Why Frameless Shower Doors...
Frameless shower enclosures from Dulles Glass and Mirror bring the ultimate in luxury to any bathroom, and represent the latest in bathroom design. Here is a quick analogy test for you: a plasma TV is to a living room, as a Viking range is to a kitchen, as what is to a bathroom? If you guessed frameless glass shower doors, you guessed right! (Well, maybe it's not exactly the perfect analogy, but you get the point.)
Not convinced? Consider how much of your life you spend in the bathroom. Between brushing, showering, bathing, shaving, applying makeup, and everything else, you're spending a LOT of time in the bathroom each week. No wonder the ancient Romans considered the bathroom one of the most important rooms in the house! And no wonder they were so willing to invest in it to make it a luxurious space...after all, if you're going to spend that much time in one room, why not at least make it as pleasant an experience as possible?
In the past, shower doors required metal frames around the edges to hold the glass in place.With such framed shower doors, metal surrounded the entire glass door, leaving no exposed edges. Because these doors were constructed of thin, relatively inexpensive glass ranging from 1/8" to 3/16" thickness, they required a metal frame to maintain their structural integrity. Durability was limited, however, and water and soap scum could easily gather in the metal crevices, leading to mildew and corrosion.
Enter frameless glass shower doors. Frameless shower doors do exactly what the name implies: they eliminate the need for metal framing entirely. These doors are made from tempered glass ranging from 3/8" to 1/2" thick, making the door sturdy and structurally sound, independent of any metal framing. Maximizing the use of glass and minimizing the use of metal adds light to the bathroom overall, creating a more open, inviting look. But beyond opening up a tight space, these enclosures add elegance and style to a room that is all-too-often overlooked.
And depending on your budget and your bathroom's design, the possibilities are limitless. These frameless glass showers can be used for both stand-alone showers and as frameless bathtub screens. Options include everything from an in-line shower doors covering one side of the shower, to four glass panels surrounding an entire shower or bathtub. You can even choose neo-angled panels, which fit in a corner and feature three sides of glass (the middle panel serving as the shower door). For the glass itself, you may opt for clear glass, low iron glass, frosted glass, rain glass, bronze glass or gray glass.
And that's just the beginning: with the frameless shower doors as the room's anchor, you are free to unleash your artistic side on the rest of the bathroom. Surround the doors with tile, marble, or granite to add depth and luxury. Add a stylish metal door handle and towel bar to create the illusion of structures floating in mid-air. Let your creativity run wild and design the perfect space to fit your lifestyle!
Concerned about costs? Don't be: while the initial cost may be greater, frameless glass doors actually work out to be less expensive than framed shower doors in the long run. For starters, they're more durable than framed shower doors and can easily be cleaned to like new condition. Thus, they hold their look and value for years. Moreover, whether you plan to sell your home in the near future or years down the line, you can likely expect an increase in its resale value, courtesy of the frameless glass doors.
Bathroom upgrades offer one of the greatest returns of investment on your home. According to Remodeling Magazine's 2010 Cost vs. Value Report, the national average rate of return is 64.1 percent. Translated, that means that if you spend $10,000 to update your bathroom, you can recoup on average $6,410 when you sell your house.
With this handy little piece of information, the cost seems marginal compared to the benefit; which probably helps explain the recent surge in popularity of frameless shower doors. As these frameless doors have increasingly been recognized as a sleek, innovative trend in home design, renowned architects have begun incorporating them into their projects. And homeowners have not lagged too far behind... Dulles Glass & Mirror reports that, while there wasn't much request for frameless shower doors a few years ago, today the demand has exponentially multiplied. Apparently, people are catching on to this little secret.
So why not turn your outdated wash room into a deliciously luxurious space where you can pamper yourself? It doesn't take much to turn your bathroom into a space where you'll actually want to spend more time: a space where you can retreat into a haven of relaxation and blissful solitude, from which you can emerge soothed, refreshed, and energized. Sound better than your moldy, not-so-fabulous shower curtain that is hiding some not-so-microscopic bacteria? You're probably right. It's time to upgrade. And when you are unwinding after a long day of work in your own private oasis that will put any spa to shame, you'll grow to have a little respect for the ancient Romans.

Just got my frameless shower this morning, everyone was very courteous. Frankie said the installer would be here at 7am-8am, they arrived at 7:15am! Very clean installation, the installers repected my home and were very nice and informative. My salesman (Ross Hillstead)was very low pressure and very attentive, I was really bad at returning his phone calls, I am glad he kept in touch! LOL Frankie Desgismen scheduled my install and hit the numbers perfectly. I will recomend Dulles Glass & Mirror to all my friends!! Thanks Guys, nice doing business with you! David

Our new frameless clear glass shower door is positively gorgeous. It brings a whole new modern look to our bathroom. The installation was on time and was flawless.

Dulles Glass is very customer oriented. Their service is excellent and they continue to follow up. They provide a time line when the glass is to be delivered and were right in that target. The installers were professional and helpful - they brought in materials so they wouldn't make a mess and cleaned up after themselves as well. If I have another project I would hire them again!

Dulles Glass & Mirror did an outstanding job on my new frameless glass shower enclosure! I had other estimates which included measurements. Dulles Glass & Mirror was far more detail oriented and cut the glass to exact specifications. Other vendors explained I would have 1/8 inch gaps. Who wants gaps in a shower?! Everyone at Dulles Glass & Mirror was focused on my customer experience throughout the process...sales...measurement..and installation. Great job! Thank you!

