Mirror Installation – to clip or glue?
Clipped up mirrors are easier to remove in the future. Glued up or “floating” mirrors can possible be ripped off at a later date but typically leave damage to the wall.
Are frameless shower doors safe?
Yes, it’s true… shower door glass can shatter. While it’s not typical, it’s also not uncommon. If a shower door does shatter, it will do so into a million tiny pieces rather than large ones. Minor cuts and damage can result but at least it won’t remove any toes or fingers.
Where can I find replacement parts for my shower door?
Great question with a not so great answer. Shower door manufacturers are terrible at putting their name on their product. Most manufacturers buy their glass and metal from different suppliers.
The best place to get parts for your door is from the company your purchased it from. If you are building a new home, be sure to keep a list of suppliers where your builder received his products from.
If you don’t know where your shower door was purchased from, then may the luck of the Irish be on your side. Taking a picture of the part you need and calling/visiting local glass shops would be your best bet. I can look at a part right away and tell if it came from our shop or not. Sometimes, parts can be interchangeable, but not always. Spending the small amount of money to give it a try can sometimes be better than buying a whole new door.
