Beautiful Glass Shower Doors
If you have just gutted your old bathroom and spent thousands of dollars on new tile and marble etc. you should consider giving Just Glass a call before getting new shower doors. We spend a lot of time with homeowners helping to design showers for their new bathrooms.
Today in the shower door industry “less is more”. The less metal and hardware you see the more the focus is on your beautiful tile work. The larger the room becomes, the brighter the room becomes and the glass is significantly easier to clean without all the aluminum of which the older units were comprised of.
We can work you through the following questions, which may seem simple but if not considered properly you will have a door only opening half way because it is hitting the vanity or commode. You may place the door directly across from the stream of the shower head which can cause the unit to lose water onto the floor. (See our design tips and FAQ’s below)
If we get the opportunity to work with you in the development stage we can help to make the process easier. Remember we are the last people in your bathroom. We have seen all the mistakes people can make.
So call us up front, stop in our showroom and we can go over your ideas and give you important information to make your shower look and function beautifully. (See our design tips and FAQ’s below)

Choosing The Perfect Shower Door (The Value of the Showroom)
There are many different names for shower doors in the marketplace. From fully framed ,to semi framed, frameless, barn door,glide Doors kinetic doors, sliding and bypass doors. Many in the industry will use this terminology to describe a door or setup while in your home. They may show you nice pics, But they may not show the the subtle differences between the style of the doors. The glass samples we carry and color chips do not really show what your shower will look like.
That is why we always encourage our customers to come into the showroom, see the difference between a door with 3/16” thick glass and one with 3/8” thick glass. Open and close them, feel the difference.
We understand price is always an issue, so you should try to educate yourself as best as possible and know why one door costs more than another.
Along with installing new shower doors, we also will make repairs and clean up your exiting units. Sometimes it’s just a matter of elbow grease or a new piece of hardware or removing and replacing your caulk. We can make that shower look New even though it isn’t,
so give us a call and we can give you a quote.
One of the most important things to consider when selecting the type of shower door you’d like to use is whether or not the shower uses heavy glass. Since heavy glass weighs considerably more than thinner glass (commonly used in framed and semi-frameless shower enclosures), it’s important to have adequate support within the wall to sustain the weight of the glass. Have you ever seen a shower door that doesn’t shut completely or maybe even rubs when closed? These are signs that the shower door has a heavier glass than the wall or mounts were built to support and is an extremely important factor to consider if you’re thinking about purchasing a frameless shower.
An equally important factor to be aware of is how much space you have inside your bathroom. Space constraints may cause you to change your mind from selecting a swing-line shower door to a sliding shower door. Considering issues like this can sometimes be overlooked. It’s important to consult an experienced shower door shop with a good reputation to avoid mistakes like these.
Frameless Shower Doors
Frameless showers and shower doors stand out from other shower enclosure types both in beauty and quality. By using heavy glass often with thicknesses from 3/8″ to 1/2″ tempered glass, these frameless showers don’t have framing which allows a sleek, stylish look that’s sure to leave a lasting impression on anyone who sees it.
At Just Glass, we work with some of the finest shower glass and hardware manufacturers to be able to offer a wide variety of styling options to help your frameless shower be unique while still matching the other decor in your bathroom. We do it ALL! We are frameless shower door and enclosure experts and take pride in helping you design the shower of your dreams.

Shower Doors are Not Watertight
Shower Enclosures, when properly installed, are designed to prevent leaks under normal shower conditions. Excessive water pressure or directing the shower spray directly at the door do not represent normal shower conditions and can result in leaks.
The amount of water that can escape your shower also varies depending on the type of shower. A heavy glass swing door shower enclosure with no polycarbonate seals will allow more water to escape under normal conditions than a fully framed swing door shower enclosure.
Just Glass Shower Door DESIGN TIPS and FAQ’s
–Frequently Asked Questions
How long will it be before my shower is installed?
Once your tile work is completed, give us a call and we will be out to your home typically within 24 hours of your request, to take our final measurements and collect a deposit. At this time you will also sign off on your showers specific details, (Layout, Hardware, Hardware Finish, Glass Thickness, Protective Glass Coatings, etc.) With this signature and your deposit, we can now begin fabricating your Beautiful custom shower enclosure. Get Excited!! You are approximately 14 business days away from installation!!!
How long will the installation take?
Expect your installation to take about 1.5 hours per panel of glass that’s involved with your unit. If you just have a single door with no extra panels your installation should last roughly about and hour and a half. A standard two panel enclosure should take roughly about three hours, etc, etc, etc. At Just Glass we pride ourselves on our ability to shape our enclosures to fit your walls like a glove, since no wall is perfectly straight, level or plumb we measure and cut all of our glass out of square to match your walls exactly, we focus all the way down to the 1/16th of an inch, to guarantee a PERFECT fit every time, with seamless reveals. For this reason, every installation we do is different from the last, so we stress that these time frames are merely and approximation and can vary per job. We like to schedule all shower appointments to begin between 9-9:30am on the date of your choice. The earlier the better, the main reason being, is that after installation is complete you will need to wait a full 24 hours before opening your door and turning on the water, doing this will garuntee your silicone has dried properly giving you the best seal possible.
Will my shower leak?
Good question! Properly designed and installed showers under normal shower conditions will have minimal water seepage. For added protection, we also add clear vinyl seals at the bottom and either side of the door to help keep the water inside the unit. Last but not least, a clear bead of silicone will be ran in specific areas to serve as your last layer of defense, allowing your enclosure to fend off water from getting into the most elusive escape routes. However! Under direct pressure from the shower, water will penetrate the seals. Again we refer back to the design phase. Water sprayed directly at a hinge will seep through as well. Handheld sprays should not be directed in these areas when showering or cleaning, as you will get the same results. Keep in mind your shower is not a fish tank. Also when exiting your shower and the door is open water can run down onto the floor, this is not a leak, if this is a problem, we advise you to keep a squeegee inside the shower to eliminate that water before opening the door.
Will my shower need a header?
There are times when some panels are just too big and will need additional top support to limit the movement of the panel and make it safe for the occupants. The better question is, can I deal with the noise and vibration and shudder of the door closing onto an unsupported panel. The bigger you get, the further the panel is from the wall and the more insecure it becomes. In no event would we ever install an unsafe product, but when some of these big panels fall right inside the safe limits as the industry adheres to, there will be movement in the panel. Once the unit is installed we cannot give the unit any more support without remaking the door or panel at additional cost to you. We suggest you stop by our showroom to open and close a few doors to get a realistic idea of what to expect. Also at that time you can speak to our experienced professional staff to go over further ideas and explore all of your options!
How do I clean my door?
There are many different cleaning agents out there. Read the labels and make sure there are no abrasives in them. Better yet on our website read about the many glass protectants available, to help keep your doors from spotting and staining. These products work like rain x does on your windshield, except they all come with 10 year or more manufacturer warranties. There are no weekly or monthly applications needed just clean per manufacturer instructions. In my estimation they are particularly good investments especially for the individual who does the cleaning of the shower. In one case we installed a three panel shower and within three weeks the customer called to complain that the glass protectant wasn’t working. We notified the manufacturer and they went to the site to check. Sure enough the protectant was on only two of the three panels. They sent us a new panel and we went back and remove the old and replaced it with the new one. We haven’t heard from then since.
Are you insured, how long have you been in business?
Yes we carry general liability insurance and worker’s compensation to protect you and our employees. We have been in business for 30 years. Do you have a showroom? Yes, along with 15 shower doors on display. Our showroom also has beautiful mirror and other glass related displays. Stop in or you can make an appointment with our sales dept.
