There are thousands of shower door companies and contractors willing to do installations for you. Before you decide on someone to do an installation, make sure that you check a few things off of your list.
All complex frame-less enclosures should be manufactured with 1/2" glass. It is not advisable to mix glass thickness on any given enclosure. A seller who advocates a 3/8” door and ½” panel may be doing so to compensate for lower quality hinges, which lack the capacity to carry a ½” door.
“Smooth as glass.” It’s a cliché, but it’s also a bit deceptive. Glass is not actually smooth, not all of it that is. One of the places in the home that inferior glass shows itself after a few years is on your shower doors. Years of moisture, corrosive cleaning chemicals, contact soaps and shampoos and water flowing over it will degrade the glass on normal shower in just a few years.
To most people, glass is an impervious solid that doesn’t corrode and will always look the same as the day you bought it. That’s not true. Glass is a porous substance. Harsh cleaning products, heat and humidity can corrode glass over time, making once clear glass hazy and murky.
