4 Myths About Frameless Shower Doors: Debunked

When it comes to frameless glass shower doors, don’t believe everything you hear. There are many myths and misconceptions floating around from people who know nothing about the product. Many false “facts” originate from the manufacturers of typical shower doors. Instead of buying into these falsehoods, learn the truth about frameless glass shower doors. Here are four myths, debunked.

They’re Hard to Keep Clean

One of the benefits of glass shower doors is that the clean, clear glass looks elegant and adds the illusion of space to a bathroom. If the glass becomes dirty or full of soap scum, this defeats the purpose of the installation. Luckily, keeping glass shower doors clean is simple. Plenty of products exist on the market to keep glass doors looking pristine. Some doors even come with protective coatings to keep water stains off the glass. Epoxy added during manufacture makes it easy to keep the glass clean.

They Shatter Easily

Falling in the shower and shattering your frameless glass door is a fear based in fiction. Manufacturers design glass shower doors to be extremely strong and sturdy. They will not shatter from typical falls. Proper parts and installation processes will lead to a very durable door. Frameless showers can even be stronger than framed ones, as they do not contain materials that will corrode and break over time. Plus, the glass on these doors is tempered. This means if it does break, it will not shatter into sharp, dangerous pieces.

They’re Too Expensive

Many glass shower door providers offer competitive prices on the latest models and payment plan options if you can’t afford one lump sum. The cost of your door will depend on the type of door, installation method, and company you choose. When it comes to price, hardware matters. You get what you pay for with frameless shower doors. Opting for the cheapest installation on the market can lead to issues down the road. If you plan to sell your home, installing beautiful glass frameless shower doors can increase the value of your property.

They Leak Water

Most of the public does not understand how frameless shower doors work. They believe that a lack of a frame will mean large gaps between the glass and the structure, leaving room for water leaks. This is not the case. Only a poorly built or badly installed door will be prone to leaks. Professional construction and installation will result in the proper amount of slope, allowing the shower to drain instead of leak outside the enclosure. A proper frameless shower will also have straight walls, a buttress, a shower dam, and other elements to prevent leakage.

After talking with several shower door company’s, I am very glad that I decided to go with Maryland Frameless Showers. There was great communication throughout the entire process. I like that the owner, Jim, came out to measure my shower and listened to what i wanted. He did what other companies told me was not possible!
