Visitors to our Dallas showroom who are in the market for frameless shower doors often ponder this burning question: is a pivoting door or a sliding door the best option?
Here are some helpful facts to help you decide.
Pivot Shower Doors
A pivot door is one in which there are hinges and the door swings out to open. Some larger showers have a double door entrance. A pivoting door obviously requires room for it to open, so if you are working with a small or cramped space then this type of door will probably take up too much precious room.
With the downturn in the housing market, Dallas residents are choosing to remodel their existing homes instead of purchasing a new home. Most remodels generally start with the master bathroom.

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.
