Glass shower enclosures add elegance to any bathroom, and installing one is simpler than you may think. However, it is not a project that can be easily done yourself – even for the most experienced DIYer. It’s a straightforward process, but it requires expert professionals in order to ensure correct installation.
Find a reputable glass shower dealer
It’s a common misconception that you should find a general contractor to do the work first – in fact, you should use a reputable shower door installer. Do your research: read online reviews, learn about specific companies, and get recommendations from people you trust in order to select a reputable glass shower manufacturer.
Select the shower enclosure model you want.
A reputable Century Bathworks shower dealer will help you select the correct shower enclosure based on your needs and wants such as the size of the space, your decorating style, your budget, and whether you want a frameless shower enclosure, a semi-framed shower enclosure, or a framed glass shower enclosure.
Schedule an appointment with the glass shower installer.
The installer will come to your home to measure the opening, make recommendations, and identify potential challenges. Sometimes a specific door option may not be ideal for the space, and an expert installer will know how to suggest an appropriate alternative. This is one of the key reasons to avoid attempting a DIY installation: if you visit a big box store and find an enclosure you like, the sales associate has no way of knowing whether it will work in your space. A reputable glass shower enclosure dealer knows the potential pitfalls and how to avoid them, ensuring your project is a success.
Order the glass shower enclosure.
After consultation with the glass shower installer, the enclosure is ordered. If you selected a stock item, it can be as quick as 1-2 weeks. If you are purchasing a custom glass shower enclosure, it may take up to 2-3 weeks.
Schedule an appointment for the glass shower installation
The same installer who attended your initial appointment will return to install your glass shower enclosure. Typically this job takes less than a day to complete.If any issues arise during installation, the technician will work directly with the manufacturer to solve the problem and once completed, he or she will ensure you are satisfied with the work before the job is closed.
