A: If you find rust or corrosion on the metal, a crack or discoloration on the glass, if the door won’t close or doesn’t fit properly, or you find yourself mopping up after each shower you need a new Pacific Shower Door! Also, if you are remodelling a bathroom or building an all new custom bathroom, give Pacific Shower Door or our nearest dealer a call. Please note, in order for us to give you an accurate estimate, the walls must be finished (i.e. Tile or Marble installed).  

Q: How do I know which enclosure will be best for me?

A: Please use the gallery on our web site to narrow down your choices.  There are three main categories Framed, Semi-frameless and 10mm Frameless.  10mm Frameless is the most expensive option and it is not water tight however it is considered the most desirable by interior decorators and designers. Framed and Semi-frameless have much more aluminum, lighter glass, take half the time to install and are usually about 60% less than Frameless.   Framed are the most durable and water tight and an excellent option for high usage areas where the door may be susceptible to long term wear and tear.  Semi-frameless means the door does not have a frame around the top and the catch (handle) side everything else is framed.

Q: What is the difference between a Framed unit, Semi-Frameless unit and a Frameless unit?

A: Framed units are the more traditional style of shower doors which include aluminum framework around the glass. Frameless units provide a more contemporary open look as they use a minimal amount of framework around the glass. Both units offer the same amount of safety and stability, so the choice between the two is usually based on taste not necessity. Frameless units are available in 3/8” and 1/2” glass.
