Signs You Need to Replace Your Glass Shower Doors
As years go by, your glass shower doors will inevitably show signs of wear and tear. From physical damage such as leaks and cracks to small annoyances like squeaky doors and rusting hardware, your shower may be telling you that it’s time to give your bathroom the upgrade it deserves. If you notice any of these telltale signs of age, it’s time to call Golden Glass and consider new frameless glass shower doors.
Your frameless glass shower enclosure, when installed and working properly, will keep all water in the shower and off of your bathroom floor. If you’re experiencing puddles when you walk out of the shower, then it may be time for new shower doors. Over the years, your door may have warped, loosened, or been subtly damaged, failing to provide the same tight fit that it once did. If you have leaking water from your shower, it’s time to invest in new frameless glass shower doors.
One of the most obvious signs that you need to replace your glass shower doors is visible damage to your existing shower enclosure. Cracks, chips, pits, and scratches may seem like just a minor cosmetic issue, but they can harm the structural integrity of your shower door and pose a serious danger. Especially if these chips occur around the edge of the shower door, it could leave you susceptible to bodily harm if you aren’t careful. If your glass shower door is chipped, scratched, or otherwise damaged, it’s best to invest in a new frameless shower enclosure.
Door doesn’t close properly
Similar to a leaking shower, a shower with an improperly functioning door can require shower door replacement. Your glass shower doors should open smoothly and silently. If they drag on the floor, squeak as they open, or require jiggling to open and close, they likely have alignment problems and require repair or replacement. A misaligned shower door could allow leaking to occur, or the door may even come off entirely, posing a safety hazard to your family.
Rusty & discolored
If you’ve scrubbed and scrubbed your frameless glass shower door but it’s still cloudy and discolored, you likely need a new frameless glass shower enclosure. Soap scum and stains that are allowed to build up over time are extremely difficult to remove from the shower door, creating an eyesore and a functional problem. The minerals in soap scum can soak into the glass and weaken it, so this discoloration is a good reason to invest in new frameless glass shower doors.
You don’t need to wait for functionality problems to upgrade your bathroom. If you have a framed shower door or a tub with a curtain, you may want to upgrade to frameless glass shower doors for cosmetic reasons. Outdated styles can make your bathroom feel smaller, more cramped, and less relaxing. Upgrading to a more modern frameless glass shower enclosure will make your bathroom appear larger and even increase its resale value if you plan to put it on the market one day.
By opting for frameless glass shower doors, you can open up your space and make your bathroom look and feel bigger than it really is. Durable, lightweight, and easy to clean, glass shower enclosures from Golden Glass will create a modern, streamlined look that pairs well with any home design.
