Ordering & Installation
The bathroom is your home’s sanctuary and one of the only places where you can truly be alone, even if it’s for a few minutes. By maximizing this room to its full potential, you’ll gain a space that feels welcoming and relaxing. With Glass Doctor® of Toms River, you don’t have to remodel your bathroom completely. In Toms River, a simple shower door installation to replace your shower curtains may be all you need to give the space an instant facelift.
Choosing the Right Shower Design
Whether you’re ready to begin a shower door installation or are curious about the process, Glass Doctor of Toms River will provide you with a free in-home consultation with one of our glass specialists. This individual learns about your needs to create the custom shower enclosure of your dreams. If you prefer something that’s already made, the specialist will show you the wide selection of enclosures available and help you pick the best one.
During the consultation and design process, the glass specialist will take expert measurements and review important factors with you, such as:
- Bathroom size
- Available floor space
- The bathroom’s building materials and stud locations
- Ventilation needs
- Shower door types
- Shower hardware, such as shower heads
After meeting with a glass specialist, you’ll receive a quote and pricing options for your shower door installation within 24 hours. Upon approval, we’ll place the order for the glass and hardware components.
Enclosure and Shower Door Installation Process
When you order a pre-made shower enclosure, we receive it in our shop within 10 to 15 days. A custom glass enclosure may take longer prepare and ship, depending on the design. After we receive all the parts, a glass specialist will call you to schedule the enclosure installation. Most installations take a day to complete, depending on the amount of preparation necessary.
The enclosure and shower door installation process includes:
- Preparing your bathroom
- Installing U-channels, which hold the glass in place
- Setting the glass within the U-channels
- Sealing the glass within the U-channels using water-resistant silicone urethane
- Mounting glass connections
- Mounting the shower door hardware
- Installing top head channels, if necessary
- Placing the shower door on the hinges
- Cleaning the glass so it sparkles
Depending on the type of enclosure or shower door that you choose, glass specialists may need to install extra studs to support the weight of the glass. If your bathroom lacks adequate ventilation, our specialists will install a proper ventilation system upon request. The specialist who works with you during the design process will discuss these considerations during the initial consultation.
The adhesives and sealants that we use take up to 12 hours to cure. After the glass specialists complete the enclosure and shower door installation, they’ll clean your bathroom so you can spend your time admiring it after they leave.
