The Perfect Shower for Your Dream Bathroom

Glass Shower Doors Ann Arbor
Are you remodeling your bathroom? 

Considering a new shower?

 

One of the primary choices in configuring your new shower door is selecting the type of glass used. There are a couple of important characteristics to consider when planning out your dream bathroom, including the thickness of the glass and any special treatments that may be applied to help keep your shower looking great over the years.  


Thickness of Shower Doors

Shower doors can come in a variety of thicknesses. Thinner glass is typically used in framed shower doors, while thicker glass is used in semi-frameless and frameless showers. In some cases, you may have the choice between two thicknesses of glass. For example, a semi-frameless sliding shower door may be available in either ¼” or 3/8” glass. Thinner glass will flex more and make more noise when used in the door. Thicker glass is more rigid.  

 

Special Treatments

Bath products and the minerals naturally found in water can leave spots and corrode the surface of your shower glass. This can leave the glass discolored and less than crystal clear.  There are a variety of treatments available for glass that address this issue. ShowerGuard® is an advanced coating that’s fused into the glass when it is being made. This coating is invisible and covers the microscopic peaks and valleys that occur naturally in the glass surface. This makes glass much smoother and provides less opportunity and  space for soap residue and minerals to collect. Because the coating is applied when the glass is made, there’s no need for reapplication, and it comes with a lifetime warranty against visible staining, corrosion, and discoloration.
