If you’re upgrading your shower enclosure, the number one question is probably “how much do glass shower doors cost?”
Is it cost-effective?
Actually, it can be.
Today, you’ll learn how much you might spend on a new glass shower door, what impacts the cost, and how to install and maintain them.
How much do glass shower doors cost?
Shower doors can cost anywhere from $500-4,000.
But here’s the deal:
On average, people spend around $1,200-1,500. However, there are a lot of variables that go into that price. From design to the style to the size of your shower.
What impacts the cost of your glass shower doors?
Whether you want textured, clear, or frosted glass, the design will impact your overall cost.
If you have a narrow shower stall and only need one piece of glass, then it will be less expensive than two large sheets or more. This is one of those things that doesn’t really change, but just keep in mind the size of your shower when budgeting costs.
There are a lot of different shower door styles to choose from and depending on whether you get a frameless shower door, or a sliding shower door, the cost will be affected.
This depends on the glass company you work with, generally. Be sure to ask how long installation takes and if labor is included in the initial estimate.
DIY or Hire a Pro?
When it comes to installing your new glass shower doors, it’s best to hire a pro.
Installing a shower door is an involved process that requires a specific knowledge. If you’re not trained, it could be dangerous. Tempered glass is heavy, needs to be a very specific size, and requires specific placement.
Hiring a professional is the way to go.
