Why the Cost of Frameless Shower Doors Varies So Much

There are many options available these days for frameless shower doors and a variety of features to choose from, some of which can raise the price of your new frameless shower enclosure. However, the design and size of your bathroom can also impact shower door costs. 

Bathroom Size and Shower Design 

Extra-large showers will have higher labor needs and will require more materials, making it a more expensive project compared to an install for a small bathroom. However, bathrooms that have a unique or complicated design can also raise the price, even if the bathrooms is fairly small. 

Shower Glass Thickness 

Frameless doors feature shower glass that’s much thicker than what you’ll find on framed doors. 

The tempered glass used for frameless glass shower doors varies in thickness. Thicker glass can impact the overall cost of the fabrication and installation of the door. The two thicknesses commonly used  for high-quality frameless shower doors is ⅜” and ½”. High-quality tempered glass will improve the durability and longevity of your all-glass shower. 

Custom Doors 

Custom doors are designed to specifically fit your unique bathroom. A glass contractor will meet with you to discuss bathroom design options, measure your shower and bathroom, and help you choose a frameless shower door and enclosure that will complement your bathroom and work with your budget. When you choose a custom door over an off-the-shelf model, you’ll have more design options to choose from, including glass type such as etched glass, clear, ultra-clear, or frosted, the hardware used, and more. 

While custom doors tend to be more costly compared to a standard off-the-shelf model or a framed shower door, it comes with many benefits. With a custom door, you’ll get a door that not only blends well with your bathroom and shows off the beautiful tile in your shower, but you’ll also get a door that you know will fit your existing shower or new shower enclosure perfectly, because it was specifically designed for your bathroom. 

Are Custom Glass Shower Doors Worth the Higher Price Tag?

When you’re choosing a new shower door for your bathroom, quality matters. The chances of encountering leaks due to a poor fit are high when you purchase a shower door from a local home improvement store.
