Choose the Right Shower Installation: 3 Tips for Lovettsville Homeowners

    (Provided by ABC Glass & Mirror, Inc. - Thursday, March 20, 2014)

1. Consider BOTH practicality and aesthetics. To find that perfect glass shower installation for your Lovettsville home, it is of absolute importance to locate an item that is user-friendly and a fantastic choice in terms of style. Here are a few of the features of a highly functional choice:

  •    - The door opens easily and quietly.

  •    - When opened, the door does not hit or block access to another fixture.

  •    - The door is able to open wide and create a clear, convenient entry point.

With regard to aesthetic appeal, look for a door that enhances the room’s theme and décor plan. Consider the overall style of the door, but also make thoughtful choices when it comes to variables like glass type, handle type, and hardware finish.

2. Research factors that affect price.
Knowing what impacts the price of a shower installation, is vital for a Lovettsville home-improver. This data makes it easier for you to decide what’s most important to you and where you can compromise to save money. From most to least costly, the three basic glass shower variations are frameless, semi-frameless, and framed. Heavier glass also tends to cost more than a thinner product. Finally, you have the choice of normal glass or more expensive water-repellant glass like ShowerGuard.

3. Know which products are easiest to keep clean.
 Cleaning the shower installation in your Lovettsville residence will be more or less involved depending on what you buy. One thing to keep in mind is – less framing means easier cleaning. This is because the additional metal on framed and semi-frameless units creates more small nooks that need to be dried and cleaned. Furthermore, smooth-surface glass like clear, ShowerGuard, bronze, or grey is also easier to wash and dry than textured or etched glass. Last, think about upgrading to permanently sealed ShowerGuard glass or glass coated with ClearShield. These products resist water spots, corrosion, and the build-up of residue. These features mean that they can be well-worth the extra cost. If you are ready for a new shower door installation, call ABC Glass and Mirror, Inc. at 703-257-7150 for your free in-home estimate.
