The type of frameless shower curtain, shield, or door you install can make a big difference in the look of your bathroom.

Here are some traditional options and a couple of unusual ideas you may not have considered:

Vinyl Curtains

Vinyl curtains are an inexpensive option. Depending on the design you choose, they can make a conservative, bold, or whimsical statement. Vinyl curtains do have drawbacks though.

Keep Your Shower Glass Sparkling!

Showerguard
With a few tips, your shower glass can look as good as the day we installed it!

Over time, Shower door glass  will accumulate soap scum, this is a fact but proper cleaning is necessary to keep the glass looking as beautiful as the day Alamo Glass installed it. We recommend a few simple tricks as outlined bellow:

Always wipe down the glass after every use. This may sound like a lot of work, but it will eventually become a habit. I do not mean you have to use glass cleaner and wipes, simply use a squeegee after you are finished taking your shower. Once I get out of the shower I wipe down the glass with my damp towel, this works as well.

I would recommend using glass cleaner and paper towels once a week.  Any cleaner for glass should work well. We offer an excellent glass cleaner here in our shop , made by one of our manufacturers CRL.  Stop by our showroom to purchase some. Your favorite glass cleaner will work also.
