Glass shower enclosures have gained quite the popularity in new construction and bathroom renovations across Canada. Many families are moving towards installing shower glass instead of shower curtains to modernize their space and add a luxurious look to it. Alder Glass & Aluminum offers a wide variety of shower doors and glass tub enclosures to Winnipeg and the surrounding areas. We have products that will fit any budget from leading manufacturers such as CRL and more. Whether you are looking for a basic framed shower door or an elaborate custom glass enclosure, the experts at Alder Glass will guide you through the entire process, from design to budget to installation.
Some factors that go into what kind of glass tub enclosure is best for you include:
Where is the shower or tub located in the bathroom? Are the walls made of sheetrock or tile? Do the walls have double or triple studs? There needs to be a 3 or 4 degree slope on curb so the water stays in the shower. The answers to these questions help determine the maximum weight of the glass that the walls can support.
This sounds simple, but it can make a difference when you’re planning your shower enclosure. Be sure the shower head will not spray water out the door when it is opened with the water turned on. Water should stay inside the enclosure.
What may look like a rectangular opening may not be exactly rectangular once it is measured. Enclosures that are not plumb, level, or standard lengths may cost more in materials and installation.
If the glass shower enclosure is too high and the ceiling is too low, the shower enclosure will not get enough ventilation. Without ventilation, moisture will build-up, paint can peel and mould may grow, especially in a sheetrock ceiling. If you are interested in a steam room, special kits and ventilation panels are available.
Here are some of the reasons why people choose to install shower enclosures in their bathrooms:
The addition of a sleek frameless shower enclosure brings in the clean architectural lines that help define contemporary décor trends.
Glass effectively traps water inside the shower stall which allows you to keep your bathroom dry.
Shower doors and enclosures can be customized to meet your needs and décor goals.
Modern options and innovative solutions make it easier to take care of shower glass so that maintenance is not a problem.