I placed an online order and the salesman promptly replied the following day. When the crew came to do the measurement, I decided to order a taller door and enclosure. The installation went very smoothly and the frameless shower looked emaculate. Dulles Glass & Mirror deserved perfect 5 rating for this. My only gripe was I did not get a 5% discount. When I initially placed my online order, I did not have the coupon. But when the measurement was taken and the order was placed with the new measures with a higher price, I asked for the 5% discount but did not get it.

After a thorough search for high-quality suppliers of a frameless glass shower enclosure, I chose Dulles Glass and Mirror for their competitive pricing and high-end products. The design process was straightforward working on-line and over the phone (my preference). Everyone was efficient, knowledgeable, and courteous from the sales people to field measurers to installers. The final product was exactly as ordered and installed perfectly. I couldn't be happier and would recommend Dulles Glass and Mirror to anyone in the DC area.

When I began gathering bids for the installation of a frameless glass shower door, I went through several call backs and site visits before getting quotes but with Dulles Glass, I was able to enter the frame dimensions on the internet and had a quote and the name of a representative to work with the next day. The price was a third less than other bids and through the entire process I found Dulles Glass to be responsive, courteous and professional. The door is beautiful! The installation was quick and clean. I will definitely refer my friends and family to Dulles Glass. And if the opportunity comes up, I will be using them again.

I was very impressed and pleased with how the door looked after installation. I was also impressed with the two man crew that installed the door. I looked at a number of shower door manufacturers and what you offered was superior; especially when you factor in the price. GOOD JOB DULLES GLASS & MIRROR. My only regret is, I should have gotten a towel bar on the inside and outside of the stationary panel. I didn't think about that until I used the shower. Poor judgement on my part.

We just had a new shower put in to replace our old 1993 shower and had Dulles Glass & Mirror frame us a half wall and glass door frameless shower. It has the rainglass texture so it gives some privacy but still allows me to keep the windows open for some natural light while showering. The door works great and there is no leaking. So far we are really happy with our new shower. I would totally recommend this to our friends and family.

This is the second time I have used Dulles Glass and Mirror. I was impressed enough after using them the first time that I would not consider a competitor. The staff is friendly, knowledgable, and prompt. Calls are quickly returned. Estimates were detailed and the price fair. Installation went without a hitch -- installers were on time, neat, and friendly. Bathroom showers look superb. Overall, a wonderful experience.

This is Mike and Amy Finch, in Columbia, MD. We had our install done two weeks ago by Victor and Amego. We could not have been happier with the installation and the product. Victor and Amego showed up ahead of schedule and got started right away. They were polite and professional. They made sure to keep the house clean by laying down walk rags, and were very careful not to damage any of the product. They were very detailed oriented during the installation and moved quickly an efficiently. these gentlemen should be commended for their outstanding work and polite demeanor. This was one of the best installations we have ever had done. Thank You.

We had a fantastic experience with Dulles Glass. Ross, who took my order was so helpful and talked every single detail through with me. We had a bit of a scheduling snafu, but both he and the general manager worked to get me into the schedule, which was incredibly helpful. The installers were so nice and clean and really explained how to take care of the glass. Both our tub enclosure and glass door look beautiful and feel so heavy--we can't believe the really reasonable price. I would so recommend Dulles Glass--you will not be sorry.

I chose Dulles Glass & Mirror, soley based on the reviews on yelp.com, for my custom frameless glass shower enclosure. Their communication was excellent from the start, and I got a free online estimate within 24 hrs. The price was better than other glass companies closer to my home. I put down a deposit months early so as to lock in a promotion they had at the time. Sam, my salesperson, kept in contact with me over the gap in time that I was building my addition and answered all of my questions. I threw a billion questions at him over multiple emails, and he answered each one with patience and courtesy - never making me feel like I was a burden. When it was time to have them come out and measure, the worker (I forget his name) was very knowledgeable, and took very careful measurements. They were even able to determine that my walls were 1/8 inch out of plumb, and ordered the glass to accomodate for the discrepancy. What impressed me most is that my final shower wound up being slightly bigger than my original design - Dulles Glass still honored my original estimate price even when they could have charged me more. Today was installation day, and the workers arrived on-time, not just with everything necessary to do the install, but with drop cloths and other padding to protect my bathroom and not make a mess while they were working. They did not seem a bit rushed, which made me feel like they cared enough to do the job right. The install looks incredible, and the workers explained how to care for the glass before leaving. I worked with a lot of various companies and contractors during this 6 month home addition and renovation endeavor. I can easily say that out of all of them, Dulles Glass was the only one who gave me not ONE problem, from first contact through job completion. I felt compelled to honor their work with a fitting review on here. I could not recommend them more. They are professionals who know how to take care of their customers and ensure a job well-done.

That is what I think of when dealing with Dulles Glass & Mirror. From the first time we were in the show room, all the way to the install, we have been treated respectfully and had excellent work done for us. I would recommend this company to anyone looking for a new glass shower. The men they have working for them know what they are doing and take their time to do it right. So refreshing in a market where many workmen don't know what they are doing.

The door is very high quality and the installation was very professional. The installers showed up on time and were very considerate, including covering the stairs to avoid tracking anything on the carpet. The door fits and operates perfectly.
