The number one problem that we see with Framed Shower Enclosures is the shower door failing, we go out on service calls about this issue every week. So how does this happen? Well over time the hinge eventually wears out. More specifically, the metal fatigues along the length of the hinge and cracks. The structural integrity of the hinge has now been compromised and will only get worse over time. Ultimately, if not serviced properly the door will begin to tilt and eventually fall. I’ve even seen it where the door has failed and fallen on the home owner!
