Shower Enclosure Info

Shower Enclosure Info

As a homeowner in the market for a new frameless shower enclosure, you have plenty of questions.

May I have a “ballpark” estimate over the phone?
Yes, you may. We would need the dimensions of the shower enclosure. The price would be a rough estimate only and we would need to visit your home for a FREE estimate to provide the actual price. Often, we will measure the shower before the tile work is complete, so you can plan your budget and know what our best offer will be. Final measurements MUST be taken upon completion of tile installation.

What types of hardware are available?
We have three main hardware colors: chrome, brushed nickel, and oil-rubbed bronze. Please view our photo gallery for examples of what is available to you.

What is the lead time for the installation?
The lead time is roughly 7-10 business days from the date of order.

Is there any kind of warranty?
We can’t offer a warranty for broken glass for obvious reasons. However, we do have a one-year warranty that covers leaks and any adjustments needed. All showers must be regularly cleaned to ensure the clarity and beauty of your new shower lasts for years and years.

As always, we welcome you to call Marisol, the shower coordinator, at (702)418-9060, Monday-Friday 7:30 am-3:00 pm. She will be able to answer any questions regarding shower enclosure.

In this blog, we would like to dive deeper into the world of showers and review some of the most common layouts of a glass shower enclosure. Designing a new bathroom can be a challenging task and the right layout is very important.

There are also a few things to remember when laying out a new shower:
  • Be sure the tile contractor properly frames the wall with 2×4 studs where the door can be attached to. This will ensure that the door can be properly attached to the wall. We do not do any type of framing or any tile work. We do have companies that we can refer you to who are licensed, bonded and insured just like us. It is very important to always use a company with a Nevada State Contractors license. If you have any questions about who is licensed and who is not, refer to the website www.nvcontractorsboard.com.
  • When possible, it is always best to hinge off a wall and not off the glass. While we do install glass to glass hinges on shower doors, they run into size limitations and additional costs.
  • We use only the highest quality, heavy-duty hinges for all our showers, but there are still size restrictions due to the weight. The door cannot be more than 36 inches wide. So, when designing the layout keep that in mind.
  • Glass comes in many thicknesses for our frameless showers. We offer 3/8 and 1/2-inch-thick glass. The most common is 3/8. Do not be fooled by a thinner, cheaper glass.

When our technicians go out to your home to measure for a shower enclosure, they make sure they measure all the walls including out of square walls properly so the shower glass fits in perfect with no problems. Using a level and a laser projector that shoots a straight red line that helps our technicians to see which walls are out of square and where to measure.
