaluating your bathroom’s existing infrastructure, taking measurements, and considering any customization requests.

We’re insistent on providing upfront fixed-rate pricing for all projects – once our service professionals provide a final quote, that'll be your total cost. There are never any hidden fees or surprise charges with Glass Doctor. As long as your project stays the same, so does your price. If your needs do change, we’re always transparent about additional costs and require approval before performing further work.

If you’re ready to add that ‘extra’ to your ordinary shower or tub design, schedule an in-home consultation with Glass Doctor of Grand Rapids today!

Choose Your Glass Shower Door Style

There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to shower doors and enclosures – we’ll work with you to determine your unique space requirements, aesthetic desires, and maintenance preferences. Our service professionals will be there to provide guidance every step of the way, ensuring that no considerations are left out of the equation. Ultimately, your ideal selection should strike a balance between functionality, style, and practicality to create a comfortable shower space tailored to your preferences.

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

Framed Doors

  • Feature a metal frame around the perimeter of the glass panels which improves durability, making it a reliable choice for long-term use.
  • Pros: Durable, cost-effective, and better sealing options
  • Cons: Design limitations, less natural light, and framing can be more challenging to maintain

Frameless Doors

  • Lack of metal framing provides a contemporary appearance – often made of thick glass for added sturdiness
  • 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

  • Offers large glass panels fitted into a frame – these doors operate by sliding horizontally along tracks
  • Pros: Ease of access, space savings, and customization options
  • Cons: Potential for off-track issues, restricted opening width, and seal maintenance

Rectangular Enclosures

  • Typically have straight and perpendicular sides, forming a clear and defined rectangle; provide a classic look while offering practical functionality
  • Pros: Space efficiency, versatility, and accessibility
  • Cons: Limited design variety, maintenance of glass, and possible space constraints

Hexagonal Enclosures

  • Enclosure with six straight sides and six connecting angles, forming a unique and geometrically interesting structure
  • Pros: Unique aesthetics, design variety, and versatile placement
  • Cons: Sometimes more costly, potential for water splashes, and space considerations

Customized Glass Shower Doors

Glass Doctor of Grand Rapids also offers a plethora of customization options to further personalize your aesthetic. These extras can enhance privacy or add that final touch that elevates your vision to the next level.

Some of our most frequent customization requests include:

Standard Glass Patterns: Standard glass patterns serve as an ideal selection for those seeking a balance between functionality, aesthetics, and affordability. Frosted and textured patterns offer enhanced privacy while maintaining a stylish appearance, making them suitable for shared bathrooms or those desiring a more modest touch. Some of our most popular options include Aquatex, Everglade, Glue Chip, and Reeded.

Heavy Glass Patterns: Selecting a heavy glass pattern for your shower or tub suggests a preference for longevity and a premium aesthetic. They’re particularly appealing for those looking to invest in a durable and visually striking bathroom feature. Designs can include elaborate patterns, textures, or etchings. A few of our most in-demand varieties are Antique, Bamboo, Forest, and Monumental.

Colored Glass: Colored glass offers an expressive vibe to your space, empowering the display of personal style and creativity. Aside from its decorative effect, colored glass also can alleviate privacy concerns. Tinted or opaque hues can promote a more intimate showering experience while still permitting diffused light to infiltrate your space. Common designs include Azuria, Bronze, Smoke, and Starphire.

Professional Shower Door Installation

Once you’ve identified your design and accessories, we’ll order the materials, which typically arrive within 10-15 days. We’ll collaborate with you to schedule a preferred date and time for an appointment and then begin the installation process. Our service professionals are masters of their craft – from beginning to end, installation is typically completed in just one day.

A quick installation doesn’t always equate to a quality installation, but with Glass Doctor of Grand Rapids, you can be assured that it does. We employ a tried-and-true protocol that has proven successful for thousands of past shower and tub projects, and we’re confident it will work for yours too.

  • To start, we prep your space by guaranteeing it’s clear of debris and verify that the walls and floor are level.
  • 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.
  • Then, we apply silicone urethane to seal the joints and prevent water leakage.
  • At this point, we turn our attention to the mounting connection, where the door is attached to the surrounding structure, and door hardware such as hinges, handles, and knobs.
  • Lastly, we’ll double-check our entire installation for quality assurance and provide you with maintenance instructions to protect your investment.
