Sliding versus swinging shower doorsThe best type of door for your bathtub or shower enclosure depends on the amount of space available and the type of enclosure that you want. If you like swinging doors, for example, you must have enough space in the room to open it all the way. Similarly, if you prefer sliding doors, the tub or enclosure must be long enough for two glass panels.

Additonal Shower Door Considerations
Building materialsThe best shower doors or tub enclosures for your bathroom depend on the location of the studs and the type of building materials used on the walls. To give heavy glass walls or doors extra support, our specialists install two 2-by-4 studs wherever glass meets the wall.
Expert measurementsTo ensure the perfect fit, glass specialists will take expert measurements of your bathroom, even if you’ve already taken measurements of the space. This allows us to give you a more accurate estimate and prevent project delays.
Sufficient ventilationBathrooms without proper ventilation are at risk for mold growth and moisture damage. When we install new shower doors or an enclosure, glass specialists ensure there is at least 12 inches between the ceiling and the top of the feature to promote good airflow. They also take into account the enclosure’s style and door type.
Shower head typeA shower head should not spray water outside of an enclosure when you open the door. If your current shower head doesn’t spray water appropriately, your glass specialist will recommend choosing a new one.
Drain locationThe floor within the enclosure or tub will have a slight slope that directs water toward the drain in the floor. This prevents water from pooling and causing moisture-related problems.
