Measure Three Times, Tile Once

One of the biggest issues we’ve witnessed in our years installing frameless shower doors in the Washington D.C., Maryland, and Virginia area comes from issues with homeowners and contractors improperly laying bathroom tile. Here are some words of wisdom to remember as you prepare to build your dream bathroom.

bathroom_tileYour Tiles Matter
Tile is often the baseline for most shower enclosures. The most important step in the process of tiling your bathroom is creating a level surface on your shower walls. Because glass is usually cut in a straight line, obtaining a straight edge is critical to shower door that opens seamlessly. Tiling your wall correctly the first time is a whole lot cheaper than tearing it out and re-tiling!

The Thinnest of Margins
To achieve a sleek look without putting your bathroom floor at risk of accumulating water, precisely measuring the surrounding tile is the name of the game. Our margin of error couldn’t get any slimmer. Measurements come down to literally as much as one-eighth of an inch. Being wrong in one direction or another can hinder the process and require extra time, sometimes weeks, to get the right size glass manufactured and one your shower. The worst part about that scenario means not being able to shower in your bathroom for all that time!

Carpentry 101
A great lesson to implement when working on your bathroom (or on any project in general) is to measure three times before executing an action. Tiling, woodworking, hanging blinds – no matter the task, the same principle applies. Being accurate with your measurements is of the utmost importance when getting the job done right.

To ensure improper measurements don’t happen when Maryland Frameless Showers installs your fixture and glass doors, owner Jim Long personally measures the size of your shower enclosure. For reasons we’ve discussed in this post, getting it right before putting the work in is critical to success.

Great service, great prices!
I called several local MoCo companies and none compare to the services I got from MFS. Don’t waste your time shopping around, MFS is the best.

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! The price was fair and no one tried to “upsell” me products that I did not need. Our new shower looks fantastic and I highly recommend this company.
