Psst. Let us let you in on a little secret. Before you start a glass shower door remodel, you have to be prepared. There are a lot of things to think about – from budget to design. But here are a few tricks of the trade that you should consider before you get started:
Upgrading your bathroom with a new glass shower door is exciting! But it can also become daunting. Once you start researching, you could fall down a rabbit hole of options and things to consider. Don’t let that happen to you! Let us help you streamline your decision process with these four simple tips on choosing a new glass shower door.
You would be amazed at how a few upgrades using glass can change the whole look of your bathroom. Not only will your bathroom look great, but it will also add resale value to your house. From adding glass shower doors, to installing big mirrors, to frosting your windows – it’s a win-win.
One common complaint about glass shower doors is that they are hard to keep clean. Hard water, soap scum, humidity and heat can all have damaging effects to glass over time. University Park and Highland Park are areas that we quite often see glass that has been damaged over the years due to the effects of hard water. Guardian Industries solution to this problem is a product called Shower Guard.
Shower Guard glass is different from ordinary glass due to Guardian’s patented ion beam process which protects the glass during the manufacturing process. This technology is not a spray on solution that will only wear off over time. This is a permanent solution where the glass is sealed during the manufacturing process which leads to a beautiful glass shower door that stays beautiful shower after shower with minimal cleaning.
This is not a self cleaning product. You still have to wipe the shower down with a soft cloth and one of the many glass cleaning products on the market. Think of it like a teflon pan, it still has to be cleaned but it is easy to make it look brand new again.
Shower Guard glass comes with a 10 year manufacturers warranty. If the Shower Guard glass ever becomes damaged to due to soap, water etc… during the 10 year period, Guardian Industries will replace the glass at no cost to the original owner.

Why Choose Frameless Shower Doors
Help keep your shower doors bacteria and germ free. The frame is a deposit area for dirt, dust, and a breeding ground for germs. In a frameless shower door, there is no metal area to collect the particles, and your bathroom can be cleaner and free from worrisome bacteria.
The glass area on frameless shower doors is much easier to keep clean with no areas present to collect any sediment. Continue reading Frameless Shower Door Benefits for Homeowners
Glass tabletops serve as the focal point of the space, complement the decor and amplify the light in the room when utilized correctly.
Seating Showcase & Complement Theme
