We know that any remodeling project can seem a bit daunting, so we've put together some pointers for making the planning process easier and ensuring the installation process goes as quickly and smoothly as possible. These are advanced tips, so are likely more suitable for your contractor or a very advanced DIY-er.
It really depends on a lot of factors. Here are a few factors that determine the cost of a glass shower door:
Size of the glass enclosure - a larger shower will of course cost more than a smaller one. The number of panels, whether you have a steam-shower transom at the top - all will factor into the cost for the glass.
Type of glass - You can choose between 3/8" glass, premium 1/2" glass. Most of the shower doors made and sold by Big Box retailers are made out of 1/4" glass. Some of our framed showers are available in 1/4" glass, but beyond those, you're going to be choosing between the 3/8" and 1/2" glass. You can also choose different looks like gray glass, rain glass, frosted glass and more. The type of glass you choose will influence the price.
Type of hardware - Some of the hardware you choose will be slightly more expensive depending on the style and finish that you choose.
The best way to get a realistic price on your shower door is to go through our no-obligation shower door quote system. Design your dream shower here
You'll need to have a few details hashed out before you get a quote on your shower door. First, you'll need to have your bathroom plan completed, so you know the shape and approximate measurements of your shower. For example, you’ll need to know if the shower you want is a corner shower, single door, or any of the other types listed above. Then, you'll need to have an idea of how you want to customize your shower. Do you want extra-thick glass? Do you want HDglass, low-iron ultra-clear glass? What color would you like for your hardware and finishes? We’ll walk you through all of this during the quote process.
You'll want to have your bathroom project pretty solid before starting the ordering process. The best measurements can be obtained after the tile is laid for your shower. This step is critical, because after that, we fabricate your glass shower door to fit the space you have exactly. This precision will ensure that your shower door is leak-free and durable for your new bathroom.
All frameless showers are NOT created equal. Let's take a look at the most common factors for why shower quotes vary:
Glass Thickness: 3/8" glass and 1/2" glass are common sizes and serve different purposes. Half-inch glass may be used when there is a glass-to-glass panel required on your shower. Or, you may choose it for its sturdiness or aesthetics. When comparing quotes, this is often a place where other manufacturers may differ.
Metal Clips vs. U-channels: When clients tell us, they'd like a frameless glass shower, we give them one. A true frameless shower is installed with 2-inch metal clips fixed directly onto glass panels at minimal intervals. You do have the option of using less expensive u-channels; aluminum rails that fit over the entire edge of glass panels but these add a framed look to a frameless glass shower. Some companies refer to this as a semi-frameless shower. These rails are used to secure glass panels to a floor, wall or ceiling. Frameless glass shower door estimates for these metal clip installations and u-channel installations will be very different.
Door Hinges: If you're seeing a difference in your shower quote, look for the type of hinges you're being quoted for. We generally quote using side hinges because these can be sealed for a more watertight fit around your shower door. the other hinge – a pivot hinge -- cannot be sealed.
Glass Type and Treatment Options: For clients who are investing in an all-glass shower, we recommend upgrading to HDglass, which has no greenish tint like standard clear glass. We also have a proprietary glass treatment option called ClearShield which makes your shower stain resistant and easier to clean (and even comes with a 10-year warranty). These two upgrades will add cost to your quote, so make sure you're comparing apples to apples.
Hardware Style and Finishes: Just as showerhead and faucet designs vary in price and finishing choices, so do style choices for clips, rails, door handles, towel bars and robe hooks. We manufacture the highest quality hardware available; our hinges, clips and accessories are made from solid metal. Other companies use metal-plated or cast metal hardware that can't compete for durability. Now that you know all frameless glass showers aren't created equal, let us help you make the best choices for your investment — and your budget.
Always make sure to have your tile work completed before installation!

Our glass shower doors are fabricated from different glass types, colors, and patterns.
High clarity with a minimal greenish tint. Very easy to maintain and the most common option chosen by our customers.
A colorless appearance type with an exceptional clarity, a higher light transmission, and less greenish tint. True colors of shower tile can be seen from the outside of the shower.
Distinctive and uniformly smooth with a satin-like appearance. This kind of glass admits soft light while providing a bit of opacity. Only one side of the glass is etched leaving the other side smoother for easier cleaning.
Beautiful patterns of rain give this type of glass a decorative look. It admits soft light while providing visual control. Only one side of the glass is patterned leaving the other side smoother for easier cleaning.
Distinctive glass, textured on one side that provides a higher level of privacy. Very similar to our Opaque-Clear glass type but has the look of ice frozen on glass.
Bronze glass shower-door panels showcase a tinted coppery look. The opaque bronze glass is a unique choice for every shower door glass. The tint adds to the privacy of your shower enclosure.
The Gray shower glass type presents a tinted smokey look. As the darkest of our tints, gray shower glass offers the most privacy of them all. Choose gray shower glass panels for a very unique look and high level privacy in your bathrrom.
Our premium hardware is the keystone of your glass shower door. Durable and designed to last, our hardware keeps your shower door working properly.
